School Can't Stomach Bible

Today I read an article entitled: Teacher Fired for Giving Student Bible.

Here’s an excerpt:
Tutka’s trouble started in October when he was standing by a door waiting on middle school students to enter the building. One student trailed behind the rest.

“Just remember, son,” Tutka told the tardy student, “The first shall be last but the last shall be first.”

A few days later the student asked about the origins of the quote. Tutka told him it was in the Bible.

“Over the next few weeks, the young student asked about a half dozen times where the quote was from in the Bible,” Imhof told Fox News. “Walt kept forgetting to look it up.”

On Oct. 12th, Tutka was eating lunch in the cafeteria when the student approached and brought up the Bible verse. So Tutka took out his Bible and showed the student the verse.

At some point the student mentioned that he did not have a Bible.

“Walt basically said, ‘would you like mine?” Imhof said. “The student said yes and so Walt gave him his personal New Testament.”

This gives us a testimony of a couple of truths about America:

  1. We have children who know little or nothing about God and the Bible.
  2. We have adults who do not want those children to know about God and the Bible.
  3. We have adults who will try to silence those who want children to know about God and the Bible.

How can we, who live in America, really claim to be a Christian nation or desire God’s blessings, when so many deny His Word and punish people for sharing it? Our schools of full of violence and absent of God. We have a serious problem. Wake Up America! We are headed down the wrong path!
