The morass of commentary and crazy on this issue shows just why Martin Dixon wants to keep his head down.
Why advocate for excellence and principle as head of our school system when it means talking honestly to religious zealots. Much easier to put your fingers in your ears and say “la la la la la I am not listening”.
With personal convictions like this, $15, six hours, and a note from a “pastor” … ACCESS Ministry can make it possible for you be an instructor in a room full of 7 year olds:
My challenge is simple for you – ask yourself the brutal truth about who Jesus is and see if your conscience is totally at rest because I think there will be a part of your inner fabric that knows the answer even though your mind will try and mount a compelling counter argument and your conscience will try anything to have you discount this truth. Go outside one night soon when the sky is clear and look at the southern cross star constellation – now consider that this actually represents the five points on the cross that Jesus was wounded.
Long before Jesus ever came into the world, the Psalmist wrote how the stars were God’s handiwork and He hung each star in place for a purpose. Set aside astrology and consider that the 12 constellations do in fact paint the story of the Bible across the sky – it is there every day and night for people to see and be shown that Jesus is actually real.
But a fool says in their heart there is no God, while a much smaller few have truth revealed beacuse they genuinely seek the truth, are not proud or too ignorant to search for, and find the truth. That is why Jesus said, suffer not the little chldren to come unto me!
So, choose this day who you may serve – there is a coming time when the choice will have passed you by and each person will give account – either a person will go to heaven or hell. The eyes of the Lord are in every place beholding the evil and the good – it would be wise to not deny a child the chance to learn of Jesus. God gave his wisdom to confound the wisdom of the world – it a gift freely available so any gift should not be so casually withheld from anyone.
Yes, this is exactly what we are inviting via this system … according to ACCESS: “a God given open door to children and young people” … we’re waiting.
