A Framework of Biblical Standards, Goals, and Motives to Answer Challenging Modern Ethical Dilemmas

Course Introduction

About the Course

Christian morality has always been challenged and rejected by unbelievers. But today even many believers have lost their moral footing. Moreover, believers who want to live ethically are frequently confused by the complexities of ethical decisions. Even so, with proper study of the Bible’s system of ethics, Christians can learn how to evaluate problems in ways that lead to biblical solutions.

Course Goals:

  • Describe the Bible’s system of morality in terms of ethical standards, goals and motives.
  • Equip Christians to understand the biblical standards that apply to modern dilemmas.
