The Golden Calf

This is a stock picture from the internet, but it says so very much.  In my second grade class, our precious, precious teacher was a Pastor's wife. She began every day with the Lord's prayer. Every week, Mrs. Lutrell would come by with her cart containing her flannel graph for our Bible story.  This would have been about 1969, seven years after the Supreme Court in its "wisdom" deemed prayer in public schools an unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment's "separation of Church and state."  Nine old men were fooled by the Tempter's idol--this time not a golden calf, but a parchment document.  The Constitution has become our Baal, and as a nation, we worship it above all other gods.

I thank God for Mrs, Robinson and Mrs. Lutrell and the school administrators at that little school in central Florida. They feared God more than man. The tragedies in the news these days are not because of the accessibility of guns, but the inaccessibility of Christ Jesus in the life of our nation and our nation's children,

"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me."
John 12:32


  1. My teacher was Mrs. Jones. I was in 1st grade. She read a Bible story every day and prayed with us. And prayed for us.

  2. Amen. How would our nation be different if we could do this again?
