Statement of Position Instructions

For this assignment, you will select 4 of the cultural concepts listed below that connect to the Christian faith in some way. You will then write out your personal position on these issues. As a Christian leader, it is important for you to have a clear, specific, and concise position on key cultural issues. You must be able to articulate the Bible in a meaningful way as you engage the church and the world.

This assignment will follow a similar pattern as the “Statement of Faith;” however, you will only select 4 topics which will each include 3 parts. Each of the 4 designated topics must be presented on its own page and contain 3 parts.

1. Provide the topic name as the title.

2. Following the title, provide a clear, specific, and concise summary of your position as it relates to your understanding of the Bible in relation to this particular topic. You must consider any key issues or questions listed beside the topic title below, but do not limit the summary to these issues. This summary must be 75–200 words and be based upon a contextual understanding of various passages.[footnoteRef:1] These statements must be in your own words and you must document any sources you utilize. [1: The purpose of providing such word limits is to train the student on how to be precise and clear while also preparing the student for publication. Publishers for blogs, journals, or books will often give a specific word range by which the author must abide.]

3. Following that summary, provide a list of at least 5 Bible verses that support your statement and from which you derived your understanding of the topic presented. Do not merely list the verse references, but provided the entire verse along with a note listing the Bible translation you are using. These verses must obviously support some aspect of the statement you present. Do not just provide 5 verses on the topic, but ensure that the verses are foundational to the position you present.
