CG-203: Worldviews in Comparison

COURSE: CG 203

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course compares the Biblical worldview and the worldview prominent within the ministry context of Africa with a concentration upon Christ the victor over sin, Satan, and other powers that try to influence the individual and society.

COURSE RATIONALE

Each society and culture has a certain understanding of how the elements of the universe influence human beings. Many cultures link this understanding to stories of creation and agricultural myths, and other legends. The Nazarene pastor has the privilege of helping those within their context understand the worldview found in the Bible and how it compares with and challenges their contemporary context. To help with this work, this course looks at basic examples from many African cultures and compares them with the Biblical story of creation and redemption. This course suggests that Jesus Christ is the victor over all other spiritual forces either at the personal level as well as with in all creation.
