Importance of a Biblical Worldview
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
- Colossians 2:8
Since the founding days of our nation, God’s Word had been preeminent in all society. However, during the early 20th century we have witnessed a departing from the foundations of this country. In my lifetime, I’ve seen prayer and the Bible removed from our public schools. Now, the only time we see prayer in schools is after students have been gunned down in the halls of our schools. One of the primary differences between Christian and public education is the choice of curricula. Public schools have moved away from curricula that acknowledges the truth of the Christian faith or its impact on American life. Today, we see America’s religious heritage and morals being regularly denied in our public-school textbooks. That’s why Christian education is essential for our children, because everything is taught from the perspective of what the Bible teaches.
Westwood Christian School’s mission is to prepare our students for college, career, and Christ. Preparing them for Christ involves both offering them a personal salvation through the gospel of Jesus Christ and helping them to grow into mature Christian adults. Central to this maturing process is a thorough understanding a Biblical Worldview and application of the scriptures to one’s life.
A Biblical Worldview is vital to the spiritual well-being of a student’s development as person.
