For this assignment, you must compose a 3-page double-spaced paper that addresses how the principles that you have learned throughout this course have changed your understanding of what it means to be a Christian

The format is:

1.      1.An explanation of the topic/doctrine

2.      2. Scriptural basis for the doctrine

3.      3. Practical application of the doctrine to the life of the student


 As you respond to the prompt, reflect on the concepts that you have learned throughout the course, and apply them to your specific topic. Be sure to integrate the information that you learned through the textbook readings, the assigned article readings, the lecture videos, and any other related content that you may have encountered during the course. Your paper should also:


1.      Describe the course concepts that are related to your topic, demonstrating your reflection and analysis. Do not simply summarize what was presented in the course.

2.      Demonstrate real ownership of the ideas that you present by providing unique insight as evidence of your careful consideration of the topic.

3.      Provide a logical link between the description of the concepts from the course, and the conclusions or implications that you draw in your reflection. In other words, your conclusion should be logically derived from the application of the course concepts to the description of your topic.

4.      Demonstrate learning initiative by exploring conclusions and implications beyond the boundaries of our classroom discussion.

5.      Focus on depth of understanding, rather than breadth of coverage.


Format your paper in a Microsoft Word document using current APA, MLA, or Turabian style (whichever corresponds to your degree program). Review the Reflection Paper Grading Rubric to see the specific grading criteria by which you will be evaluated before submitting your paper.
