Because I'm in the sciences, I approach comments from a critical thinking aspect. I'm trying to teach the students to think on their own rather than just accept the most popular idea or what the 'experts' claim. And I do answer truthfully when they ask me questions about my beliefs.

I always say, “A great man, once said...” or “In a very well known book...” If they ask for specifics, I tell them because they initiated it, not me.

You should feel more guilty about thinking it’s acceptable to indoctrinate your students with what you think is the truth when you’re at a public school. I’m Muslim and I joined this bowl just to respond to your comment. I don’t believe that Christianity is the truth. No matter how much you try to preach to me, no matter how many Bible verses you show me, no matter how many times you try to guilt trip me into accepting what you consider is salvation, I will never accept Christianity as the truth. I will never believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. You need to realize and respect that instead of trying to force the truth on others. If you tried to tell my children that Christianity is “the truth” you had better bet I will file a complaint against you. I feel bad for any non Christian student you have.

I never said anything about indoctrinating my students, just that I feel guilty hiding the truth. Speaking the truth or something that is not part of the curriculum is something that everyone does. No one can be 100% unbiased. No one can speak without putting something from their own experience or perspective into the conversation. If we did there would be no passion or reality of the content being conveyed to anyone. Students would not learn something if they did not hear from someone who means what they say. Off-topic content is being conveyed all the time and to say otherwise is being blind to what is happening in our classrooms or even in our society. Those of the LGBTQ community (forgive me if I am missing someone or spelling it wrong) are often communicating their personal truths just by having a rainbow flag in their classroom or having conversations about that topic and are being truthful to what they believe. To say that we to can not be truthful to what we believe is completely biased and discriminatory. This is not about indoctrinating, but about presenting an option (not preaching or not telling them our Truth is the only way). These kids need an option that is not taught in schools. A religion of some sort needs to be available to them. They need a religious foundation. Everyone needs something to maintain them when all around them fails. Just look at the suicide rate. Whatever religion they choose, they need something to help them. Being absent of religion in schools has made things worse. I want to encourage them to look and choose for themselves. If they are not looking they may never find something to sustain whether it is my religion or yours, they need to find something. I want to encourage them to seek on their own and give them nuggets of truth so hopefully, they can find the ultimate Truth. I have never presented the Gospel to a student although I want to. I just want to be real and not hide who I really am. If they choose to look, great, but they need to be at least presented the option without force or indoctrination. They need to know there is meaning to life and that there is purpose. I typically present to them that to cover all rules they should sacrificially love others. This way I do not have to cover each and every rule in class. It is all covered by this one. I do not tell them where I get my one rule, but I tell them it is a great purpose in life. Not to give them the source of my information I feel is doing a great disservice to them. But they need to know I respect them and their beliefs and no one is being forced. Disrespect will never happen in my classroom. Respecting everyone goes hand in hand with loving sacrificially and self-discipline. I have never said Christianity is “the Truth.” But smaller truths need to be presented or there are no morals. Justice and morality have a foundation and this foundation needs to be given or they do not have any sort of truth to fall back on and we have an immoral society. I think we both can agree on this. Right and wrong without absolutes turn to anarchy. So there has to be a foundation. Please, present your foundation to the kids. They need to know there is more to life than nothingness.

I wouldn’t hide telling the truth soon or later they can find out themselves.
