Topic: A Christian Perspective Of Behaviorism

The Behaviorist perspective, when implemented in the classroom, can be implemented by rewarding desirable behaviors and punishing undesirable behaviors. Some Christians argue that while the behaviors may change, the heart may not. Reflect on the following verses, in addition to this week’s assigned reading selection, and answer the subsequent prompts.

Jeremiah 17:10
Proverbs 23:7
Romans 8:27

Scripture tells us that God knows our heart. Do you feel that we can we utilize Behavioristic techniques (e.g. Behavior Contracts, Token Economies, etc.) while still maintaining our Christian worldview?

Search scripture to include one additional verse that provides support for or against your opinion.
