“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
Men get wrapped up in the things of this world, forgetting–or never having known–that the things of this world are temporary and will not last.
This includes the once-honored college education.
Once upon a time, graduating from a college meant prestige, a better job and a bigger paycheck.
Where did that dream go?
NOW, college has degenerated into little more than a screening process for the right types of licensing: keeping the wrong people out, letting the right people in.
For a hefty price, of course.
You don’t have to go to College – Ahh, but then you’d feel left out: you’d be the only one on your block with no crushing, unshakable student loans!
You would be the only one in your social group that wouldn’t be a government slave! What to talk about? Where’s the challenge of $70,000 in the hole earning minimum wage?
You may be loaded down with debt and no prospects of future employment to pay it back–but at least you have a proven dust collector (diploma) you’ll likely never use, four or five years of idleness and the shared experience of “misery loves company.”
Better to make like a lemming, stay with the crowd and be miserable than to strike out on your own, be different and financially secure.
“…the Bureau of Labor and Statistics points out that 75 percent of jobs created over the next decade won’t take a diploma.”
Ain’t that the truth!
The types of jobs called for in a third-world nation will be far different from what the average American has been used to over the last 75 years.

“The reality is: the notion that you go off to college, live in a dorm, go to some football games, graduate in four years and go on with your life is a myth.”
FROM TWO YEARS AGO
Why College is necessary but gets you nowhere – One more rung cut off the fairy tale of the American social mobility ladder. Almost half of recent college grads are working at jobs which do not require a college degree.
College has turned into just another wrong way of a very wicked world.
HAS the reader placed his faith, hopes and trust for the future in a diploma and what it might possibly mean?
THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
