Christian Ethics Course

This is part of the core curriculum for International Online Bible College, but anyone may use this material free of charge. 

Scope of the Course: In this course, you will learn the conservative Christian stance on and reasoning for many of today's hot-button issues.

Grading: Your grade will be based on the reflection comments you write for each of the videos below and your completion of the Use Your Gifts final project.


To complete the course...

1. Watch each of the following videos. Assignment: Leave a 200-word comment reflecting on the material in each video - 200 points each. I also encourage you to take notes to keep for your own use.

I've collected these videos based on Norman Geisler's work and statements from the Christian Medical and Dental Association to give us some guidance.

Choose one topic from this course for your final project. It may be writing a Bible study, recording yourself preaching a sermon, writing a worship song, creating a work of art, writing a research paper on a topic of interest, gathering a list of Bible verses on a certain theme, gathering a list of quotes on a theme, etc. – anything that shows you have engaged with and understood the subject.

Bible Helps may publish your final project as an example to other students and for the edification of our readers. You will be credited as the writer/creator, etc.
