As you study history, you will quickly see that God has a perfect plan for everything. He has a plan for your life as well. That plan can be understood only if you first accept Jesus Christ as your Savior. Jesus Christ died on Calvary's cross for your sin. By repenting of your sin and by accepting through faith God's free gift of salvation, you can have eternal life. True happiness and success come only as you seek to become more like Jesus Christ and follow His plan for your life. The study of world history has additional meaning and value.
The study of world history profits a student in many ways. Such a study broadens the intellectual horizon by exposing the student to a past that goes all the way back to "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." World history transports that student through time, revealing to him a variety of cultures and civilizations and the development and expansion of ideas. In addition, the study of world history reveals many of the consequences of decisions made by men, leading to triumph or tragedy. During this academic journey the student also gains insights on related subjects, including religion, art, science, and other aspects of culture.
