From the Desk of Mr. Nast

In “The Truth Project” Dr. Tackett addresses a variety of topics based on the Christian worldview.  In the first tour he presents a concept that is woven throughout the remaining “tours,” what he calls the Cosmic Battle.  It is, in fact, an ongoing fight between God’s truth and every lie that runs contrary to his truth. It pits the lies and illusions of the world against what God established as eternal.  Truth is what is really real; it corresponds to God’s reality. When God’s plan is for unity the world calls for divisiveness, where God establishes authority he’s countered with rebellion, responsibility with blame, and social roles with jealousy.  Dr. Tackett’s point is that so many of our failures are because we don’t recognize the allurement of the world for what it is - Satan’s or our own lies. In Genesis the serpent began the cosmic battle with the question, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”  It was his first deception and it paved the way for every deception since. It’s our goal to help our students learn to see deception for what it is - contrary to God’s truth. We hope you will work with your children in the same way to develop a desire for truth rather than lies, particularly when those lies are often so attractive.
