Ability to gain knowledge through empirical

ability to gain knowledge through empirical observation, critical reason, intuitive insight, and scientific observation. When these truths, however they are gained, are brought into the light of God's special revelation, the Bible, by the help of the Holy Spirit, we are able to see that all truth points to and brings glory to the Lord Jesus Christ. Ultimate truth is a person. And, our response to Him is the ultimate test of whether or not we are aligned with truth or error. God is referred to as the God of truth, Jesus spoke of Himself as the Truth, and the Holy Spirit guides us into all truth. The word of God is true and the church is to be the pillar of truth. Therefore to be fully and truly educated, a person must come into a living, saving relationship with Jesus Christ. (Rom. 1:19, 20; Col. 2:3)

If we educate students to the exclusion of Biblical truth, we have failed in true education. We educate not only to impart skills and information about how our world and culture works, but to also teach a worldview that includes God in everything with no divide between secular and spiritual. Christ is all in all. (Jn. 1:3; Eph. 1: 22, 23; Col. 1: 15-18) As students recognize this truth, they will also recognize the worth God has placed on them and how they can live in a manner worthy of the gospel. As Christian educators, we desire to be faithful in our generation to communicate a Godly vision that inspires our children to walk in the freedom and openness of the gospel, and in so doing, influence their world for Christ.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
