I grew up in a fundamentalist church environment that Entwistle (2010) would describe as a group that is “typically opposed the entire field of psychology…and [is] critical of those who did not share their distrust of psychology” (Entwistle, 2010, p. 47). For the last fifteen years, I have fellowshipped at non-denominational churches but must admit that, whenever I felt theologically challenged, I always fell back on my fundamental Bible training. As a result of Entwistle’s book, I learned that I have a monotheistic Christian worldview that affects how I interpret and evaluate people, places, and things. Even though I believe that coaching and counseling share some of the same goals (behavior correction and change), I had not thought about the implications of embracing other disciplines, in my Christ-centered, Christian coaching model. It turns out that, after reviewing Entwistle’s (2010) integration models, I would be a cross between the Enemies (Christian Combatant) and Colonists models.
My FDDS colleagues and I would have to find sponsors and other American University faculty members who would be willing to come into the seminar everyday to help run this program. This seminar will help our future generations make just decisions and treat the people around them with respect. To measure the success rate of this event, students who attended the seminar can take a survey and discuss what they have learned during the seminar. The students who really enjoyed their stay can write an essay on why they would like to come back and volunteer the next year. Only twenty volunteer spots would be available for returning students.
The winning team got their bagels paid for when our whole floor went out to bagel café for brunch the next day. I enjoy this program because it was able to bring together residents on my floor that didn’t necessarily know each other by the halfway point of FSSP. Also, it allowed me to demonstrate to my residents that I was invested in them by showing them my role on the floor is not a passive one, but an active one. I didn’t just send them out on their scavenger hunt and relaxed for an hour. I went out, biked around looking for each team, saw the silly things they were doing together, and got to know them all better as a result of this bonding
“Synthesis Essay: Dignity in the Workplace” Most of us walk into McDonald’s and recognize the familiar aroma of their famous burgers and fries. The average customer finds his or her way to the counter, orders food, pays, and then steps to the side for moment just until their number is called. Although the food is great, many of us, including myself, forget that hardworking people took their time and energy to make our fries. Many of us fail ask the person behind the counter how their day is going. Hell, we don’t even bother to look at the nametag of the person who is taking down our order.
Integrative approaches to psychology and Christianity: An introduction to worldview issues, philosophical foundations, and models of integration by David N. Entwistle covers an extremely topical and controversial issue of whether psychology and theology can be successfully integrated into contemporary counseling practice. In fact, the author starts his book by emphasizing that psychology and Christianity have been largely considered as mutually incompatible and exclusive. However, Entwistle (2010) does not agree with this idea and supposes that faith can be an integral component of all daily activities, including counseling practice. Entwistle provides an in-depth look at both and extends a way to model the two in such a way they supplement
I have been able to take some ideas or understanding from each theologian presented within chapter four, but the section in chapter six on process Theology was very bitter for me. Cobb as well as the other theologians within this area of process theology creates in me a belief that process theology is heresy! I say this because it seems as if they have rendered God as an inept babbling idiot with no control over a universe gone out of control topped off with their complete denial of Jesus Christ’s divinity is a hard pill to lump. This sounds like junk you would hear in an introduction to philosophy class taught at a secular university, not the collection of thoughts from men who have studied the sacred scripture. As the Apostle John said in 1 John 2:22-23 NASB “Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ?
Although many, including myself, criticize contemporary Christian music as not being truly about the glorification of God, the genre’s main focus is to change how everyone views God and Christianity as a whole. Although, some people like me believe that this shouldn’t be changed due to the possibility of God no longer being the center of the message, the main focus of the genre is to attract Christians and Atheists alike through their music, in the same way that secular Rock sought the attention of all
giving false acceptances into partaking in misleading behavior and an inaccurate intention on what it means to attend church. It is only expected for one to ask themselves why a person with good christian morals would fall into a struggling sinful trap. Written in the textbook, Exploring Psychology written by David G Myers; In chapter 13 it discusses social psychology which is the scientific study of how people think about, influence, and relate to one another. Focusing in on how people influence one another. In this chapter, Myers discusses the cognitive dissonance theory.
The belief in god is another key element in modern conservatism. Although, Farwell got credit for given Regan the conservative Christian vote Regan did not give Christian conservatives all they wanted and compromises had to be made. They did however remove Darwin’s theory from being taught in classrooms. Teachers also had to advocate pro-abstinence as being the only effective form of birth control. The bush administration continued the nations defense effort.
My knowledge of the Bible is limited to what was reiterated to me in church. Growing up, I was taught that Satan was once a good angel who rebelled against and disobeyed God because he was jealous and wanted to be more powerful than God. I never questioned this because I thought seeking answers and clarification would be going against God. For some Christians, Satan is the
