Best and lasting education comes from Bible

To the Editor:
College tuition is too high in Tennessee. College education is overpriced and may be a money making scam at some colleges. Online unaccredited colleges are always money making scams. The cost to attend a state college or university in Tennessee has more than doubled in the last 10 years.
It’s taking students longer than four years to graduate. As a result students can’t depend on the Tennessee Hope Lottery Scholarship to pay their complete tuition. The value of a college education has decreased and a college education doesn’t guarantee you a good job. At least one-third of all college graduates will always be underemployed and never benefit financially from their degree. One study found over 800,000 college graduates are underemployed and working behind the register at retail stores like Walmart, flipping burgers and waiting on tables and janitors!
C.S. Lewis said, “God is no fonder of intellectual slackers than any other slacker.” The wisest thing for the high school class of 2017 and everyone else to do is as the Bible says “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness (Jesus).” As one pastor said, “to be wise keep your face in the book (Bible) not on Facebook.” Read and study the Bible before you read and study any college textbook. The Bible contains more wisdom than all textbooks and professors combined. Christians like Ravi Zacharias ( takes on and defeats all college professors in debates. However, most won’t allow him on their college campus. Most professors are as the Bible says, “Ever learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “I feel that a comprehensive study of the Bible is a liberal education for anyone.” President Theodore Roosevelt said, “No educated man can afford to be ignorant of the Bible.” President John Adams said, “The Bible is the best book in the world. It contains more than all the libraries I have seen.”
Most people benefit from college if they don’t incur huge debt and don’t get indoctrinated with extreme liberal philosophy. The Bible warns, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ Jesus.” The Bible warns, “be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” For at least one-third of college graduates that find they spend four years or more of their life incurring huge loans for the opportunity to be unemployed or underemployed the rest of their life the college diploma and tassel isn’t worth the hassle! They could better spend their time with their fidget spinner!
