CLAY CENTER – The United States was born in 1776. Since then America has been involved in over 40 wars and other military operations from the American Revolution, Iraq and Afghanistan wars to lesser known operations like the Banana Wars and Utah War. Over 1.3 million U.S. soldiers have died through all these engagements.
MANHATTAN - I have watched and participated in the debate concerning Common Core and its education methods for some time now. I have noticed that most on both sides of the argument have forgotten what God considers the primary purpose of education. Many have also forgotten who our children's primary teachers are supposed to be. It has, however, been good to see that some opposed to that plan have pled for their right to oversee the education of their children. Maybe it is time to remind ourselves of God's plan for education.
MANHATTAN - I have discussed in past articles the fact that persecution of Christians has come to America. Scripture gives us advice on how to handle this when it occurs. For instance, 1 Peter 3:15-16 states. "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander."
