Have you ever been curious about other world views like Mormonism, Scientology or Buddhism? Trinity's Apologetics students got the opportunity to research a worldview and present it to their class so the class got an overview of several different positions.
The seniors were to give an oral presentation as a character they've embodied in hopes to persuade the class of their new-found "truth." They were encouraged to fully embrace their given worldview through dress, props and visual aids. Their conclusion was to explain where their chosen worldview differs from Christianity, falling short of both logic and the true message of the Gospel.
Views presented included: Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Scientology, Christian Scientists, Hedonism, Sikhism, New Atheism Baha'i, Daoism, Muism, Shintoism, Naturalism, Deism, and Judaism.
Presentations demonstrated that Scientology (despite calling itself the Church of Scientology) is a non-religious group whose goal is to reach personal freedom in their soul. Jehovah's Witnesses don't believe in the deity of Christ. Hinduism believes in reincarnation and worships many gods. Muism is polytheistic and animistic in its worship, seeking healing welfare and fortune from its gods. New Atheism is assertive in its beliefs, thinking that religion causes all kinds of bad things in the world and they pull their views strongly from science, citing Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett.
Students enjoyed acting as believers in their worldview and creatively presenting to their class.
