Christian Foundations Back to Blog »
In Apologetics and Evangelism the Juniors have been discussing foundational abstract concepts in Christianity. Why? Because Dallas Willard said that without a proper foundation in these core truths we won’t be good apologists. What are these core truths? Loving God Completely, Loving Self Accurately, and Loving Others Compassionately. These are also mere abstract ideas if we don’t act out on them. They are simply confessional statements that may sound good in theory but if not acted on remain an ethereal truth statement.
Our Juniors were challenged to think outside the ‘rubric’ box and do this assignment not simply for a grade. The projects that we submitted show that Westside students really do understand what it means to love God, self, and others in very unique ways.
