Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Phillipians 4:8
Looking at the Instagram of the primary suspect in the murder of the young food blogger, Gabby Petito, and you will see an idolization of gore and horor. They are in pictures reading books like Fight Club, Lullaby, and others that showcase violence.
As we fill our minds with violent thoughts, we will produce violent actions.
As we fill our minds with faith, hope, and love, we produce actions that are consistently focused on love and hope for God, for others, and for ourselves.
Filling Our Minds
One of the key aspects of quality education is to fill our minds with any thing that is worthy of praise so that we can understand and interpret the inevitable pain, violence, and hardship of life in this fallen world. Using the Bible and the life and person of Jesus Christ as the foundation for our worldview, we build on that cornerstone a vision of life that is full of hope and love.
When you have faithfulfness towards God and others as your fundamentals, you can deal with the works of the flesh without partaking of them.
Our goal is to graduate students who are so grounded in the wonderful life that God has called us to that they can deal with the pressures and difficulties of life. Learning at Aletheia provides our students the tools to think critically, to examine God’s word thoroughly, to worship God wholeheartedly, to proclaim the gospel in word and deed, to teach Biblically, and to serve the church worldwide.
This is what we do, and you should seek to learn from a position of Godly strenght as well. It provides you resources to manage life no matter the difficulties that arise.
