Description: 3 credits: Literature, American History and Apologetics (or Philosophy).
The goal of this lively discussion course is to help establish a Biblical worldview. Students will look up scripture on the seven basic worldview questions:
- What is the Nature of God?
- What is the Origin of the Universe?
- What is the Nature of Man?
- What is the Meaning of History?
- What Happens after Death?
- What is the Basis for Ethics and Morality?
- What is the Cause of Evil and Suffering?
Following the class discussion, students will write a paragraph each week on the topic. Later introductory and concluding paragraphs will be added to the multi-page essay: “My Personal Worldview”. The class will also evaluate literature and movies and study America’s Inspired Birth.
