Systematic Creative Thinking for Christians.  Fist I will answer the question I always get asked, “Why Creative Thinking for Christians?” The next question I normally get is “What makes you think Christians can be any more creative than non-Christians?” The answer to the first question is simply that I am a Christian and I have always been fascinated with the the way the mind works. My basic philosophy as a Christian is that I am not sinless, I just try to sin less. There has only be one perfect Christian on earth and that was Christ.  To answer the second question I feel Christians are better equipped to think creatively than non-Christians based on the simple element of FAITH.   Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as follows –“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen.” As Christians we must have faith in our God that we cannot see and we cannot touch.  We know he is real, we know he is there, we know he answers prayers via our faith.  Faith is the kernel of creativity.  Thomas Edison conducted his experiments and eventually developed the electric light because he had faith that his work would lead to something that had never been seen before – the electric light.

A lot of people do not think they can be creative.  Anyone that can think and can have faith can be creative.  The best way to harness  and develop your creativity is to systematize the creative process.  Random, uncontrolled, creativity can lead to breakthrough ideas but systematized creative thinking has much better odds of success. I have developed a systematized approach (copyrighted) to creative thinking with the acronym W.R.I.T.E.  This process is comprehensively covered in my book “Creative Thinking for Christians,” available at http://www.shoeboxpublishing.com. In summary this system works as follows:

W – WRITE down your objective, the problem you want to solve.

R – Gather the preliminary RESOURCES that you think you will need to develop your solution

I – Come up with IDEAS.  At this stage the wilder the ideas the better.  How do you come up with a good idea? Come up with lots of ideas. One tool to do this is brainstorming.

T – Now TAILOR your usable, executable ideas to your needs.

E – Now ENERGIZE your tailored ideas.  This is where you develop plans for your ideas to enhance their chances of success.
