Which would be more bothersome:
Going to a doctor who is not a believer but recognizes the importance of spiritual health as it pertains to physical health, so encourages “spiritual treatment” as well as physical treatment.

 or

Going to the atheistic doctor who denies God’s existence and just deals with the physical make-up of the individual. And refuses to acknowledge any possibility of God in the healing process.

Now have at it!!! (it is impossible to not have an opinion…so please share)

So, my oldest daughter is rapidly approaching the age of 10. Which movie would you recommend she watch? (I know many of you would say she should watch neither and try to say that films are a waste of time…nice try, I am wise to your antics.)

Should she watch a movie that is laden with pretty foul language, and a marginal amount of implied violence, but that also has a powerful and unmistakable theme of redemption and the redemptive power of meaningful relationships?

Or

Should she watch a film which is intended for children that has no foul language, but is ultimately a story of an adolescent girl rebelling against her father, bartering her soul to evil, seducing a man, and ultimately getting what she wants?

Which is more appropriate? Have at it….

In today’s economy finding a job is a blessing, finding a job that is rewarding & fulfilling would be amazing. Let’s imagine for a moment that you actually have such a job available, it is your responsibility to fill this job opening. So you do your due diligence and you have narrowed your search down to the final two candidates which one of these two candidates would you hire?

Candidate A
This person has an amazing knowledge of the material required to do the job, they also have an incredible amount of experience in the field. They come with very impressive recommendations from previous employers. While in the interview they never establish eye contact, to the best of your knowledge they only look at the floor the entire time. The answers they give are insightful and very impressive.

Or

Candidate B
This person has an amazing knowledge of the material required to do the job, they also have an incredible amount of experience in the field. They come with very impressive recommendations from previous employers. While in the interview they establish and maintain eye contact for the duration of the interview. The answers they give are insightful and very impressive.

So which of these two do you hire? Have at it…

So this is the faculty blog at EBC. That being said, let me just state the obvious, we are all teachers. So this question actually comes out our own life experience here at EBC.

Here is a little peek behind the curtain that is education (I will occasionally pull the curtain back on aspects of education, I am sure you will be intrigued with what you find): As an educator I can walk into a classroom of students and through (1) asking them a series of questions, (2) subsequently responding to their questions, and then (3) asking a different series of questions, actually have students arrive at the conclusions I was hoping for. All the while, they feel like they have actually arrived at these conclusions on their own. So here is the question:

Is that just good teaching?

Or

Is that incredible manipulation?

Yes folks that’s it, that is all I’ve got. What is the difference between teaching and manipulation? Have at it.

As many of you are well aware, Christmas is a time of conflicting emotion. I get super excited as I think through Jesus’ incarnation and the implications of that wonderful event. I also get incredibly frustrated at the gross consumerism demonstrated by such a majority of society. So in light of the season, here is the question:

Which of these is most appropriate?

To graciously decline any gift offered to you (you certainly have plenty) or as an alternative, suggest that friends and family make a donation of what ever amount they would have spent on a gift to a charitable cause?

Or

Accepting the generosity of others and allowing gifts to be bestowed upon you. Knowing that you do not need them, but allowing others to bless you and give you something you do not deserve?

Which is best? Have at it…
