Moral Courage

Course Description:

This foundational course is designed to help students live on mission with moral courage.  It provides a venue for students to find the will to do what God says is right.  Inspirational stories will be featured in the course with Joshua, Esther, Mordecai from the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament serving as role models.  Students will be challenged with startling, ethical questions that illuminate  the difference between purity and morality, godly anger and self-righteousness, rebellion and spiritual war.

Key Questions To Be Explored:

  • What does it mean to find the moral courage to act with integrity as a Christ follower, even in the face of opposition?

  • What can we learn from the moral courage of Esther and Mordecai who lived under a totalitarian government?

  • Why would God command Joshua to annihilate the Canaanites?

  • How can we best emulate the moral courage of Jesus?
