Day 89: Check Out Our Competition:


In addition to Christian competition, there is competition from a more secular front. The two listed here teach Free Market Economics and the Original Intent of the Constitution. You might think that by enrolling in one of these competing programs, you could become

  An Extraordinary American,
 
An Extraordinary Christian,
  An Extraordinary Human Being.

But they don't help you become a Christian at all.

America's Founding Fathers would certainly approve of the Constitutional and Free Market slant of Liberty Classroom. But the Founders also believed that the Constitution could not protect liberty in the absence of religion and morality. Sam Adams said,

[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt.

John Adams often disagreed with his cousin Sam. But John said:

[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

[I]t is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.

Sam Adams wrote to his cousin John:

Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age, by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, of inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity. . . and, in subordination to these great principles, the love of their country. . . . In short, of leading them in the study and practice of the exalted virtues of the Christian system.

Liberty Classroom does not teach the religion of the Bible. If the Founders could travel through time, and see our radically secular and relativistic culture first hand, they would say the primary thing that needs to be taught is religion and morality. Not found in the Liberty Classroom.
