The Education of Moses
Posted by Pastor Szekely on January 24, 2007
“And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds”. Acts 7:22
To me this is a really interesting, Biblical statement on the education of Moses. During Moses’ upbringing, the Egyptians were thought of as a scientifically advanced people. They had a thoroughly developed view of the universe. They believed the Nile was the center of the Earth, that the planet sat on the back of a crocodile, etc. It was a thought-out and developed view, but it was ridiculous…And Moses was trained in this educational system! (Who says a child cannot hold to the Biblical account of Creation even if he is subjected to the lie of evolution?)
Although Moses was subjected to this educational system, we never find one trace of it in the first five Books of the Bible. God’s Word is neatly laid out in Truth! The Bible should not line up with science, but science needs to line up with the Bible! For example:
The foundation of all modern science lies within this statement: There are 5 principles that must be so for anything to exist – Time / Origin / Force / Space / Matter – in that order.Isn’t it more than coincidence that we find this statement expressed in the first verse of the first Book of the Bible?
“In the beginning [Time] God [Origin] created [Force] the heaven [Space] and the earth [Matter]“. Genesis 1:1
God is so good! The basis for everything we believe is found in the first eleven chapters of the Book of Genesis. The way a person receives those eleven chapters will determine their outlook on education, economics, relationships, religion, society…and science.
