Yes that is right Kentucky passed a law allowing the Bible to be taught as an elective. God told this is his plan. I am very happy and many many people are too. How do we implement this course in schools? We want to not be about denominational doctrine but about students developing understanding. Students will push their freedom onto teachers in this and so we have to give teachers leeway to be people. I am surprised over the years why teachers haven't gone on strike for not being able to share their opinion in class. College professors do greatly why not high school, middle school and elementary? I think many teachers should have tenure in high school as well. That maybe implemented in some places but here in Texas it is unheard of.
I think a mutuality agreement should take place in the constitution that gives teachers to give free speech in classrooms. It is more looked at like that.
In implementing curriculum we should focus on bible literacy,memorization, ethics such as ethical preaching,ethics such as bible law,ethics such as grace based emphasis overbearing restriction. Love instead of cruel it God. Good contextual understanding like a clear peaceful understanding. Student may come to teachers to come to the Lord, we must urge teachers to let students lead them to the Lord.
We must focus on meeting a need of the students and mutuality is agree upon with the class. If students change their religion and don't want to take the class some school may offer them options. Such as switching to another class or like a contract they have to stick with it to the end of the class. It is more they aren't pressured into a denomination in the class. Preaching is going to happen, they must prepare for it. Either by the teacher or the students. Counseling is going to happen too.Good and bad things happen, we must not rule out it as an elective because of people's mistakes in implementing it. We must give grace from pressure situations,there are so many students that want to take the bible we must meet the needs of the people. We can work out the kinks.We can't be afraid to work out on the kinks we can make a better world that way, we will have so much more love from God like that.
I'm going to talk about interpretation implementation more later on.
