How do I reinforce a biblical worldview for my children?

1. What is truth?

We teach them:

“I am the way, the truth and the life…” Jesus Christ

But the world believes:

“That’s true for you, but not for me!”


The relativistic view

The Relativistic View

The dance...where do I start. I uh danced with Dustin which was fun and then he kissed me, which was fun but I regret it. You see he has been telling me he doesnt want a girlfriend cause he is gonna move well...I get to school today and guess who has a girlfriend!!! That would be Dustin.

To my suprise there are many boys who would love my attention and right now Im giving it to all of them. Not in a bad way...I mean Im not dating any of them I just flirt a lot and show them that I can have fun when I wanna and Im not the nice girl all the time.


World proof your kids

My summer has been ok but let me tell you Im still struggling with a lot of things. I got kissed this weekend by this cute guy but Im not sure my mom would approve of me dating- once again I have chosen a "low life". I enjoyed it though...I havent been kissed in a while and it reminded me of how much I miss it. Ok so that probably makes me sound really bad but Corrie I have really changed. I like the new me but I dont think my family will...Im just more adventurous and out going but then again I have my dull and a lone moments too.

The evolutionist view

The Evolutionist View

How Old Are Dinosaurs?

The oldest dinosaur types are known from rocks in Argentina and Brazil and are about 230 million years old. The most primitive of these types, Eoraptor, was a small meat-eating dinosaur. Because Eoraptor's skeleton shows some advanced skeletal features, older dinosaurs may yet be found.

Top Home-School Texts Dismiss Darwin, Evolution

"I feel fairly strongly about this. These books are promulgating lies to kids," said Jerry Coyne, an ecology and evolution professor at the University of Chicago.

Virginia Tech biology professor Duncan Porter reviewed excerpts from the Apologia and Bob Jones biology textbooks, which are equivalent to ninth- and 10th-grade biology lessons. Porter said he would give the books an F.

"If this is the way kids are home-schooled then they're being shortchanged, both rationally and in terms of biology," Coyne said. He argued that the books may steer students away from careers in biology or the study of the history of the earth.

We teach them:

“So God created man in His own image…”

But the world believes:

“From the goo, to the zoo, to you!”


The materialist view

The Materialist View

. . . if I could be sure of the future I wanted, sure that I would get to spend forever with Edward. . . .Any future that made me like him—that made me immortal. (New Moon, 10)

Carlisle: “Edward’s with me up to a point. God and heaven exist . . . and so does hell. But he doesn’t believe there is an afterlife for our kind.” Carlisle’s voice was very soft; he stared out the big window over the sink, into the darkness. “You see, he thinks we’ve lost our souls.” (New Moon, 37)

“But you said thirty,” I whispered. The tears leaked over the edge. “What? You’re going to stay, but let me get all old anyway? Right.”

His eyes softened, while his mouth went hard. “That’s exactly what I’m going to do. What choice do I have? I cannot be without you, but I will not destroy your soul.”

. . . Was this fixation with keeping me human really about my soul, or was it because he wasn’t sure he wanted me around that long? (New Moon, 518)


Strategies10

Strategies

Tips

  • Do not stop at refuting false teachings, replace them with the truth.

  • The Bible is sufficient as the ultimate authority in all matters of faith and practice, so do not diminish it to a textbook. Rom. 15:4

  • So as not to violate a student’s conscience, when taking tests at school, pre-empt the questions with “Evolution teaches…”

  • Explain why materialism is so popular. Rom. 1:18-32 vs.25 “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator…”

  • Prepare a list of arguments/proofs supporting intelligent cause.


Strategies11

Strategies

Activity

  • Ask good questions. http://womenintheword.wordpress.com/2009/01/09/interview-with-a-witch/

    • Clarify – Ask her to define terms or re-state her objection.

    • Identify –Reveal a flaw in reasoning by examining her position.

    • Rectify – Does “Y” seem more reasonable to you?

jbnb31691: Why do you think to live, love, hurt, give birth, etc. are important? Are you here just to experience life? Do you have any eternal value?dragon_cooky: That, I am not sure of..  That is the big question isn’t it?  What will happen when I die?  I can believe with all my heart that what I have studied and learned is correct, but when I die, I may just find out that I was completly wrong..  I may learn that there is only one god, or no god..  I may even learn that there is nothing after death..  So I guess it all comes down to the F-word..  Faith..dragon_cooky: I suppose it’s all a matter of choice..  What do I choose to believe?  I guess that is what we all do..dragon_cooky: I think it’s the same for any belief system..  Athiests believe there is nothing, Christians believe there is heaven or hell, pagans believe in reincarnation..  No one forces us to believe any of this..  We choose to believe it..jbnb31691: What do you have faith in?dragon_cooky: Honestly?  This will sound incredibly smug..  I have faith in myself..  I have faith that I know what is right for myself..  I have faith in karma..

Strategies14

Strategies

Tips

  • Remind kids frequently of warnings against worshipping the creation rather than the creator.

  • Get your own financial house in order.

  • Check your criticism of your own body, house, clothes, etc.

  • Distinguish between the excellence that God requires from us and the success that the world expects from us.

  • Avoid becoming a stumbling block to your own children. If you value character more than temporal pleasure, your speech and actions will reflect it.

We teach them:

“Indeed, when Gentiles, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.”

But the world believes:

“There was no king in the land. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”

Strategies19

Strategies

Tips

  • Discuss social issues with your children, even if it makes you feel uncomfortable.

  • Courageous believers have blazed a trail before you; don’t hesitate to get help if you need it.

  • If you don’t tell your kids what you believe and why it is true, someone else will. And that someone else probably won’t share your beliefs. Get to them first.

  • We do not live by arbitrary standards, share with your children the scriptural basis for your beliefs.

  • In the public square do not use the Bible to make your case.
