Old School=Good School

“Old school is the good school.” I have spoken this to my children a billion times to instill an appreciation for that which is classic, retro and has “staying power.” Classic black and white movies, 1960s muscle cars, not having sex before marriage…these are a few examples. In an age where technologies, theologies and ideologies are constantly shifting, I want my kids to long for the absolutes, the unchanging, the things that remain after all other things have been shaken.

This is most clearly stated in Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God…” All of creation began with God, the Ancient of Days, the One who has no beginning and no end. My children know Him. No new gods needed. “Old school is the good school.”
