Christ-Centered Education

From the “Rules and Precepts Observed at Harvard College”, dated September 26, 1642:

“Let every student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17:3) and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning. And seeing the Lord only giveth wisdom, let every one seriously set himself by prayer in secret to seek it of him (Proverbs 2, 3).”

  1. I think -not sure – that Harvard even removed that long time inscription from the front gate.

    My son was just accepted to @GordonCollege
    on early decision. I had told him to apply
    to several schools, as is the norm.

    He said “If I prayed earnestly to get into Gordon
    and I know God said yes, (and Grandma heard the same thing in her prayer), why would I apply to more than one school? That’s not faith”

    Though thou slay me…
