Okay, this is enough…I’ve recently seen several posts & viral pictures to the effect of “If only God/The Bible were still allowed in schools…” First of all, God is ever-present (Ps 46:1), it is not possible to ban Him from any location. Second, for those who are Christians and have received the Holy Spirit – He LIVES in YOU! This means that everywhere a Christian walks, he takes the very spirit of God with him (Galations 2:22, 1 John 4:12, John 14:23). Third, the bible has not been banned in the U.S. Teachers/school employees are not allowed lead students in prayer, proselytize their faith to students while at school, or use the bible for religious instruction, but both employees and students are absolutely permitted to be in possession of a bible at school. Furthermore, the bible in many states (I can’t speak for all of them) is recognized as a piece of literature and accepted in comparative religion and literary studies.
The purpose of this is not to debate, but to encourage those who question where God was yesterday at Sandy Hook Elementary School or whether He is present at your child’s school. God is present, He is alive, and He is victorious over death. Evil is present, awful things happen, God is still present and victorious. I cannot answer for you that guttural cry for “why.” I don’t know why God allowed this to happen, but I do know that the response He desires from us is to press into Him for comfort, cry out to Him for mercy, and count on Him for justice “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land,” (II Chronicles 7:14).
If we are concerned for God’s presence in our schools, let us gather together in prayer and invite His presence. Intercede for your schools, teach your children to pray, bring Christ to your schools with YOUR presence
