The following is an excerpt from "Education From a Biblical Worldview"
"It is a big mistake to think of the academic or intellectual realm as having little or no effect on everyday life. This has been a serious shortcoming of the twentieth century church. For over 150 years we have abdicated our responsibility to speak truth in the intellectual and academic realm. This is a relatively new trend in the history of Christianity. Historically Christianity has been the leading influence in intellectual and academic affairs. When Christians fail to speak truth against errors like those expressed in the Humanist Manifesto, we are allowing these lies to advance and infect our culture."
"Ideas have consequences. According to an extensive study, in the twentieth century alone over 170 million people were put to death by governments based upon worldviews that reject the truth of the Bible. How many of these 170 million people died before they had the opportunity to hear the gospel? The same worldview that allowed these governments to slaughter their own people allowed them to persecute Christians and prohibit missionary activity in their countries."
"The problem lies in the fact that whenever God is removed from education, all education becomes a tool of whatever political group controls society."
