Opportunity to put Bible back into schools!

NEWS: Tennessee's state Board of Education has approved guidelines teaching the Bible in public high schools despite concern that the curriculum could be challenged in court.
Legislation approved in 2008 authorized a course for a "nonsectarian, nonreligious academic study of the Bible" in public schools. The course will teach students about the content of the Bible and its historical context. It's an elective, meaning high schools can choose whether to offer it to students as a social studies credit, and students can decide whether to take it.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: This same law is now before the Kentucky state legislature (Senate Bill 142). Those in Kentucky can contact their state-level legislators to encourage them to pass this bill. To learn who your legislator is click here and simply enter your zip code. Those in other states can also contact their legislators to ask them to enact the same law.

God says in Isaiah 55:11 "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

The teaching of God's Word will 'NOT RETURN VOID.' By all means, let us take this opportunity to get the Bible back into schools!!!
