A Compelling Reason for Rigorous Training of the Mind
I love Pastor John Piper’s exhortation to rigorous training of the mind.
A basic and compelling reason for education—the rigorous training of the mind—is so that a person can read the Bible with understanding.
That is so obvious that it is utterly profound.
I am reminded that this is one of the great reasons we are engaged in the labor of classical Christian education. A mind that is shaped and nurtured to read the Bible well is a mind that is not easily taken in by the lies and half-lies of a thousand bankrupt philosophies and worldviews but is instead prepared to live in truth and wisdom, to the glory of God.
