Here are the resources for Lesson 2 – Philosophy & Ethics: Says Who?

Points to consider for discussion time:

  1. Why are so many people – even those who argue adamantly for the “cosmic cube” perspective – so obviously uncomfortable with life “inside the box”? How do they attempt to deal with this difficulty?
  2. What do we mean by universals and particulars? How are they related? What bearing do they have on our quest for answers to the “Big Questions” of life?
  3. Dr. Tackett asserts, “You won’t find the answers to the Big Questions inside the box.” Why not?
  4. What, according to Dr. R. C. Sproul, is the distinction between morality and ethics? How has confusion on this point precipitated a crisis in ethics in the modern world?
  5. How does the biblical worldview stand opposed to the “cosmic cube” worldview?
  6. Is it possible for a Christian to be deceived and “taken captive” by the empty philosophies of the world? If you have been deceived, how do you know? How?
