Students must compare and contrast cohabitation, divorce, and remarriage from a Christian and sociological world view. How is the Christian world view similar to and different from the sociological view? Students will write a 3-4 page (not including title and references) APA style paper that integrates faith and learning with the sociological perspective (Note: Sociology is the study of society. Do not make the mistake of conflating society to sociology). Students must utilize their textbook as well as biblical scripture in their analysis.
Note: In text citations should look like this: (Verse Edition of the bible you are using).
Ex: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Cor. 5:17 King James Version). This citation should fall at the very end of the sentence in which the scripture is used.
Reference list entries are not required for ancient Greek and Roman works or classical religious works, but are expected for scholarly works (e.g. your textbook).
