Darrel Furgason wrote an excellent article for the Association of Christian Schools International on the importance of worldview training.  As you look throught the current events of the days, try to find articles that deal with these themes. Furgason wrote…

“An excellent curriculum should therefore teach students how to implement kingdom ways for every area of life through their life’s vocation and calling. Here are just a few kingdom principles that can be applied immediately in many areas of our society today:

• Justice is better than injustice (politics).

• Righteousness is better than crime (law).

• Love is better than hate (sociology).

• Health is better than sickness (economics).

• Order is better than anarchy (politics).

• Peace is better than war (international

relations).

• Security is better than danger or terror

 

(politics).

  • Freedom is better than slavery (sociology,
psychology).

• Sufficiency is better than poverty

(economics).

• Truth is better than lies (education).

• Progress is better than failure (economic

development).

• Accountability is better than corruption

(economics).

• Democracy is better than totalitarianism

E Harmony Shakedown a disgrace December 17, 2008

E Harmony has surrendered! In the latest of a series of shakedowns against those who believe marriage is between a man and a woman, E harmony has agreed to create a separate same sex dating service to settle a New Jersey Lawsuit.

Theodore Olson, attorney for eHarmony, said the company decided to settle rather than deal with an unknown jury pool.

“Even though we believed that the complaint resulted from an unfair characterization of our business, we ultimately decided it was best to settle this case with the attorney general since litigation outcomes can be unpredictable,” Olson said in a statement.

The site’s owner, Neil Clark Warren, an evangelical, had said publicly he did not want to introduce a same-sex site because he was not familiar enough with same-sex relationships. eHarmony became popular with the public because of its emphasis on personality traits.

“It’s basically the power of the government being used to force people across the country to accept beliefs that they know are not moral,” said Kelly Shackelford, president of the Free Market Foundation and chief counsel of the Liberty Legal Institute. “It’s an attack on freedom, and people better get ready to fight.”

Key Biblical worldview training questions:

1. Do you agree or disagree with the settlement?

2. If you were the founder of E-harmony, would have settled?

3. What is the biblical position for not allowing same sex dating services on this type of website?

Even murders have a right to vote? October 23, 2008

One of the clearest biblical principles in the Bible is that sin has consequences. Apparently in Vermont, that consequence does not include losing the right to vote. Except for the unlucky prison inmates convicted of election fraud, all prisoners on Vermont are given the right to cast a vote in elections, even those convicted of murder.

“Vermont has taken the position the more we can get folks in prison involved in the community in a responsible way, the better their chances of reintroducing them to the civilian world in a responsible way,” Secretary of State Deb Markowitz said.

Biblical worldview Questions

1. What should be our attitude regarding those in prison? How is it supported by the Bible?

2. Should inmates be given the right to vote?

3. Should the focus in prison be more on punishment or more on rehabilitation? Explain.
