Colony of Connecticut 1647, along with the Colony of  Massachusetts pass the Old Deluder Satan Law to prevent illiteracy an to prevent the abuse of power over a population ignorant of Scriptures, as had been the case in Europe.  The law stated:

“It being one chiefe project of that old deluder, Satan, to keepe men from the knowledge of the scriptures, as in former time…

It is therefore ordered…(that) after the Lord hath increased (the settlement) to the number of fifty howshoulders, (they) shall forthwith appoint one within theire towne, to teach all such children as shall resorte to him, to write and read…

And it is further ordered, that where any towne shall increase to the number of one hundred families or howshoulders, they shall sett up a grammar schoole for the university.”

king_james_bible7The Bible — Yet It Lives

by Willard L. Johnson

Generations follow generations — yet it lives.
Nations rise and fall — yet it lives.
Kings, dictators, presidents come and go — yet it lives.
Torn, condemned, burned — yet it lives.
Hated, despised, cursed — yet it lives.
Doubted, suspected, criticized — yet it lives.
Damned by atheists — yet it lives.
Scoffed at by scorners — yet it lives.
Misconstrued and misstated — yet it lives.
Ranted and raved about — yet it lives.
Its inspiration denied — yet it lives.

Yet it lives — as a lamp to our feet.
Yet it lives — as a light to our path.
Yet it lives — as a guidebook for Heaven.
Yet it lives — as a standard for childhood.
Yet it lives — as a guide for youth.
Yet it lives — as a comfort for the aged.
Yet it lives — as food for the hungry.
Yet it lives — as water for the thirsty.
Yet it lives — as rest for the weary.
Yet it lives — as light for the heathen.
Yet it lives — as salvation for the sinner.
Yet it lives — as grace for the Christian.

To know it is to love it.
To love it is to accept it.
To accept its Christ means Life Eternal.

“History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline.  There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration to ultimate national disaster.”

-General Douglas MacArthur
