Philosophy:

 

†††††††††††††††† This course will examine the principles published in the founding documents of the United States, and evaluate the execution of those principles in American government.† While the virtues of democracy and citizenship in a republic will be featured, it is understood that the Christianís citizenship is in the Kingdom of God; therefore, a professing Christian must cherish the principles of that Kingdom while honoring the earthly authorities God has established.† Students, while not required to subscribe to this school of thought, will be required to consider its implications and to articulate their reflections upon it.
