“Every story is informed by a worldview” (Brian Godawa). A worldview is basically how one sees the world based on their own perceptive. However, a biblical worldview is not based upon any beliefs and values. A biblical worldview is defined as a framework of ideas that are in the scripture. Growing up, I never thought about my worldviews having to do with being a Christian. To be honest, I chose my views on the world based on what is happening around me. My parents, family, friends, and experiences I have encountered throughout my life. Keith Druly defined a worldview as “a particular bias in our presuppositions that influences how you look at the world and what we see or expect to see” (Druly). I can agree that I am biased when it comes …show more content…
Although, this conception is not exactly true. A secular education means that it allows for parts of people’s lives to be spiritual and nonspiritual at the same time. “It is a compartmentalization of religion; allowing for parts of people’s lives to be religious such as church attendance, observances at home, and within one’s personal thoughts”. While in work, school, education, and other areas to be irreligious. My Christian worldview is that any student can get in education from anywhere they choose. I feel like no matter the type of school, there is no such thing as a valueless education. “The difference between Christian Education and Public School Education can be described in three areas, in their Purpose of Education, Content of Education, and Control of Education”. The purpose of a public school system is based on a traditional content and the benefits to the state. Public schools have mandated exams that count based how well a student performs. Although, these scores received determine future education and jobs opportunities. The purpose of secular schools is to “prepare citizens for a humanistic society that tolerates all lifestyles” (Ekeland). While in Christian schools is “to prepare citizens for the Kingdom of God who is equipped to spread the Gospel” (Ekeland). Public schools are in controlled based on the state and Christian schools are …show more content…
I feel like religion is not determined by where you go to school, but the environment around them. What a child believes in and stays with is determined by what they encounter from their family, friends, and life experiences. “The Bible makes it clear that education is to begin in the home (Gen. 18:19; Deut. 6:7; Prov. 22:6; Eph. 6:4; II Tim. 1:5; 3:15). It makes parents responsible for their children and charges them with an educational task”. I feel like no matter where a child or adult goes to school, their religious education can only be taught at home. “It’s whatever combination of public, private, or home education a child receives, the parents’ influence on a child’s mind is preeminent” (Kidd). Horace Mann “lobbied to get a common (public) school system established in our country, his main point of emphasis was the secular/sacred divide that separated religion and education into two different and isolated compartments of life” (Mann). He argued that the home and the church should teach faith, values and the school should teach facts. From experience, I have learned more about my religion from my parents, church community, and the people I associate with on a daily basis. I felt like I could show my faith in school without having to sit in a class and learn about it. It’s hard enough sitting in a desk all day learning the
