There are three reasons to study Latin:
1. To honor God
2. To love neighbor
3. To grow in wisdom and virtue
If the study of Latin is not tied to these three things, I don’t know of any other way to justify it. My understanding is that for the Christian everything, be it never so practical, must meet this “litmus test.”
The Christian has high standards. Let’s see if we can meet them without falling into self-justification.
