Course Description:
Societies, governments, and individuals enjoy a very complex relationship among each other, often with no shortage of problems. Building on the foundation of God’s word and an understanding of the impact of human sinfulness, students will focus on the causes and response to these problems. Each unit is focused on a particular area of concern as students discover not only how these social problems affect them personally and the world around them, but how they can make a difference globally while standing on God’s Word and declaring His truths.

Biblical Integration Information:
The times and affairs of man are in the hands of the eternal and transcendent God. Human behavior and decisions often reveal our desire to grasp authority, coerce, manipulate, or intimidate others created in God’s image. Rather than being the master of our own fate, humans are created in the image of God and responsible to Him. Therefore, we should seek unity, justice, and reconciliation as we are guided by the principles of God’s Word. Our interactions with one another and with God can be patterned upon the historical person of Jesus Christ and sanctified as we relate to Him and seek His grace in our lives and times. Recognizing that our possessions and talents are to be used for the edification of our neighbor and the glory of God will lead us into true stewardship, citizenship, and social health as we wait patiently for His return and establishment of His eternal Kingdom.
