Response to Kyle

Posted on April 28th, 2008 · Posted in Apologetics, Culture, Worldview

Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel        who alone does marvelous deeds. Psalm 72:18 No offense intended to the author of this blog entry, or for the one who asked the initial question, but, if Christians are so dead set against bullying, harassment, etc., then why do you constantly promote it towards GLBT kids? If you are so dead set against bullying, harassment, etc., against people per se, then why don’t you come out against those who are doing the bullying, etc…, instead of.. read more

A Question re: The National Day of Silence

Posted on April 11th, 2008 · Posted in Culture, Teenagers, Worldview

Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? II Corinthians 6:14 Caleb Land posted this comment with regard to a question that he had that had not been directly addressed in the blog. Thank you, Caleb, for posting this question! I also encourage others of you to comment about issues that have not been directly addressed in the blog, but that you would like to see addressed.

Hear, O  Israel: the LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD  your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. — Deuteronomy 6:4-6 And now, O Israel, what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul,.. read more

Adultery: 81 % / Premarital Sex: 45%

Posted on April 4th, 2008 · Posted in Culture, Worldview

“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” Hebrew 13:4 In the last post we looked at a USA Today article regarding the way that Americans view sin. The article contained a survey listing various activities and the percentage of Americans who thought these activities were sin. Eighty-one percent of those surveyed thought that adultery was a sin. However, only 45% of this same group thought that having sex before marriage was a sin. This.. read more

The Fear of the Lord and Worldview

Posted on March 28th, 2008 · Posted in Fear of the Lord, Parenting, Worldview

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge,   but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Proverbs 1:7 The cornerstone of a biblical worldview must be the fear of the Lord. Understanding how this world really works is impossible without the fear of the Lord. Recall the definition of worldview from the last post: the overall perspective from which one sees and interprets the world. If your children interpret their world without the fear of the Lord they will never be wise. Practically speaking, this means that the observations.. read more

Using the Psalms to Build Worldview

Posted on March 27th, 2008 · Posted in Parenting, Worldview

Many are asking, "Who can show us any good?"   Let the light of your face shine upon us, O LORD. You have filled my heart with greater joy   than when their grain and new wine abound. Psalm 4:6&7 Several recent posts addressed the concept of worldview and children. The American Heritage Dictionary defines worldview this way: The overall perspective from which one sees and interprets the world. Do you see why teaching about worldview is an important part of parenting? Your children are born interpreting their world from.. read more

toddlers and worldview part 2

Posted on March 5th, 2008 · Posted in Parenting, Toddlers, Worldview

Doing what comes naturally 17So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.  Eph. 4:17-19 This passage.. read more

toddlers and worldview

Posted on March 3rd, 2008 · Posted in Parenting, Toddlers, Worldview

Toddlers and worldview are not concepts that appear to be compatible at first glance. The image of a 3–year-old sitting down at a computer to type a paper on worldview evokes humor, not reality. However, a toddler does have a worldview. It may be limited, but it is a worldview nonetheless. This worldview is expressed in statements like  – I’m thirsty, he took my toy, I want a cookie, I’m tired, I’m hungry, I don’t want to. Do you see a pattern here? A toddler’s worldview tends to begin and.. read more
