Title Vii allows churches and religious organizations to discriminate on the basis of religion. Most Christian schools teach from a Christian worldview in all subjects. In order to accomplish this I believe the instructors should be grounded in Christian values, and live a lifestyle rooted in Christ’s instruction. The opportunity to educate our future generation along with sound biblical doctrine should not be taken lightly. This should be done by individuals that experience the love of Christ in their lives on a daily basis.
Personal Theory of Counseling Paper Liberty University Online COUN 507 Abstract It is important for the counselor to be knowledgeable of many various theoretical models as well as be able to incorporate theology, spirituality, and psychology into their counseling methods to successfully counsel their clients. In every situation God should be the center for all change. It is important for a client to have a positive outlook in life and God is the ultimate source for this to occur. This process may take various amounts of time depending on the degree of spirituality of the client and how they are responding to the Holy Spirit. The counselor's role is to give the client tools to aid them in their growth with God and act as a tool for God to use.
A Study of Godly Ethics The Principles of a Biblical Worldview The Bible establishes the guidelines of God's ethical boundaries for all Christ followers. On some issues, God's Word speaks explicitly; however, there is less clarity in other matters and more need for discernment. As Christians learn, accept, and live the reality of Christ, they move towards a life of godliness.1 Through this process, Christians can begin to discern more clearly and live out a biblical worldview.2 Christ followers should be characterized by truth.3 If they are to be characterize by truth, what truth is must be interpreted. In John 17:17, Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them by the truth, your word is truth.” God has expressed Himself through Scripture; His Word is true, reliable, eternal, and the sacred authority.4 The Bible is the very word of God and should be the starting point for all thinking.5 Jesus also said that He is the truth.6 Jesus exemplifies wisdom and knowledge.7 God loves His creation enough to tell them how to live and promises to give understanding to those who seek Him.8 The root of man's dilemma often comes from not seeking God or misinterpreting the nature of God's truth.9 “The reason so few people act like Christians is that they do not think like Christians.”10 How then does one begin to think like a Christian? Christianity should be seen as the outline for godly decision making and a strategy for daily living.11 The Word of God has the final jurisdiction and is pertinent for the choices that Christians must make, many of which have moral consequences.
