SEMINARY: Education or Religious Schooling? part 1

Seminary training, for the most part, has failed to integrate the study of the Bible with the study of God’s works and God’s reason. That is the premise of a recent paper by our friend, Vishal Mangalwadi, founder and president of The Revelation Movement. A scholar, author, and speaker, Vishal is one of DNA’s Idea

Dualism: The Hidden Effect of Secular Education on Christian Children

Dualism, not atheism, may be the bigger threat to Christian students in the public school classroom.

The Atheists Who Honored the Bible

While driving down Nyezalyezhnastsi Boulevard to the international airport in Minsk, Belarus, we encountered a feast for the eyes, the just-completed National Library of Belarus.

What Does the Bible Say About Loving the World?

God so loved the world … John’s gospel 3:16 Do not love the world … John’s first epistle 2:15 In my previous post I pointed out that Matthew 6:24 and Colossians 3:2, understood in context, do not contradict the larger themes of scripture that we teach at the DNA, themes

Freedom Comes From Religious Education, But Not Just Any Religion

Mike Metzger’s recent essay, The Fourth R caught my attention. (As we wrote here, Mike is the Senior Fellow and President of the Clapham Institute. His weekly DoggieHead Tilt blog is a regular part of my reading.) Mike says the Fourth R of education was religion. He reminds us that
