Roads Scholars

I have basketball practice at a public elementary school in Edmond, and this is a sign on a wall inside the school. It is incorrect not only morally, but logically.

Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Jesus says clearly that not all roads, or gates, lead to success. Even if we did not have Bible references to tell us how wrong this sign is, we can easily disprove the sign logically. For one thing, two opposite roads cannot both lead to success. Also, if all roads lead to success, their would be absolutely no failures, which of course, there are.

The one good thing about the sign: I always get a laugh before basketball practice.

Hey Lincoln,
you are absoulutely right about the “All roads lead to sucess.”

It’s funny what people can say these days)

p.s. Did you hear that were doing a duet at church?

Mrs.Peabody said that she was going to give you the music on sunday.

welcome to our totally intolerant,
totally neutral public school system.

if logic is intolerant, throw that too.

If public schools throw logic, then aren’t they being intolerant as well?
(Not to mention that denying logic would be to deny God, ourselves, and the world as we know it. Think about it: logic is an attribute of God, thus denying it is to deny Him.
We can’t go through life without logic. In fact, that is one a the four criteria an organism must meet to be classified as a life form: sensing and responding to change. Doesn’t sound like logic, but wait, we see a red light, red lights mean stop, thus, we stop. We feel hungry, feeling hungry means we need to eat, thus, we eat. We see a pop-up on the internet, a click can terminate a pop-up, thus, we click.
What do the public schools have in mind? Throw EVERYTHING to make EVERYBODY happy? Sorry, not gonna work. Not in my views, yours, nor theirs.

Totally ridiculous sign.

But then again, it’s odd that your commenter finds something both “totally intolerant” and “totally neutral” — simultaneously!

Anyone using all or totally might want to pause for a spot of consideration.
