Here are the resources for Lesson 7 – Sociology: The Divine Imprint

Points to consider for discussion time

  • What point was Dr. Tackett making with the chicken egg?
  • What did Dr. Tackett call the “Divine Pause”? Why?
  • In Genesis 2:18, God declares that “it is not good for man to be alone.” What does Dr. Tackett mean when he says that this is an ethical rather than a qualitative statement? How does this assertion become important to our entire discussion of the social order?
  • What do theologians and philosophers mean when they talk about the “Natural Law?”
  • Dr. Tackett claims to see “threes” wherever he looks in creation or in the human social order. How is this “Trinitarian” pattern evident in the structure and relationships of family, church, and the union between God and man?
  • In Malachi 2:16, God says that He “hates divorce.” Why does Dr. Tackett maintain that this is notsimply a practical or pragmatic statement? What light does the principle contained in this verse cast on all of the pathologies associated with the family? With human life as a whole?
  • Discuss some practical examples of the intensity of the Cosmic Battle as it is being played out in the realm of the social order in our day. How are people in contemporary society manifesting their unwillingness to acknowledge the obvious and look upon the face of God in this area? What should our response be to this situation?
