The Environment of Education
There is no such thing as religious neutrality in anyone’s educational material, method, or philosophy. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” (Prov 1:7) means that you cannot go anywhere in pursuit of knowledge without answering this fundamental question – ‘do you fear the Lord?’ If it is true that God created the universe ex nihilo, and that ‘in Him we live and move and have our being’, then how can we ever faithfully study anything without acknowledging the full authority of God over the creation and providence of that thing? As faithful disciples, we must learn to bring every thought captive to Christ, and to ‘the Queen of the sciences’.
