Fundamentals of Worldviews – gr 9+

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:

  1. What is the Nature of God?
  2. What is the Origin of the Universe?
  3. What is the Nature of Man?
  4. What is the Meaning of History?
  5. What Happens after Death?
  6. What is the Basis for Ethics and Morality?
  7. 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.
