For the 4th quarter of 2020, the Sabbath School lessons seek to answer the question: What does it mean to have a "Christian education"?  The lessons were authored by various presidents of 13 Seventh-day Adventist colleges and universities in North America. 

True wisdom, knowledge, and understanding come from God, the only One who created and sustains all existence.  Therefore, all true education should direct our minds toward Him and His own revelation about Himself.  The Bible is the greatest revelation we have of who God is, and what He has done, is doing, and will do for humanity, so it must be central to all honest and meaningful Christian education.  Because what good is a great education in just science, economics, politics, or theology, if the end result is that you would lose your own soul, as Jesus said in Mark 8:36?

Theology?  Yes!  That is the study of the nature of God and religious belief.  Devout Jews during Jesus' time on earth knew their Bible (our Old Testament) better than most Christians today, but their leaders caused Jesus to be crucified.   Therefore, Christian education must involve more than just imparting knowledge.  Let us use this time together to identify the missing ingredients, and how to make them a vital part of our character.

  1. Why are there so many different Christian churches?
  2. And why do you go to the one you usually attend?
  3. Does it matter if your church teaches things that are not biblical?
  4. With so much "fake news" in the world today, how can we know what God wants us to know?
  5. What knowledge and actions are essential for salvation about which most people can agree?
  6. What is the likelihood of still being friends and having unity when there is disagreement about things not essential to salvation that violate long-standing beliefs?                                                                                                                                 If any of these questions stimulate your thinking, and you care to share your answers, please send an email to BibleExploration7@gmail.com.
