The immorality of college debt

Several years ago, I was on the phone with a college finance office discussing what I believed to be overcharges on my son's student loan. Of course, through the whole tangled web of this grant, and that loan, and whatever, it was like unraveling a ton of coat hangers dumped in a pile. By and large, even with a football scholarship and academic scholarships, my son will have over $80,000 in debt to start his professional life. I told the finance person that I believed it was immoral what these colleges and universities were doing to this generation. You can see why neo communist Bernie Sanders (D-VT) and other politicians are saying they would forgive college loans if elected. It's down-right vote buying.
Sanders and others are going after the millennial generation vote by saying that they will cancel college debt. In fact, they have introduced legislation to do just that, and provide free tuition at public colleges and universities. AP reports, "Sanders vowed at a Monday news conference that his plan "completely eliminates student debt in this country and the absurdity of sentencing an entire generation, the millennial generation, to a lifetime of debt for the crime of doing the right thing. And that is going out and getting a higher education." He appeared alongside the proposal's House sponsors, Reps. Ilhan Omar, (D-MN), Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), with American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten in attendance." No mention that Sanders' "plan" will never be implemented. It's just his plan to get votes.
These neo communists know that their legislation has zero chance of passage. They also know that by saying that if elected they will cancel college debt and provide free tuition is an impossible lie. But it doesn't matter, millions of millennials will believe them and vote for them. The question of who is going to pay for this would come up. And the answer will likely be that we owe it to our children. In reality, what we owe to our children is to clean up the entire mess of the liberal education system, which propagates immorality, irresponsibility, and socialist agendas, and perpetuates the dumbing down of our children. Universities and colleges are so bloated with political nonsense, teachers that can't hold a real job, and nonessential overhead that higher education is an unaffordable bad value.
What happens if ever there is free tuition? What happens if college debt is cancelled? It just cheapens education and starts the debt cycle over again. What is needed is real reform. Removing the fat from college budgets, which would include the political agenda, a whole bunch of unnecessary student services and fees, and the inflated administration budget, including salaries of the overstuffed pontificators who are ruining generations of Americans. But that won't happen because it would address the root of the problem: Ending socialist brainwashing paid for by either students, their parents, or the general public. Colossians 2:8 says, " Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." And therein is the immorality of college debt.

Feeding a community of children

By Pastor William Agbeti

As early as 8am one Sunday morning not long ago, they started pouring in. Two hundred and sixteen children, forty eight parents and a handful of the disabled, coming from various poor homes and communities, eagerly looking forward to a good, free meal.
The Daily Jot supported ministry in Ghana feeds, clothes and provides clean water for hundreds of children

The atmosphere was electrifying and heartrending - an entire community of children and parents showing up for a free meal.

Meals were served to the satisfaction of all. All had soda to drink and water to quench their thirsts.

Everyone participated in some sort of games and danced to popular local music. Joy, laughter, merry making and the spirit of love hung heavily in the air. 
This was heaven to many.

Then what we always dread at our feeding functions happened. It was time to say good bye and depart. A surprise announcement was made, that all the children and their parents, including the disabled, would be given free food to take home! 

They were asked to line up for the extra food. Suddenly there was a stampede. Children and adults started fighting for first place in the queue to receive their free meals. 

Tears rolled down the cheeks of volunteers, as they served in total silence.
