Letter to the Editor

It seems ludicrous to me that American educators, given the challenge of developing in young minds a love for reading books, are forbidden to allow students to learn from the greatest book of all time, the one that continues to outsell any book ever published — the Bible.
The Bible isn’t just about “religion.” It’s a treasure house of rich, historical fact that is continuously substantiated by other historical documents and modern-day archeological discoveries. It is a fascinating study of the rise and fall of nations, and of man’s search for the truth.
One of the Bible’s teachings is that believers will be persecuted. In 2 Timothy 3:12, we read: “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” A search of the Scriptures will reveal many other passages of this nature.
So, in a way, I guess, Mitch Kahle may be a fulfillment of Scripture. And, if that is true, I thank him for reaffirming the Bible’s teaching.
