The Bible & Current Events
Does the Bible actually address every situation? Is the Bible even relevant today? Is the Bible the only source of truth? Is this the end of civilization as we know it? What about #MeToo and other social justice movements? The world is changing at a rapid pace, and that change brings a lot of questions.
In this course, students will be introduced to applying a worldview to current events. Students will begin by studying how important men and women in history allowed their worldviews to shape them, and then apply those principles to their own worldviews. While this class is taught from a Christian perspective, students will be introduced to many viewpoints and allowed to discuss freely and safely their ideas.
While a standard framework for this course is in place, please be aware that as national and world events unfold, the content of the course may vary. The core topics discussed should remain mostly the same, but the events discussed to apply the views may change.
