God is Making Me A

Lifelong Learner

Realizing that education does not end with "school," but continues throughout my life.

Religion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.
Northwest Ordinance, Article III, 1787
I do not limit my learning to those things the State says I should learn. I follow the curriculum of the Creator of the Universe.

I do not substitute "infotainment" for first-hand knowledge of the creation and I will not accept the canned factoids of network "docudramas" for solid accounts by eye-witnesses of history.

I question the authority and decrees of all rival lords and false gods. I keep myself apprised of their strategies and lies.

I know that my education does not depend on teachers, but on my own hunger for truth and thirst for knowledge.

Because I am a student of God's Commandments, I know that education is not a "trivial pursuit" of unconnected facts, but a holistic picture of the world as seen through the wisdom and moral absolutes of its Creator.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55
