This foundational course is designed to help believers 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 depth with Joseph, Esther, and Mordecai from the Old Testament and Jesus in the New Testament serving as role models. Students will be challenged by startling, ethical questions that illuminate the difference between ceremonial purity and morality, unholy protests and Christ-like anger, rebellion and spiritual war, and self-serving presumption versus self-giving love.
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 did Mordecai bow to King Ahasuerus, but not to Haman?
How do we cultivate moral courage and not just talk about it in the abstract?
