Transcript of Spiritual Formation Presentation

Children's Spiritual
Formation Rachel Andrewson, 2012 Methodology Theology Let's Start at the Beginning ... Scripture And the Point is ...
The Gospel! Remember ... Teaching Scripture Parents Developmental Theories Philosophy “Unless Jesus is the central message of the Scriptures, many errors abound. The most common is moralizing” (Driscoll 47). “We have been created in the image of God and God has given us understanding of how people grow and develop. With this in mind children's spiritual formation is to bring them into conformity with Christ” (Carlson 121) Deuteronomy 6:7 “You shall teach them [the Law] diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise.” "The possibilities of prayer are found in its allying itself with the purposes of God, for God's purposes and man's praying are the combination of all potent and omnipotent forces." E. M. Bounds FAT teachers
Faithful, Available, Teachable
(Smith 2012) “Historical theology delineates the theological movement throughout the centuries. It is important and helpful to see the doctrinal beginnings, how they have evolved, and how they have sometimes deviated from biblical truth” (Enns 433) “The Bible is uniquely and solely God's completely trustworthy revelation to us today. Scripture is the court of highest authority for Christians and their leaders” (Driscoll 41).

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV) “All Scripture is breathed out by God, and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” God is Holy
Psalm 99:9b “for the Lord our God is holy!”
“God's holiness means that he is separated from sin and devoted to seeking his own honor” (Grudem 201). "Our Theology dictates our Philosophy which flows into our Methodology" (Smith 2012) Inerrant
Necessary “Regarding the sufficiency of Scripture, the Bible and the Bible alone teaches a complete Christian worldview that includes what we need to know about God, how to come into relation with him, who Jesus is and what he did for our salvation, and what will happen at the end of history” (Driscoll 68). Man is Sinful
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
Because of his sin Man is separated from a Holy God
Man is sinful from birth Christ Restores the Broken Relationship
Romans 5:18-19 “Therefore as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. For as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous.” Life change VS. Behaviorism John 17:17 “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” Training to assist parents
Older people who have come before
The Church as a support system and godly example Scripture Taught
Used in Music Worship Creeds, Catechisms,
and Confessions (Oh, My!) Great Teachers Prayer Cannons John 17:9 "I am praying for them, I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours." 1 Peter 3:15 "But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect."
