The Development of a Godly Character c. Vision d. Passion e. How we cooperate with God to fulfill his leadership plans for our live Conclusion My Theology of leadership The Christian Leader: According to Henry Blackaby, to prospective Christian leaders: “If you are a man of little integrity or questionable character, do not expect God to reveal much of himself to you or to use you significantly for his kingdom.” I believe that Leadership in healthy growing churches requires deep spiritual commitment. The first priority of a Christian leader is a close personal relationship with God. Leaders must protect their own spiritual walk with God, which is the foundation of their leadership (Acts 4:1-3). A Christian Leader can help others by sharing something of their own spiritual walk by being actively involved in pastoral ministry and personal evangelism and by setting an example in giving. Personal qualities for leadership are deeply embodied in the New Testament, e.g,( 1Timothy 3).
Many will not understand that a leader like this can be effective at remaining at level that is needed to remain competitive in the workforce. It might be looked upon as a comingling of religion in the workplace, one of the taboo topics that that are just not discussed or even brought in. Does the Steward leader need to make others around him or her aware that they are the follower of the higher being? A steward leader is someone who is given the resources to preserve, manage, and grow according to the one that has entrusted those resources. Here the manager or the one who gave of the resources is God.
Dr. Anderson displays a strong foundation of counseling through truth and having a relationship with Christ. Other web based articles were used to support the theory of Anderson’s book. Although the web based articles other different avenues of Christian counseling all of the sources used share a common root, how to show others how to overcome their problems to become healthy well adjusted individuals by using biblical concepts. Christian Counseling to the Spiritually Oppressed Discipleship is receiving instruction from a religious leader and being a follower who has learned to believe in the truth of the doctrine of his teacher. Discipleship in today’s world can be in the form of a Christian counseling.
The Holy Spirit is important in causing the change and the Word of God is the source of helping the client to become Christ -like. According to Adams (1986), this change must be toward God and must be “from the heart outward” (p. 7). If not, then the change is just superficial and it will eventually lead the client further astray. The very backbone of his counseling is 2 Timothy 3:16, which states: ," But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work"(NIV, 2010).
James speaks against these in his teaching. He exhorts them to remain true to the teachings and practices of the faith. James’ teachings are often compared to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, which would be logical due to him being brought up in the same environment as Jesus. The book of James is a protest against hypocrisy. Some have criticized James in that they thought he was teaching that salvation was by works alone, but in reality he is complementing Paul’s teaching of salvation by faith.
In detail we will discuss the relationship between inspiration and inerrancy. And then, before concluding this paper we will discuss how the answers to these questions provide structure to how we as Christians should live our lives. To a Christian who has accepted God as their personal Lord and Savior the Bible has authority. The same should not be said for someone who hasn’t made that confession. As a Christian we have accepted that the Bible contains the true Word of God written by apostles who received divine inspiration to guide the recorded works.
Christian Education is a part of God’s purpose to put everything in Creation under the feet of Christ; it serves as part of His purpose to subdue people from all nations to the glory of God. I also think a Christian Education is a better education, because it feed the soul as well as the mind. It addresses the whole human being; it involves the body, sprit and the mind. One important goal of Christian Education is to teach the student to reason biblically. If each adult person or the parents of younger student took it upon themselves to be more Christ-like and build their foundation of education to glorify God, they would choose the Christian Education over the Public Education, which is controlled by the state.

Ken Hemphill says that “a worldview, whether Christian or secular, is the unifying perspective from which we organize our thinking about life, death, art, science, faith, learning, work, money, values, and morals”. Biblical/Christian Worldview II. Part Two: a. Origin: The Biblical/Christian worldview beings with God who can be known through His creation of revelation to humankind. It is important to define the term we are using.
Each one of us is called by God and the basis of that calling is set out in Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” We can see clearly from Matthew 28:19 that each of us who have been born again, water baptised and filled with the Holy Spirit have a direct and unmistakable calling from God to serve Him in ministry. The question is not whether we have a calling but what does the outworking of that calling look like in our lives? We have the logos Word of God for us as stated in Matthew 28:19 but the logos with out the revealed Rhema Word of God will have no power in our lives. So how do we hear this Rhema Word? 1) A supernatural encounter - Saul of Tarsus was a zealous man who thought he was doing the will of God by persecuting this sect called “The Way” but God intervened and Saul had a supernatural encounter with God on that Damascus road.
