This study aims to examine the implication of the theory of Comenius and Froebel according to Christian Viewpoint. They were influenced by the theological thoughts and contemporary tendencies. Comenius saw life as school life, so he classified life into infant school, childhood school, boyhood school, adolescent school, adult life school, old man school and death school, and advocated lifelong education. Froebel considered about man's stage. So he classified life into infant, childhood, boyhood(adolescence), and mature adulthood. Both of them thought the basic subject in each part is the same. But the degree of difficulty at each level is different. Comenius' and Froebel's child-centered educational perspectives will be helpful in creating a sound educational climate. Especially in these days when parents take their children as means for their proxy satisfaction. Today in the field of general education Comenius' and Froebel's child-centered learning theory is enforced in the form of open education or some other forms. Comenius' and Froebel's educational theory may have to be used in church. It seems to be desirable for contemporary Christian educators to apply Comenius' theory because his educational theory originally was based on the Christian world view. It means that general education and Christian education are on the same line when they are viewed through educational philosophy and cannot be separated.
