I heard last week that U.S. students are ranked first in one area when compared to students in other countries surveyed. That's the good news. But the bad news is that our students are ranked 25th in math and 21st in science compared to their counterparts in the rest of the world.

What are our students ranked first in? SELF CONFIDENCE! So we are instilling in our young people the idea that they are doing well while the reality is that we are lagging sadly behind much of the rest of the world in preparing them for the competitive realities of the global marketplace. The self confidence that our educators are doing such a good job of conveying is not based in reality. Our young people believe they are doing well, they are prepared and ready to compete--but they are not!

I think this perfectly illustrates the truth decay going on in our culture. So much of what we believe and how we act is based on unreality. We believe we are fine. We're as good as most other people. We're all God's children. God accepts me just the way I am. But the truth is far different from what we believe!

Join us this Sunday at East Baptist as we continue our series, "Developing A Christian Worldview". Our message will focus on how we (humanity) got here. Where did we come from? Once we answer that question from a biblical perspective we will see that there are life-altering implications in believing there is a God who created us with a specific purpose in mind.

Let's build our beliefs and our lives on reality--the truth of God's eternal word!
