Time to put God back in schools

— Columbine, Virginia Tech and now Sandy Hook. How many more of these horrific tragedies are we going to have to experience before we finally start to question the underlying ideologies and philosophies that have served as the catalyst for this behavior?

When something like this happens we are all morally outraged at the thought that somebody could actually do such a thing. However, if what’s being taught in the public schools and universities is true (i.e., atheism, evolution, marxism, and moral relativism), who’s to say that these killers have actually done anything wrong? Think about it. Is it wrong for a lion to kill a gazelle? After all, aren’t we all just animals that are a little more highly evolved than lions? It’s simply survival of the fittest.

America’s social engineers (e.g., John Dewey) have systematically expunged Christianity from our nation’s schools. Instead of being taught the Ten Commandments, students today are being taught that there are no such things as objective moral standards and that they themselves can decide what’s right and wrong. In other words, who’s to say that Hitler was any less of a humanitarian than Mother Theresa? It’s all subjective, right?

The fact that we all experience a sense of moral indignation and repugnance as a result of these killings is the single greatest proof for the existence of God. Why? Because if all we are is rearranged pond scum, and we decide for ourselves what’s right and wrong, we have no objective basis for our feelings. We all know this is nonsense.

God does exist! And this is why we all intuitively know the difference between right and wrong. Our Creator has given us a sense of justice. Please consider the implications of God’s existence. Your eternity hangs in the balance.
