Defending Truth Without Contention / Education in the Government
Everyone in this world has their own definition of truth that guides their philosophies and actions. How do we seek, recognize and stand for truth without being contentious? This presentation will give simple steps to seek and recognize truth as well as techniques to help us become the peacemakers the Savior asked us to be while standing for truth and righteousness.
Jenny and her husband drove all the way from St. George to share with us her message and warnings. Her main concern was keeping the presentation positive. The first half of her message was about what the future of education is going. She showed a video from the ACT program made about how the future could look. It was actually cool and positive, but then she asked the question, “What message is behind the teaching? and “Who is doing the teaching?” Come to find out the “stockholders” are those who are investing in education and they are anti-God, anti-community and anti-family.
