theological essay

  

The student will complete a theological essay that will address the relationship of human sinfulness to an aspect of the doctrine of salvation. Students will examine one of the biblical images of salvation (adoption, conversion, regeneration, redemption, reconciliation, justification, election, sanctification, or glorification) and define and describe the doctrine with its biblical, historical and theological contours as well as discuss how this image of salvation relates to and addresses the problem of sin. Finally, the student will apply the implications of this doctrine to the Christian life and for the student’s chosen vocation. The essay will be 750-1000 words and the formatting should be compatible with your current degree program.

Rogerian Method of Argumentation Speech

Recall the two presidential speeches that were given by both President Obama and President Reagan, respectively.  Note that these two presidents used the Rogerian method of argumentation to not only win over those who agreed with their viewpoints, but also to win over those who held different views.   

Think about a national or international issue that matters to you and write your own speech for that issue, using the Rogerian style of argumentation.  How would you win over the other side?  You don’t need to use citations, but please do not create statistics or ‘facts.’  

You might also find this video on the Rogerian form helpful:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9knvRXU8zQ&feature=youtu.be.

Discussion two to three paragraphs

Atlantic Empires  

All of this week’s documents talk about ‘rights’ – the idea of certain rights is central to the Atlantic Revolutions. I want you to think about the different ways that the authors thought about rights, and how they shaped the course of the various revolutions. Questions to consider are: How do the different authors interpret ‘rights’ (are they talking about individual rights, group rights, etc.)? In the various Atlantic Revolutions, what groups are left out, and how do they respond?
