Education

In our time of “Information Age” where we have changed to information society the knowledge is doubling allegedly all 5-10 years. In the meantime you don’t have to go to the library or to pore over heaps of books, to get answers for difficult questions or to solve a problem. The connection to WorldWideWeb makes almost anything possible from home, and advanced wireless technology enables from almost every place on the earth the access to an incredibly large amount of data. In the process a certain amount of caution should be exercised, because not everything asserted e.g. in Wikipedia is absolutely truthful.
In addition newspapers, radio and television induce an enormous sensory overload, that will make us blind and deaf to certain things, especially when we use these traditional media not wise. 
Already in ancient Rome, the senators recognized that stupid people can be governed easily. Our faithful servant Angela Merkel, who increases federal money, has called the political campaign of her Christian Social Party “prosperity for all”. That implies for today and tomorrow: 
Education for everyone!

Now, I don’t necessarily share the creed, that we have the power to form the German Republic of Education. Nevertheless I will 
bring up my talent in the future to provide more wisdom and understanding to the wise.

For that reason I have called the theme category education on my 44th birthday to life.

I will focus my attention in the first place on the tabernacle, for it is an image and a foreshadowing of the heavenly things. For the construction plan of the earthly temple teaches a better understanding of God.

My explanations will be continually  related to the book of books – the Bible – for I have the hope and the confidence that these
words, which are thousands of years old, about our information age will be fulfilled:

“But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro and knowledge shall be increased.”

The prophet Hosea proclaimed in Israel 27 centuries ago how it should not be:

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, that you should be no longer priests. Seeing that you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children.”
