I am committed to my Christian beliefs since I based my knowledge in the Bible. (Cosgrove, 2006) The Bible is a book where you find the guidance for all humans to live in harmony with their environment. This book also gives prophetic information of events that are happening and will happen. So too are the moral rules for human rights so at the same are not violated. It is a complete book in which you can find word, by word that give you life.
Why do you desire to teach or work at Kings Ridge Christian School To be able to align of my faith and my passion to teach in one welcoming environment is my ideal work description. Kings Ridge philosophy states the importance of the development of the student: academically, spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and ethically. I feel that my skills and my faith align with this philosophy. Kings Ridge will allow me to share my passion of Christ and personal health. To be able to strengthen my foundation with the help of a great community will be exciting each day.
The word of the Lord is the essence of our faith and our livelihood. Through Dei Verbum we discover that the sacred readings and writings are understood and made active in the Church, therefore making the Church an engine for fulfilling the words of God. Through the promulgations of Pope Paul VI, it is clear that the sacred tradition and the Sacred Scripture together, are taught through the authority of the Church so that each in its own way contribute effectively to the salvation of souls under the action of the one Holy Spirit. As we discuss the larger ecclesiological question, “what is the church?” we can take from Dei Verbum that it is a few things. The first is that it is an engine.
Worldview Assignment Part I: Weider & Gutierrez, (2011), state, a “Worldview” is broken down to three simple components; “a person’s philosophy of life, second, a framework a person brings to decision making and lastly, a filter or lens which a person uses to interpret life and the world around them”, (p.60). I agree with this statement however, the last part really brought home my understanding of the concept. As a Christian, I strive to approach all aspects of my life looking through the “lens” of scripture and my personal convictions, when making decisions. I attribute my successes’ in life because of my adherence to this principle. I learned long ago as a new Christian that if I leaned on my own understanding and trusted my “gut”, I would probably arrive at the wrong decision.
The biggest difference that defines the AACC code is their mission which is described to “… help achieve the primary goals of the AACC- to bring honor to Jesus Christ and his church, promote excellence in Christian counseling, and bring unity to Christian counselors” (AACC Code of Ethics, 2004.) The code was written with a biblical foundation which inspires all of the ethical guidelines. The AACC (2004) code began with 7 foundations outlining the base for their Professional Counselors to follow all being Christ centered. The ACA Code of Ethics focused more on being open to cultural differences. One example was found in their preamble “Association members recognize diversity and embrace a cross-cultural approach in support of the worth, dignity, potential, and uniqueness of people within their social and cultural contexts (ACA Code of Ethics, 2005.)
Explain what Christians mean when they say the Bible has authority? All Christians believe the Bible has a unique authority, The Word of God. The Bible carries God’s message & Gods teachings providing guidance and advice, giving a Christians a sort of Guidebook. The Word of God is also valuable to Christians because it provides hope for God existing and that there is an afterlife. 2.)
We need to reach out to the troubled youth. This can be done if we create a positive atmosphere within the community. We need to teach the community that with God all things are possible and that all our needs are met. “We need to love our neighbors as we love ourselves” Matt.22:39. As a result people will see and feel the love of God through our actions.. 18:20).
One cannot be a Christian without believing in the beliefs of the Bible but at the same time do what actions the Bible has deemed orthodox. The perfect example that I have come up with is Michael Vick and his federal dog fighting cases. Obviously Michael Vick’s actions are not what Christians find acceptable and will be punished by God by being
Naturalist do not believe in more than just matter, they look at things as if I cannot see it then it is not there. However, as a Christians, I believe in more and I know our God is out there helping us through our lives. Naturalist look at us as machines that all of our emotions and such are just reactions in our brains, but Christians believe that everything we do is the creation of God. Secular humanist and Christians are so different I use my religion to help stay in line. Secular humanist feel that religion is really a negative thing because it gives you rules to follow therefore you never really follow your deepest desires.
Think about, treat, and speak to others on a daily basis? When I speak to others I speak with love, God wants us to love one another and make it our most noticeable trait, to bring glory to the Lord, when speaking to others they must get the impression that I am a follower of Christ and that I live for Him. God is happiest when we allow ourselves to Love, follow his commands and spread His word. John
