    “Public theology for the common good”

  • Clark: A Christian philosophy of education

    For long periods of time human history moves placidly along, troubled only by minor disturbances. Then in a short span of years, everything seems to happen at once. A storm overtakes the race, breaking up all the fountains of the great deep; and when the waters subside, the course of history has been set for the next epoch.…

    While the political situation that makes newspaper headlines occupies popular attention, the use which dictators have made of education shows clearly that the role of schools and universities is of more profound significance. Educational policy in the new society, whether for good or evil, will be a basic factor.

    As Christians, how do we define the Great Commission? This task, given by the risen, victorious Christ to his disciples, is correctly understood to be the definitive mission statement for the Church. As such, rightly understanding the Great Commission is of utmost importance for every Christian. Yet there are significant differences on how it is understood. How, for example, do we know when it has been accomplished? Christians don't measure the completion of this task in the same way, and the differences aren't trivial.

    Getting a Biblical worldview isn’t as simple as reading a book or going to a seminar. Our personal worldview or life auto-pilot, is programmed by all that we experience. Both our nature and nurture shape the way that we function in the world with personal choices strongly affecting the relative influences of all the different inputs. Our family, culture and language play a huge role in creating patterns of thinking and behaving that are subconscious but profoundly powerful. Instruction can quickly change what we know, but worldview changes are much slower.

    Changing the way we do something as “simple” as  demonstrates how difficult it is to ”change your mind.”

    When we are thinking about a topic, we may be fully convinced that what the Bible says about the topic is completely true. Unfortunately, we often find ourselves in situation where we have to react quickly without thinking very deeply and it is at that point that our worldview determines the kind of decision we’ll make. Fortunately, God’s children have the Holy Spirit living within to help them remember what they have learned. Also, other members of the Body of Christ should form a learning community to encourage and remind us what we’ve been taught so that, with practise, the conscious decisions to act according to what the Bible says become part of our experience and our personal worldview is transformed to be more like God’s view of reality revealed in the Bible.
