Title: The Basis of Christian Ethics and Morals
We are living in the midst of a changing understanding of moral and ethical standards. Society is facing continuing moral challenges with new medical and technological advances. Therefore, it is important we have a clear understanding of the basis of making Christian ethical decisions. Christians need to know why we take some of the stands we do in the formation of a Christian worldview. This class will help you understand what formulates Christian ethical principles. We will look at some of the hard questions posed by medical advancements. Issues we will examine include war and peace, capital punishment, death and assisted suicide, sexual ethics, genetics and biotechnology, reproductive technologies, and abortion.

Biblical Correctness vs. Political Correctness
Living in a non-Christian culture, we face pressures to conform and be molded by what the world deems acceptable and proper. The situation facing the early church was very similar. How did the early Christians live in their non-Christian culture and see such spectacular results? How did they view suffering and remain triumphant? We will study selected Bible portions each week to discover biblical principles/truths for living in a world of deception, darkness and false truth. The class will follow an early church practice of praying, reading the scripture, meditating on it and then formulating a calm, courageous response.
