Elnora Bible Institute  Equipping DISCIPLES to Show the WAY
Practical  Department
802 Biblical Ethics      3 Hours An   introduction   of   how   to   develop   Biblical   standards   about   subjects   that   scripture   may   only   indirectly   address   such   as   Weddings,   Gambling, Biomedical Issues, Ecology, Political Involvement, Capital Punishment, War, Cremation, Suicide, Euthanasia, Abortion, Funerals, etc.
202 Biblical Stewardship and Finances      2 Hours One   of   the   purposes   of   this   class   is   to   establish   a   Biblical   understanding   of   Christian   stewardship   and   find   practical   ways   of   applying   them. Emphasis   will   be   on   ownership,   varying   views   of   finances   and   possessions,   tithing   and   giving   beyond   the   tithe,   debt,   family   budgeting, brotherhood   and   mutual   aid,   saving,   retirement,   estate   planning,   etc.   This   course   will   also   examine   the   change   Christ   seeks   to   bring   in   our journey   with   Him   as   He   interacts   with   us   through   the   events   of   our   lives,   and   also   what   role   the   traditional   Christian   disciplines   play   in   this transformation of heart and renewal of the mind.
302 Marriage and Family      3 Hours This   course   is   a   study   of   principles   relating   to   marriage   and   family.   There   will   be      practical   help   to   prepare   young   people   for   courtship,   marriage, and parenting from a Christian perspective.
402 Peace and the Simple Life       3 Hours In this course we will examine the biblical basis for peace and nonresistance. We will examine the historical evidence for this position and discuss how to apply this principle in times of war and peace. We will also discuss the biblical basis for a simple life and how to live this out in our culture. We want to rise above the violence and greed of human society, and God has made a way!
502 Spiritual Disciplines      2 Hours According to the teachings of Jesus, He came into the world to bring us a new kind of life. This life is to be an abundant life, i.e., one that expresses life   that   is   eternal   in   both   its   quantity   and   quality.   In   this   course   we   will   explore   how   this   is   to   be   accomplished.   We   will   look   at   the   change   Christ seeks   to   bring   in   our   journey   with   Him   as   He   interacts   with   us   through   the   events   of   our   lives,   and   also   what   role   the   traditional   Christian disciplines   play   in   this   transformation   of   heart   and   renewal   of   the   mind.   The   course   will   involve   a   historical   survey   of   spiritual   giants   and   their writings together with practical experience in the disciplines.
602 Spiritual Preparation for Higher Education      2 Hours While we do not necessarily recommend college education, some may find it necessary. This course is offered to assist the pre-college student in maintaining biblical Anabaptist moorings in the college environment.
702 Living in Community      2 Hours Is   it   required   that   a   biblical   Christian   live   in   community   with   other   believers?   How   does   living   in   community   impact   our   choices?   What   is   the rightful place of the local church in the believer’s life? This course explains what the Bible says about these life sustaining issues.
