Description

Early ​in ​our ​lives ​we ​begin ​to ​discern ​right ​from ​wrong, ​fair ​from ​unfair. ​As ​we ​grow ​up, ​we ​discover ​the ​complexity ​and ​ambiguity ​that ​accompany ​our ​lives ​in ​the ​church ​and ​the ​world. ​When ​we ​can ​no ​longer ​find ​simple ​answers, ​we ​turn ​to ​ethical ​reflection, ​the ​spiritual ​practice ​of ​bringing ​life ​and ​faith ​together ​for ​making ​difficult ​choices.
 ​
“For ​the ​Bible ​Tells ​Me ​So?: ​an ​Introduction ​to ​Christian ​Ethics” ​will ​introduce ​learners ​to ​the ​tool ​and ​methods ​for ​choosing ​action ​in ​unfamiliar ​or ​controversial ​situations. ​Drawing ​on ​the ​Bible, ​Christian ​tradition, ​experience, ​and ​reason, ​we ​bring ​our ​own ​lives ​into ​the ​ongoing ​conversation ​about ​how ​to ​live ​as ​Christians ​in ​our ​families, ​churches, ​and ​communities. ​This ​course ​will ​allow ​students ​to ​explore ​methods ​of ​ethical ​reasoning ​which ​can ​help ​us ​act ​compassionately, ​wisely, ​and ​faithfully.
