Founding Father, Dr. Benjamin Rush [1746-1813] was a Pennsylvania delegate to the Continental Congress, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the Surgeon General to the Continental Army. He said:

“The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in Religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty, and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments.”

—Benjamin Rush (1746-1813)

America’s educational system has been steadily and deliberately taken over by some of the most atheistic and paganistic people ever to exist within a society. Consequently, religion (most particularly, the Christian religion), “the only foundation for a useful education in a republic,” has been purged from our educational system. Consequent to this, the concept of virtue has disappeared from our educational system and liberty is something that will soon exist only for a while as a memory in a few aging minds.

Exacerbating our dire situation is the fact that private institutions of learning, that have been committed to the role of religion, virtue and liberty, are now secularizing themselves; steadily and deliberately lowering the standards supportive of the “useful education” vital to our republic. Those considering lowering biblical, time-proven standards need to remember that once toothpaste is dispensed from a tube it is impossible to get back into the tube.

Across the board, Christian individuals and institutions need, before it is too late to wake up, wise up and spiritually shape-up so that God can clean up the mess we have allowed to be made of our families, churches and nation. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chron. 7:14).
