reading provides detailed information on each worldview, giving students the opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of topic matter.
Graphs and scoresheets are created using statitstics from CIA World Factbook and FreedomHouse.org. The curriculum concludes with summaries and analysis based on score marks for each religion, government type, and nation.
How does one discern from which tree they are being fed? Do you feast on God's truth from the Tree of Life? Or do you dine from the tree of knowledge?
You MIGHT be surprised! Because the tree of knowledge often sounds pretty good. But that tree is where the world's version of religion comes from...and that tree leads only to destruction.
Wake up, and strengthen what remains and is about to die,
for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God.
Revelations 3:2 ESV
America was built on a strong foundation of biblical values. Our laws and regulations historically leaned toward protection of the family and defense of biblical morality and applied biblical principles. I propose that it was these principles above all, which made America great in the first place! Whether or not you believe that America was founded by Christians, it is obvious that the Constitution was deeply influenced by a biblical worldview and the founders were accommodating towards the Christian faith and towards faith in general.
We are still at the top of the heap in terms of personal freedoms and prosperous overall. Yet there are strong undercurrents of the trouble that may be coming. This is not the proper forum for a long evaluation of what has brought us to our current place, but America is losing ground economically, educationally, militarily, and spiritually. In some ways, this curriculum is in a hurry to be read. Because of the political and spiritual decline we are witnessing, the numbers from 2002 are changing before our eyes. America is still the most economically advanced nation in our time, but it may not last long, at the rate we are moving. It is up to us whether it will continue to be a great nation, or will fade into mediocrity or worse.
In the public arena, it has become popular to hold a neutral view on issues once regarded as moral imperatives. Whereas once our children knew that lying and stealing is wrong, life experience as presented on the nightly news has taught them that it depends on the circumstances, or even how you feel about a thing, whether you may reasonably lie and steal. So I asked myself, "What is it like to live in societies where God's principles have no bearing? " Our (my first class) research on the topic did, indeed, prove very telling. And that is what we hope to share with each class, each student who works their way through this curriculum, in the hope that they can use it to make an impact for Christ in the world.
What you believe about man, and about God matters.
But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone
who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect...I Peter 3:15
As I began the last leg of this journey (this volume) I believe the Lord spoke into my spirit the following directions:
To serve Me best, it should be:
"… so plain and clear, that they will not need a teacher.
….take them for a ride, with the Holy Spirit as their teacher.
…inspiring, not provoking fear, anger or dispair.
….produce love and not hate for those with a different worldview.
….every word chosen to address
love joy peace patience kindness
goodness faithfulness gentleness self control.
Against these things there is no law.
TRUTH ON EVERY PAGE
LOVE ON EVERY PAGE
HOPE ON EVERY PAGE
CHRIST ON EVERY PAGE
God alone..... when in doubt, pull it out!
Thank you, Lord!
