God Wants Academic Success

Colossians 2:4 & 8 has been used to suggest that Christians should not go to college or seek to excell in school. On the contrary, it says repeatedly that we have wisdom, knowledge and understanding in the Anointed One (Christ) and His anointing. We know that we recieve salvation (and therefore all things that pertain to life and godliness) through grace by faith. Therefore we are exhorted to remain firm in faith, but not to start submitting to rules about what not to do, like go to college, if we otherwise need to.

Further, let me argue, based on Col. 1: 18 that Jesus the Christ, the Anointed on, has supremacy in all things. We also, just as we are servants like and in Him, so also we recieve by faith dominion. Thus, also we should expect to show servant leadership in this area also: education.

Thanks for your graciousness in overlooking imperfections in the broadcast. Please believe with me for some technical help, some more equipment, and for time to make all this better and better.
