    It doesn't say what curriculum the teacher will be given to use. I would like to know what curriculum, or is it up to the teacher how it will be presented?

    I’m not sure if this is a good thing because teaching the Bible is awesome if and only if it’s taught with sound doctrine in mind, which isn’t something that’s likely to happen in a public school.

    The wording of the resolution allows anyone regardless of beliefs to teach the Bible, which means a follower of apostate/heretical Christianity, a Satanist, an atheist, et cetera can teach the Bible. What if the teacher imposes their own personal beliefs into the Bible class? I know it’s prohibited by law for them to do so, but the course description seems to imply this type of input from the teacher is needed.

    I would not want any child to be taught this by anyone who is not a Christian.

    As a Christian parent, I am very careful about who teaches my children anything to do with the Bible, so sadly as much as I like the idea, they wouldn't be teaching mine. It is a sad thing really, but an ounce of prevention and all that....

    I have the same concerns you do. God's Word is a holy book, inspired by God Himself. Spiritual things cannot be understood by mere men. They are spiritually appraised.
    Also, if the Bible is taught as literature or history, it can, of course, cause teachers and students to begin thinking about what's written there. I'm concerned that the teachers might be too politically correct and maybe even suggest the possibility of myth.

    Yeah, the potential for both good and evil is here in this. If it is taught as truth (unlikely), or in a neutral fashion (by which I mean reading the text or reading of a classic Bible story without commentary), then this can be a good thing. As soon as the door is open for interpretation by anyone who can pick and choose, you can get negative results (an athiest gives stories of sin and evil with God's judgement and claims that's all there is. Or a universalist gives proverbs to teach how our "good teacher, Jesus" had such nice things to say if you want a feel-good book). This idea is probably too little too late, but I'm inclined to think there's more good than evil likely to come from this. God can definitely use this.

    If it actually goes anywhere...

    My take on this is...GOOD, we need to get people exposed to the word of God. Remember God says His Word will not return to Him void, and the Holy Spirit is there, and He can over ride anything an Atheist or whomever tries to spin it. Just might get some souls saved. God knows.

    I don’t know anything about the Governor. I would hope he can rightly divide the word of God.

    If it is anything like what is taught in colleges, and in some seminaries, you would be correct in your concerns.

    I would love for this to happen! I love God and His Word, but history has never shown it to be a good thing for 'government' to get involved in anything to do with Christianity. But, believe me, it would please me immensely if students (& teachers) came to the Savior as a result of reading His Word. I'd sing Hallelujah!

    I was at a high school program in rural North Carolina yesterday. The student speaker Prayed in the name of Jesus after talking a little bit about King Solomon. Then the principal spoke and also prayed in the name of Jesus.

    I was well pleased.

    :pray ing as Kenny has mentioned, that God's Word would not return void and that truth will pierce through the heart, bringing many to Christ. :pray

    That would be my concern also. This class could be a good thing but depending on how it is taught, it might be very detrimental to these children.
