A Statement on Original Sin - ... That is, if God holds us accountable for the sin Adam committed, then the exercise of our own free will must, in God’s sight, be of little or no consequence. This leads to the Augustinian belief in predestination — that who is saved and who is lost is determined entirely by God’s sovereign election, and no exercise of free will on our part plays a determining role in God’s decision. Also, since our free will has been made of no effect, there is no hope that we, outside God’s election, could ever overcome sin....   [tags: Theology] 581 words

I'm sure that there have always been innovative teachers, but lecture and paperwork (or slate board work) were at one time the norm. In some classes it still is. However, the fact that we have so many stu- dies concerning the development of learning skill, such as the four stages that Piaget ident- ified, and so many theories on the best way to teach a child, such as Constructivism versus Behavorialism, indicates that many educators have realized there have to be better ways, than exclusive lecture and paperwork, to evoke learning....   [tags: Philosophy of Education Teaching Essays] 1326 words
