BIT: Discussion Starters

Biblical integration is demonstrating how a unit of study (not an individual lesson plan) reveals the character or nature of God, Creation, Mankind, Moral Order or Purpose.

For example, a unit on weights and measures leads nicely into a discussion of the need for standard units of measure and allows teachers to distinguish between ideas of fair, right and justice. But while these ideas are important, remember to define them through God's Word (Romans 3:10 & 23, 7:12, etc).

When my family recently visited Yellowstone National Park, my son was upset at the evolution messages in the displays. I reminded him that the geologic and ecological evidences were there for everyone to observe, but we interpret the general revelation of nature in unison with the Bible.
