The Gospel Needed More Now Than Ever
Most of the public- so called "education" is basically propaganda for secular humanism. Yet rather than retreating, Christians need to be steeped enough in the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ to combat much of the nonsense that is being passed off as education in our public schools. However this must be done by getting Christians to first be educated about who they are as followers of Jesus Christ and what we believe. The world we live in is indeed pagan and confused but so was the Greek world that the early church encountered as it set out to expand the church. The kingdom of darkness is always opposing the "children of light" but that can't be an excuse for believers to not "put on the whole armor of God" so that they can be able to catapult the "gospel of peace" to men and women who are at "enmity against God". We must be equipped to intelligently articulate the message of the Jesus Christ's good news and all it entails, as well as defending the faith by being "...ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:(1 Peter 3:15) Remember "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world"
