The Christian Roots of Canada’s History: Government Godliness
At my 45 years of age, I remember when every day at public (government-run) school the Lord’s Prayer and O Canada is what started us off. I’m not sure when that stopped, but I believe public education went downhill quickly when it did. While I thought that in this day and age all indications of God or a slight mention of His hand in Canada’s government history were long gone, I was amazed to find that some of our parliament buildings still hold a remarkable honour to God.
A Homeschooler’s Favourite Resources on History with a Christian Worldview
History is one of the topics and subjects more easily covered via homeschool than a traditional schooling model. The reason for this is that the consistency of parental teaching means consistency in the teaching of history and a Christian worldview. It is much easier to cover history chronologically and to focus on how certain threads tie throughout history when there is consistency. As believers, we cannot study history without considering Biblical history as well. If we believe in creation and that the Bible is true, those events are woven throughout world history.
Studying History with A Biblical Worldview
History can best be described as a bunch of facts and dates in the past. It is agreed that studying history is beneficial to shaping our future. However, sometimes what we find from one source does not line up with what the Bible teaches or what other perspectives are on history. While there are facts, dates and other information to know, we find that not everyone agrees on what those are.
