Last Man Standing

“Last Man Standing” is being cancelled from ABC, even though the hit comedy is very popular.   While I don’t watch a lot of tv, I do enjoy the show.   Tim Allen was always a favorite of mine growing up.  (Who else remembers Home Improvement?).  His show is one of the few with conservative values.    Notice the following clip:

I think we need to remember that all media is educational…  Depending on the program depends on what is the education.  And the powers that be are telling us what kind of education they want.  An education that is godless.

20th Century Fox is reportedly looking for a new home for the popular show.   Pureflix posted that they are interested in it, which I think would be great!

Stone That Cannot Be Moved.

“Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces….”  (Daniel 2:34)

I am awake this evening watching yet another monument being removed from New Orleans.  Now, I just want to say that I have never been to New Orleans, nor was it on my list of places I wanted to go to.   However, I think the removal of the monuments there are a mistake.   If the monuments and historical markers that certain groups find offensive are removed, would there be any left?   History is supposed to show us the good, bad and the ugly of what has happened.  Let them be.

I have seen some magnificent monuments in this country to various individuals. Whether in Washington DC, Memphis, or Richmond, these all tell a story of our past.  The stones they were carved from is beautiful and my family and I enjoy learning from them.   Yes, that’s right, the best education is, a lot of times, outside the pages of a textbook.

The powers that be may try to erase our past.  They may take down some monuments that are over 100 years old.  And, though the cowards wearing masks backed by their mayor may have taken down some monuments in the south, I am here to tell you there is a Stone that will NEVER be removed.

His name is Jesus.   The only hope we have.

“Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.   Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”   (Acts 4:10-12)

While the hostile removal of our history makes my blood boil, I’m resting tonight in the blessed Rock of Ages.   How about you?

Education: Does God Have An Opinion

I just finished reading Education: Does God Have An Opinion by Israel Wayne, published by Master Books.   The book is divided up into two parts.  The first, he calls “The Apologetic,” in which he deals with establishing a truly Biblical philosophy of education.  The second part, is what he calls “The Core Subjects,” is all about applying a Biblical worldview consistently to all areas of education, from science to history, from mathematics to logic, from philosophy to language arts, and everything in between!

God has a lot to say about education in His Word.   And by far, Education: Does God Have An Opinion is the best book I have read on the subject.  Mr Wayne lays it out there Scripturally.  His argument is sound and logical, standing on the firm foundation of God’s Word.   His approach to the core subjects will bring new life to your way of thinking.   And his use of Scriptures makes the study exciting.  This isn’t Wayne’s opinion he is writing about, it’s God’s.

The book tackles subjects such as sports, socialization, public schools, academics, and a host of other issues that parents often have questions or concerns about.   This is a “must have” for every family library, as well as every church library, and if I had the money to make it happen, I’d buy them myself!

Here’s a video from Mr Wayne about his book:
