LET US START AT THE BEGINNING! Today it seems that a lot of people, most people maybe, don’t care a thing about history. It appears they only care about the present and not how they arrived at the place where they are today. Maybe that is why so many have a desire to destroy statutes, memorials, and historical items as if when those things are destroyed the past and all knowledge of it would be eliminated. And some seem to think if you can eliminate the Bible from schools on the primary, secondary, and college and university level then God himself would be eliminated; or at least any knowledge of Him. A great philosopher once said, “Stupid is as stupid does.” If one assumes that to be true then surely our society is filled with stupid people.
So let us start at the beginning. “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” (Genesis 1:1 NIV). As hard as mankind has tried to eliminate even the thought of there being a supernatural being or a God who actually created everything around us and as far as the eye can see and beyond they have not been able to accomplish it. Attempting to eliminate any mention of God from the public square or from the educational system will not eliminate the reality of God because the heavens and the earth God created screams the reality of God 24/7/365 every place in the world. “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world,” (Psalm 19:1-4 NIV). God is speaking but in this “smart” society with our “smart” phones are people really listening? “Stupid is as stupid does.”
