Course Description: Advanced Theology is a 2 credit class; as such, it has 26 lectures (each 35-45 minutes in length). Advanced Theology is designed to take a summary look at the major doctrines of the Bible, and the theological systems used by various Christian groups around the world. So many conflicts arise in the church because believers from one Christian background don’t understand the distinctive beliefs of those from another background. Too often these conflicts result in argumentation which leads to isolation from other Christians. The result is that the universal Church remains divided and yet the believers attending the various assemblies are supposed to all be members of the same universal Body of Christ. Advanced Theology is designed to address the theological differences between Christian groups with the goal that it can hopefully enable more unified cooperation between believers from differing backgrounds. There will be points that people from different groups cannot agree. There are also many areas where they share common beliefs. TO PREVIEW A LECTURE CLICK HERE Course Objectives:   To allow the graduating seniors the opportunity to think through each of the ten major areas of doctrine that they have been taught in their PBC program; the goal of this is to reacquaint students with the various opinions held on each subject so that they can then formulate their own personal belief on each point. To show how the beliefs about certain doctrines affect current trends or ideas present in the world and church today; this is to help prepare each student as to how they should respond to these issues as they encounter them in the future. To acquaint the seniors with the belief systems used by other Christians from various groups and denominations; this is to help the students understand the cause for distinctions between the various Christian groups, and enable them, in the future, to relate to people in various groups with a greater sense of understanding and charity. As future leaders, the students should be able to better support and cooperate with other segments of the church.
