Bible "Study"?

Kentucky, Arizona, and several other states have passed bills in recent years allowing public schools to teach "Bible classes." This of course will be watch dogged with secular oversight to make sure nobody actually gets a "religious" eduction.

Not sure I'd want my kid learning Holy Scripture based on the dictates of the ACLU (Anti Christian Liberties Union) in some public school by some teacher who might be an atheist anyway.

What a screwed up mess this world has become. When public schools first began, the Bible was what kids learned to read from. However -

Jesus reminds us that Scripture is not for private interpretation, but a witness pointing to Him! He even chides religious leaders for their slant on Scripture in John 5:39, 40 - "You pore over the Scriptures because you presume that by them you possess eternal life. These are the very words that testify about Me, yet you refuse to come to Me to have life." (Berean Study Bible)

Maybe we should listen to the One revealed by the Bible, as to its uses.
