Everyone has a worldview and a way they see life. Christian teachers should be willing to use their own biblical worldview to help the students in class develop a strong set of beliefs by integrating biblical truths into their lessons daily and encouraging their students to apply what they learn in class to not only their biblical worldview, but to their life. A worldview can be defined as a set of beliefs by which you live your life. This means that everything you say and do is defined by your worldview or set of beliefs. A biblical worldview is a God centered belief system, one where everything that you do is filtered through your belief in God and the Bible.
These are questions for many students of the Bible. How do I represent God and still reach the lost souls of our generation and at the same time feed the Believers of Christ so they won’t starve to death? Either way we must trust what we have learned to impact everyone who God has given to us to reach. Students of the Word must believe that God has given them a sermon to impact the lives of many. The main factor is we must learn to understand the basic principles of Expository, Topical and Textual preaching.
GOD’S WORD It is only through the Word that people can receive Jesus Christ into their hearts. Only the Bible contains the spiritual facts that make it possible for God to be revealed in readers, who then know and possess God. The more Christians read the Bible and pray accordingly, the more they come to know and possess Him. Once saved, believers need the Word for spiritual nourishment so they can grow and be perfected and equipped for God's work. The Apostle Paul wrote of the Word's central role in a letter to his young coworker in 2 Timothy (3:15-17) “… and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
One of the major themes is teaching the children the basic rules of Puritan religion like how to treat other people in the community. The main point of The New England Primer is to teach the children the Puritan religion and how to behave. For example, The Primer outlines for the children that they must respect God’s sanctuary, obey the people who are superior to you, and pray to God for their enemies. Since the children have to respect various people in the community, another theme is respect and love. Respect is a major theme in the New England Primer because children need to learn to respect everyone in their community, even their enemies.
Teachers must create lessons to inspire their students to think and make decisions based on God 's principles. The school should foster an environment where the students realize what Christ has done for them and give them the desire to see others come to know Christ as their Savior. A good way to make this happen is to create diverse learning opportunities where students can learn about other cultures and environments where missionaries are working to reach people for the Lord. Basically, the purpose of Christian education is directing the process of human development toward godliness of character and action. Curriculum of public schools cannot use God 's Word as its standard for truth.
The Bible is God’s teaching manual that He has provided to us to learn about Him and His ways, so that people will believe on Christ Jesus as the Savior of the world. Application of the study of God and Christian education is then obedience to the Word by
Scripture offer direction to lay helpers “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you” (John 14:26). Part I: Goal of Christian Counseling Crabb’s (1977) model of Christian counseling exemplifies that the ultimate goal is to teach and guide people in harmony with finding their spiritual realm and helping them achieve faith-based maturity.

By combining my Christian experience and philosophy of ... ... middle of paper ... ... learned at CBU, in addition to ways such as challenging students to grow in their faith while learning. For example, I would suggest that they use ideas and scriptures that they learned in Bible study or in church within the past weeks of assignments. This will help to keep students engaged with the material and faith based concepts that they have learned within the weeks. Also, I think promoting attending CBU or church based activities for assignments can help students learn course material as well as grow in their faith. I believe that faith integration is an important component that CBU offers that many other universities do not.
The new path led to a transition from a secular K-12 setting to Christian higher education; yet, still within the context of supporting a diverse student population. My purpose became preparing and teaching ministerial leadership in a multi-ethnic church, “bridging the gap leadership.” In fulfilling God’s will and direction, I was led to me apply to graduate school. While I hold a strong credo concerning access to education for all learners, I feel as fervent regarding continual development for educators. One’s pursuit of content knowledge and pedagogy assist in maintaining a fresh perspective and development as a professional. More importantly, I am a teaching pastor and have the additional responsibility of serving and shepherding students.
God has ordained that Revelation is transmitted to all people, to all generations, and to remain intact forever. This mandate is performed by the Church through evangelization. However, the desire to proclaim Jesus Christ, to “evangelize” and to lead others to the “fiat” of faith in Jesus Christ, which at the same time arouses the need to know this faith better, does not come from human inspiration. It springs from the loving knowledge that Jesus Christ has of us. In this way, we need to understand that the primary and essential object of catechesis and religious education is the mystery of Christ.
