Class Description: This four-week class will begin by looking at morality from a non-biblical worldview in contrast to a biblical worldview. The focus will then shift to the Abrahamic covenant and the promised seed. From there, we will look at what the Bible says about God’s people, who they are, and what the Gospel requires of us. And finally, a look at the modern landscape of race relations with a focus on critical race theory and God’s justice for humankind.
