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
This is our promise from Jesus that He would send us a comforter, guide, a teacher, and a power that would sustain us throughout our Christian walk. The accounts shown in scripture on the Day of Pentecost and Peter preaching to the Gentiles prove that speaking in tongues are the evidence of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. It is also a gift that is as important as love is to the church and to Christians in general.
In the Gospel of John, the Lord proclaims to his disciples that the Holy Spirit “abides with you and will be in you” (Jn. 14:17). These words provided comfort and assurance that the Holy Spirit would indwell them, and that they would not be alone. There is record of the Holy Spirit influencing and indwelling his people throughout the Old Testament. Pharaoh believed that Joseph had the Spirit of God in him because of the wisdom he possessed (Gen. 41:38).
Critique on Kingdom Education Summary Kingdom education is a process that begins with a child accepting Christ as their Lord and Savior and continues with the goal of that child reaching maturity in Christ. As such, evangelism and discipleship are part of a kingdom education that will train children to know God and have a biblical worldview. This worldview is taught through Bible stories, but is also incorporated into every subject and into educational methods that reflect a biblical philosophy. Ultimately, parents are responsible before God for their child; however, it is the role of the church and the school to support the parents in their God given responsibility. In Kingdom education, these three cords must work in harmony to evangelize, discipline and train each child to incorporate a biblical worldview into everything they do.
Christianity has grounded our lives in the living God as revealed through Jesus. This belief must be a choice people make as well as a gift we all receive within the Christian community. Christians must trust in and rely upon God as the source of everything in their lives. Faith is about believing in the trinity; God, Jesus the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit as three in one. Christians follow Jesus’ teachings and answer the call to be his disciples in the world.
The word is the gift of faith, professes freely by God, and faith is built and carried out through the Holy Spirit. The expansion of faith happens when studying takes place, the decision is yours to put belief into play. This is exactly why sacred Scripture and Traditions carried out by the Church are closely connected and very important in the growth of one’s faith. Scripture is the Word of God such as, The Old Testament and the New Testament. The word of God passed on through Liturgy, prayer, and teachings from the Apostles and their successors are known as Scared Traditions.
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.
Not everyone bless to be a counselor, but Dr. Crabb's biblical teaching in Christian counseling will lay out the foundational requirement to enable the ones called by God to be an effective counselor.

Introduction Worship is a topic that appears frequently in the Old and New Testament and that is still very relevant to believers today. Many Biblical authors write about worship and the various ways believers worship God in the Bible. Everything from the book of Psalm, where every line leads believers to praise God because of his attributes and his works of salvation, to the Gospels that cause believers to praise God because of the works and sacrifice of His Son, Jesus. The aim of this paper will seek to find out how worship in the book of Psalms shapes our theology and definition of worship, while also determining the primary purpose of worship, whether to praise God for who he is, or what he’s done for believers. After providing a definition of worship and the varied forms of worship in Scripture the attention will be given to answering the aim of this paper.
