Maximizing Learner Autonomy Through Reflective Teaching

Qing XU

Abstract


In The Bible Christians are likened as salt by Jesus. But if they lose the salt-like flavor and become useless, they will be thrown away, and be trodden under the feet of men. This article aims to analyze the causes and results of the lost taste of salt and explore that Christians, although suffering, yet becoming victorious in a difficult environment, will be blessed, be rich in the taste of salt and live a valued life.
