CMT 029 Christian Ethics A Biblical Theology of Morality

Course Description:

In a self-centered culture, how do we demonstrate a God-centered ethic?

The lectures survey various ethical systems, identify unstated assumptions in ethical theories, and evaluate those theories for legitimacy, relevancy, and cogency. The goal of the course is to provide learners with a Christian framework of values and ethics, leading them to make God-honoring decisions in a truth-relative world.
