Christian Education is the process of nurturing a person to be the best at what God wants them to be.

MY KING

4 an ATHIEST

JESUS>RELIGION

"For Christians the vision of worldly power is not a calling, but a distraction. It
"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts."
Harry S. Truman
is a temptation Jesus rejected, not because it was dangerous, but because it was trivial compared with his mission. C. S. Lewis had it right: 'If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. the Apostles themselves, who set on foot the conversion of the Roman Empire, the great men who built up the Middle Ages, the English evangelicals who abolished the slave trade, all left their mark on earth, precisely because their minds were occupied with Heaven. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this one. Aim at Heaven and you will get earth 'thrown in.' Aim at earth and you will get neither.' Our eyes should be lifted skyward--toward the company of heaven. The time has come for believers to focus on the next world, not just the next election cycle." Cal Thomas, Newsweek, March 29, 1999, Page 60.

"One measure of the effectiveness of any teacher is the rate at which he makes himself unnecessary to his pupils" Dr. C.B. Eavey
"C. S. Lewis wrote in his essay 'The Weight of Glory,' about what he called 'the overwhelming possibilities' of eternity, he concluded: 'There are no ordinary people. you have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations--these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry , snub, and exploit--immortal horrors or everlasting splendours" C. S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory, (San Francisco: Harper 2001) as quoted in A Life God Rewards, by Bruce Wilkinson ( Sisters, Oregon: Multnomah 2002).

(2.1)The mud ball floated in darkness. God created day, night and time, the first day. The Second day he extracted the water from the mud and made dirt and separated the sea from the land and said it was good. The next day he formed a garden as large as the World itself. On the fourth day he created the Sun, Moon and galaxies of stars as part of the Glory of God [Romans 1:20]. We see the Sun as necessary for light, but God is so far above our thoughts [Isaiah 55:8-9] He doesn't need light holders...He is Light! [1 John 1:5] On the Sixth Day He made a man from the mud but withheld his approval until woman walked on His sod at dusk. On the seventh day God rested from creating the World and the universe around it. Can you imagine the satisfaction on his face as he sipped tea from the banisters of heaven and viewed his creation?


I will take a verb over a noun anytime--
Wm. Paul Young


God's University started not long after this with God walking in the garden talking with them every evening. After the fall God came showing Adam and Eve how to make clothes, probably how to start a fire for sacrifices.

God did not stay in heaven, but evening-by-evening God walked with his toes in the same grass with man and woman [with no bellybuttons. Which came first, the chicken or egg? Man and woman came before the baby. The chicken and rooster came before the egg.] Can you imagine what God talked to them about? And then Man made a choice to do what he wanted to do and disobey God. Man ate fruit God asked him not to eat. Adam and Eve chose double-breasted leaves suit over God's clothing. God's holiness cannot live with sin and so God extracted himself from sinful man's presence, but before he left God continued to teach Adam and Eve in his classroom. He showed them how to make wool suits (clothes from sheep) and to make a pleasing sacrifice and I imagine a hundred things your parents taught you. Then God walked slowly back into the heavens, God's holy nature required separation from sin. How many times did Adam and Eve feel God left them, when they not God, did the leaving?

I AM -- Jesus

We meet God with his sleeves rolled up working. In the Beginning God created. But part of His time, if that is the right word for an eternal God was to talk and teach Adam and Eve. This hasn't changed over the millennia. The God of Eternity in his good time walked into time and gave us his Word in written record we normally call The Book or Bible.

God talked eyeball to eyeball with Adam. God chiseled the commands on rock tablets. Isaiah probably wrote with stylus on skins and rolled His words just like the Dead Sea Scrolls. Paul may have written in codex (book) format. But today we can see God enjoying His Word moving into the lives and hearts of men and women. 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21.

"Education is what is left after what we have learned is forgotten." B.F. Skinner
God not only thinks, and writes, but God acts. We meet God creating and God realized his love, men and women had no hope. It would be like having children guaranteed to die of an illness you could prevent. You most certainly would do anything including giving your life to make your children's lives long and successful. And that is exactly what God did: he sent his Son to die so we could live with him forever. John 3:14-17.

God is a verb -- Buckminister Fuller


We evaluate God by who we are. If we had billions of dollars we would buy things for ourselves and those we love. But God has more money and resources than this, and what God wanted was to love you and me and for us to love him in return. We call this worship. God loves us so much he gave his Son, Jesus. This short comparison of the nature of God and man shows how self-centric, selfish and sinful we are.

GOOD NEWS!

Again, God walked in the dirt, but this time as a man [Matthew 1:23]. He hurt just like other men hurt. He felt every pain and temptation just like every other person. [1 Corinthians 10:13] He felt the humiliation of the scorn and the pain of the cross just like other men would feel pain. Why did he do this, because God is Love. God doesn't just love, God is Love! [1 John 4:16] God can do anything he wants, and he wants to love us. He wanted to save us from the "illness" of sin that will kill us. God wants to walk and talk with us for eternity. In the Garden God walked in the evening, in Eternity we will be with him all the time forever.

Love is a verb - Toby Mack



Romans 1: 20 NASB, "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse." God's Universe then is God's University.

"If I tell you only part of the evidence and you believe it, you have been indoctrinated.
If I tell you all the evidence and you make a decision, then you have been taught." Mike Riddle
God created a cosmos that even the rocks can cry out. [Luke 19:40, "And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."] As our eyes view the heavens, flowers and the body of animal and man they demand a creator. [Psalm 19:1, "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork."]

‎"To fall in love with God is the greatest romance; to seek Him, the greatest adventure; to find Him, the greatest human achievement."~St. Augustine

Christian Education is the process of showing everything that exists from the reason the Atom holds together to life to eternal life, these are topics that fit in Christian Education. They are things that God may have discussed with Adam and Eve in the Garden. [Colossians 1:16-17, "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist."]


Occasionally, we imagine heaven as place where we will be sitting bored, harping along on a cloud. I don't think so. I believe God is so majestic and mighty in power; God will need an eternity to share the half of his infinity to us finite beings just like he began in the Garden to Adam and Eve. God's University then is Earth and his creation. His students are each person in humanity. Some fail and some pass. Those that choose to accept his greatness, His gift of Eternal life [Romans 6:23] and accept his grace [Ephesians 2:8-9] will live with him forever. These students will pass. Not because we deserve it, but because God is working in us and on us. God wants us to pass his University course. [Luke 19:10]

Love then is a verb. In the beginning God created. For God so loved the world he sent his Son. He asks us to Go into all the world and preach and teach. Can't you see God grinning and helping those that love him?

As I read my Bible I find the premium is on doing, not knowledge. If knowledge was the end in itself, God could have placed ten questions at the end of each chapter and if you didn't answer seven correct, a trap door could propel you to the depths. Now you need to know, to do, but organized activity is where God puts the premium. I believe all knowledge in the church and Christian school and all other activities of Christian Education should leave us needing to do, not just sit in the pew satisfied we have learned our nugget of truth for the week.


The last thing Jesus said on this Earth is "Go into all the world teaching and preaching" Matthew 28:19-20. To this point Paul writes in his letters, "So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ." Romans 10:17

"For He says, `At the acceptable time I listened to you, And on the day of salvation I helped you; behold, now is 'the acceptable time, 'behold, now is 'the day of salvation--" 2 Corinthians 6:2

And James states it this way, "Be ye doers of the Word and not just hearers, deceiving yourself." James 1:22

" Everyone is a genius. But if you Judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its entire life believing that it is stupid." -- Albert Einstein


"About this time I met with a track written by an atheist. It read as follows: "Did I firmly believe, as millions say they do, that the knowledge and practice of religion in this life influences destiny in another, religion would mean to me everything. I would cast away earthly enjoyments as dross, earthly cares as follies, and earthly thoughts and feelings as vanity. Religion would be my first waking thought, and my last image before sleep sank me into unconsciousness. I should labour in its cause alone. I would take thought for the morrow of Eternity alone. I would esteem one soul gained for heaven worth a life of suffering. Earthly consequences should never stay my hand nor seal my lips. Earth, its joys and its grief's, would occupy no moment of my thoughts. I would strive to look upon Eternity alone, and on the Immortal Souls around me, soon to be everlastingly happy or everlastingly miserable. I would go forth to the world and preach to it in season and out of season and my text would be, "WHAT SHALL IT PROFIT A MAN IF HE GAIN THE WHOLE WORLD AND LOOSE HIS SOUL?" C.T. Studd, Autobiography, pg 40.

Will you go and share the Good News of Jesus with others on your block and world?

"Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us? "Then I said, "Here am I, Send me!" Isaiah 6:8

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. James 1:22(NAS95)

Salvation is free, but discipleship will cost you your life.---Dietrich Bonhoefier.

When I walked to the front door of my home, I was dismayed that only one key opened the door: I thought all keys would open any door. When I needed to enter heaven, I was dismayed that only one key, belief in Jesus as director of my life, opened the door.--d'lyles

A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

A saint is never consciously a saint - a saint is consciously dependent on God.-Oswald Chambers

Humiliation is something that God's Grace allows us as a Precious Gift that brings us close to His own Sacred Heart to discover and see who God really IS. -- Abba Anthony the repentant

You can't boast in Jesus while you're preoccupied with yourself---ODB (Estelle Stewart)

"Correlation does not equal causation"!

Confession is agreeing with God about our sin. -- copied

True peace is not the absence of war; it is the presence of God--Loveless.

A wise Rabbi once said, "We don't see things as they are, we see things as we are."

In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act. ~ George Orwell

If you have been united with Christ (ie: married), then communion is like date night. - Luke Simmons

So many people are miserable because they think happiness come from self-gratification. It actually comes from self-sacrifice.-- Rick Warren

It's in solitude that we understand we are never alone.-- Dallas Willard

"Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." - William Faulkner

"...all work is honorable. Always do your best because someone is watching."-- Colin Powell

Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility. -- Saint Augustine

Reading makes a full man; conference a ready man; writing an exact man -- Francis Bacon born 1561.

A good pun is its own reword. -- Donna Runion

God loves impossible. Impossible is when God gets to show up and show off.- Liz Curtis Higgs

The problem is, government has no common sense.--d'lyles

"Being a Christian is less about cautiously avoiding sin than about courageously and actively doing God's will." —Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Worship is the quickening of conscience by God’s holiness;
the nourishment of mind with His truth;
the purifying of imagination by His beauty;
the opening of the heart to His love;
the surrender of the will to His purpose;
and all of this gathered up in adoration
-- Archbishop William Temple

My life is but a weaving, between my God and me;
I do not chose the colors, He worketh steadily.
Oft times He weaveth sorrow, and I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper, and I the under side.
Not til the loom is silent, and shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why
The dark threads are as needful in the skillful Weaver's hand
As threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.--Anonymous

The remarkable thing about fearing God is that when you fear God you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God you fear everything else. -Oswald Chambers

"The Christian who is truly poor in spirit goes to worship on Sunday morning singing 'I am poor but I brought myself the best I could; I am Yours, I am Yours.'" -Brennan Manning
"There are 2 things you will deal with all your life: money and relationships...and ONE of them will make you rich."--Pastor Dick Foth (From Becky Carey's FB page)


Love is not a noun to be defined... But a verb to be acted upon.--Scott and Kelli

A pat on the back is only a few inches higher than a kick in the pants. -- Office Truisms

Strong and bitter words indicate a weak cause.-- Chinese cookie

If I don’t take time to pray, there will be no real communication in our relationship. If I don’t take time to read God’s word, I won’t hear His loving call. And if I don’t make time to be alone with Jesus, our relationship will suffer, because time is integral to any relationship.--Joanna Weaver

We remember: 10% of what we hear, 30% of what we read, 50% of what we see, 90% of what we do

Every pastor chooses how he will lead a flock: as a risk taker, as a caretaker, or as an undertaker while it slowly dies.-- Rick Warren

Son, whatever weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes away your relish for spiritual things; in short, if anything increases the authority and power of the flesh over the Spirit, then that to you becomes sin, however good it is in itself." -- Susanna Wesley

Sin makes you stupid -- Jackson Cramer

The unexamined life is not worth living for a human being. -- Socrates.

A well-known speaker started off his seminar holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this." He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, "Who still wants it...?" Still the hands were up in the air. "Well," he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?" Still the hands went into the air. "My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE --Copied

I have met no people who fully disbelieved in Hell and also had a living and life-giving belief in Heaven. --C.S. Lewis

Human dignity cannot survive in a society that insists that a baby inside the womb has no right to live while that same baby, just seconds later, is a murder victim. Respect for human life cannot endure when a baby inside the womb is just a fetus, but when moved only a few centimeters is a full citizen.
-Dr. Richard Albert Mohler, Jr. is an American theologian and the ninth president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else. - Margaret Mead

A.W. Tozer's Rules of Self-Discovery:
1. What we want most?
2. What we think about most?
3. How we use our money?
4. What we do with our leisure time?
5. The company we enjoy?
6. Whom and what we enjoy?
7. What we laugh at?

I strongly suspect that if we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those little prayers were destined to affect, and all the consequences of those prayers down through the centuries, we would be so paralyzed with awe at the power of prayer that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.
--Peter Kreeft

You can do more than pray after you have prayed, but you cannot do more than pray until you have prayed.--Dr. A.J. Gordon

When you pray, if you get bored and your mind wanders...it is a gift from God. God is telling you what is more important than Him. Notice what you think about, these are more important than God and therefore your idols. -- Brandon Pasion

See, then, how God educates your soul through prayer, nurturing your desires for truth, love and beauty, and teaching you to discover them in himself. Play truant from the school of prayer and you will never learn these things. You will be a spiritual ignoramus, shallow and undeveloped and unable to understand the things of the Spirit. What Happens When I Pray.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts."
The Innocents Abroad (1869) Mark Twain

The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.- J.R.R. Tolkien

Let nothing trouble you,
Let nothing frighten you,

Patience
Obtains everything.
Who possesses God
Wants for nothing.

Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter.-- Francis Chan

Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles.–Confucius

I pray you so live, that when you stand over your child's dead body, you may never hear a voice coming up from that clay, "Father, your negligence was my destruction. Mother, your prayerlessness was the instrument of my damnation.--Spurgeon "God's work done in God's way, the devil can't destroy!" -- Myron Cederholm

Forgiveness has more to do with your tongue than your head or heart. If you’re still talking about it, you haven’t forgiven. --Mark Gungor


"ANYWAY"
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world your best anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength--Corrie Ten Boom

Worry is like paying on a debt that may never come due.-- Will Rogers

We can, whenever and wherever we choose, successfully teach all children whose schooling is of interest to us. We already know more than we need to do that. Whether or not we do it must finally depend on how we feel about the fact that we haven't so far. ~Ron Edmonds

Don's Axiom reads, "Every organization starts with vision and zeal, moves to complacency and ends killing itself with rules and regulations--always with the best intentions."

"Loosen up. Don`t you have some people to hug, rocks to skip, or lips to kiss? It`s time to retire...not from your job, just retire from your attitude. Honestly, has complaining ever made the day better? Has grumbling ever paid the bills? Has worrying about tomorrow ever changed it? Let someone else run the world for a while."~Pat Ahrens

Mr. Scott died this weekend. One of my best memories in life occurred with his son Mike and daughter-in-law Laura. His last words after saying good-bye to his family around his bed was, "Well it is now just you and me Lord Jesus." Suddenly, the activity of life became unimportant. I have not been able to break the spell of these simple words. Life is after all about what happens after the last breath.

We are what we repetedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit -- Aristotle

"So we find that the three possible solutions of the great problem of increasing human energy are answered by the three words: food, peace, work. Many a year I have thought and pondered, lost myself in speculations and theories, considering man as a mass moved by a force, viewing his inexplicable movement in the light of a mechanical one, and applying the simple principles of mechanics to the analysis of the same until I arrived at these solutions, only to realize that they were taught to me in my early childhood. These three words sound the key-notes of the Christian religion. Their scientific meaning and purpose now clear to me: food to increase the mass, peace to diminish the retarding force, and work to increase the force accelerating human movement. These are the only three solutions which are possible of that great problem, and all of them have one object, one end, namely, to increase human energy. When we recognize this, we cannot help wondering how profoundly wise and scientific and how immensely practical the Christian religion is, and in what a marked contrast it stands in this respect to other religions. It is unmistakably the result of practical experiment and scientific observation which have extended through the ages, while other religions seem to be the outcome of merely abstract reasoning. Work, untiring effort, useful and accumulative, with periods of rest and recuperation aiming at higher efficiency, is its chief and ever-recurring command. Thus we are inspired both by Christianity and Science to do our utmost toward increasing the performance of mankind. This most important of human problems I shall now specifically consider." --Nikola Tesla

"When churches approach ministry with a business mentality, there are at least four tragic results:

1. The Gospel Becomes a Product
2. People Become Consumers
3. Appeal Becomes the Priority
4. Numbers Become the Measurement "

Racism is an insult to God.--Pastor Rick Warren

How to really love a child -- Be there. Say yes as often as you can. Let them bang on pots and pans. If they're crabby put them in water. Read books out loud with joy. Go find elephants and kiss them. Encourage silly. Giggle a lot. Remember how really small they are. Search out the positive. Keep the gleam in your eye. Go see a movie in your pajamas. Teach feelings. Realize how important it is to be a child. Plan to build a rocket ship. Stop yelling. Invent pleasures together. Surprise them. Express your love, a lot. Children are miraculous! -- copied from Facebook.
