4. WHY STUDY BIBLE KNOWLEDGE?

Bishop Fulton Sheen, an American Bishop of the Catholic Church and renowned theologian says “the purpose of education is not to train our children and us to merely make a living; the purpose of education is to acquaint us with the truth, truth about everything, truth of science, truth about literature and above all the truth of man”. According to Bishop Sheen “the one basic truth we have to learn is the truth of our own existence”. He laments that people live years of their lives without learning “why they are here and where they are going”. It is this absence of a goal or purpose that makes so many people full of anxiety, worry, fear, psychosis and neurosis – after all, what is the use of living unless you know the purpose of living. For Sheen, the meaning and purpose of life cannot be understood apart from  God, nor, he writes, “can anyone enter into contact with the whole of environment unless he enters into  relationship with God.” Hence, when God is removed, true education—that is, education that takes stock of what the human person really is—becomes impossible. 

Our schools, colleges and universities ignore God and the spiritual side of the human person, which the  Catholic Church teaches to be “that which is of greatest value in him, that by which he is most especially in God’s image”. Without God, any system of education is necessarily incomplete. 

The Bible Knowledge Ministry attempts to fill this void in our education system to furnish our students with a compass with which they may find their port, which is the Kingdom of God. Ultimately it is the wisdom of God that will carry our students through the toughest situations of life. 

“All your children shall be taught by the Lord and great shall be the peace of your children”. 

Isaiah 54:13
