As an educator and as a parent, I have had a growing concern that our society has so diminished and distorted the meaning of truth, that our children are growing up with confusing and opposing messages, and the truth has become blurred if it is even recognizable at all.
Unfortunately, much of the church has absorbed some of these cultural presuppositions without questioning their validity. We are allowing the tares to grow with the wheat and we don’t even recognize the tares for what they are. I have been grieved by the inability of Christians to clearly articulate or defend a Christian, biblical worldview. I don’t believe this is intentional for most people. The problem is simply that looking at everything through the lens of God’s truth as revealed in Scripture is also not being intentionally done. The result is that an alarming number of Christians are accepting or “buying” the presuppositional lies of our culture.
Ideas have consequences. Truth matters. This blog is a collection of my thoughts and communications with my school staff and families as we attempt to more faithfully “buy the truth” as God defines truth, and to not sell it, so that we can gain wisdom, discipline, and understanding. If we don’t, how can we be salt and light?
