Biblical Worldview Essay Instructions   Rationale for the Biblical Worldview Essay   Every person has a worldview whether he realizes it or not. What is a worldview? James W. Sire defines a worldview as:   [A] commitment, a fundamental orientation of the heart, that can be expressed as a story or in a set of presuppositions (assumptions which may be true, partially true or entirely false) that we hold (consciously or subconsciously, consistently or inconsistently) about the basic constitution of reality, and that provides the foundation on which we live and move and have our being.[1]   Stated more succinctly, “…[A] worldview is simply the total set of beliefs that a person has about the biggest questions in life.”  F. Leroy Forlines describes such questions as the “inescapable questions of life.”  Life’s inescapable questions include the following: “Is there a God? If so, what is He like? How can I know Him? Who am I? Where am I? How can I tell right from wrong? Is there life after death? What should I and what can I do about guilt? How can I deal with my inner pain?”  Life’s biggest, inescapable questions relate to whether there is a God, human origins, identity, purpose, and the hereafter, just to mention a few.   Satisfying answers to the “inescapable questions of life” are provided by the Holy Scriptures. The Holy Scriptures, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, form the starting point and foundation for the biblical worldview. More specifically related to our purposes, the apostle Paul reflects several components of the biblical worldview in his letter to the Romans.   The apostle Paul authored Romans toward the end of his third missionary journey, about 57 A.D. He addressed this letter specifically to the Christians in Rome. At the time the church in Rome consisted of Jewish and Gentile believers, with Gentile Christians in the majority. Paul wrote to the Christians in Rome in order to address specific concerns and challenges they were facing. While Romans was an occasional letter (not a systematic theology), Paul presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a very systematic fashion. The Gospel is actually the overarching theme of Romans as Paul spells this out in his programmatic statement in 1:16–17. As the systematic presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Romans is foundational to the biblical/Christian worldview.   Recognizing that Romans is not a systematic theology and does not contain all the essential truths that are relevant to a worldview per se, the apostle Paul articulates truths that are foundational to the biblical worldview. In Romans 1–8, Paul addresses certain components of a worldview that relate to the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and culture. In a 750–1000-word essay, describe what Romans 1–8 teaches regarding (1)the natural world, (2)human identity,(3) human relationships, and (4) culture. Furthermore, (5)explain how this teaching of these topics affects your worldview. Make sure that you address each of these topics in your essay.

What are your thoughts about Anna’s rationale for not obtaining informed consent? If the value of the research seems to be greater than the risks involved to participants, do you think researchers are justified in not obtaining the informed consent of participants? Would Anna’s approach as described above meet Argosy University's informed consent criteria? What advice would you give Anna about informed consent and how she should deal with her study participants?

An important ethical consideration for any research study involving human subjects is informed consent. After reviewing The Argosy University IRB handbook, consider the following vignette, which has been adapted from Corey, Corey, and Callanan (2007). Issues and ethics in the helping profession (7th ed.). Belmont, CA: Brooks/Cole. Note: The vignette presented below is not specific to a particular discipline, but an education setting is used in order to provide context for the vignette. You can adopt this vignette to your particular discipline. For example, if you are in the Business programs, the participants may be clients or customers with which you work. If you are in the Psychology or Counseling programs, the participants may be clients you see in treatments. Ethical issues vignette: Anna is conducting a research study to evaluate the process and outcome of her intervention programs at the school where she teaches. She believes that in order to obtain valid data, she must keep the research participants in the dark in as many aspects as possible. Thus, she thinks it is important that the students she works with remain unaware of the hypotheses under investigation and that they are being studied. Although she agrees that some ethical issues may be raised by her failure to inform her participants, she believes that good research designs call for such procedures. She does not want to influence her students and thus bias the results. Anna states that since there are no negative consequences or risks involved with her research, her research practices are justified. In addition, she claims that since she is able to improve her educational techniques through this research, both her current and future students will benefit. Discussion questions:

  1. What are your thoughts about Anna’s rationale for not obtaining informed consent?
  2. If the value of the research seems to be greater than the risks involved to participants, do you think researchers are justified in not obtaining the informed consent of participants?
  3. Would Anna’s approach as described above meet Argosy University’s informed consent criteria?
  4. What advice would you give Anna about informed consent and how she should deal with her study participants?

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.

Why is the Balanced Scorecard an important topic both in devising objectives and in evaluating strategies? Compare BSC to the French strategic measurement system named “Tableau de Bord”, and point out differences between them, as well as advantages and disadvantages of each one.

Assignment 1: Discussion—The Balanced Scorecard and “Tableau du Bord” (Managerial Dashboard)

The best strategies become obsolete as a firm’s external and internal environments change. This is even more concerning among companies and organizations that have operations across different countries. Management should make decisions on what needs to be reworked or changed. There are different approaches and tools available to help management to optimize this process and identify the “bottlenecks” impeding better performance and/or productivity. One of these is the Balanced Scorecard (Kaplan & Norton, 1996).

Using the Argosy University online library resources, locate a minimum of four different scholarly sources on Balanced Scorecard and other four on comparing BSC and “Tableau de Bord” (see Pezet, 2009) and answer the following:

  • Why is the Balanced Scorecard an important topic both in devising objectives and in evaluating strategies?

dentify directly the time and place of the setting. Identify directly the central character. Identify the beginning and ending key traits directly in the body of your analysis. Identify the character directly as static or dynamic in the body of your analysis, and give evidence from the climax or after the climax of the story. Include a detailed discussion of conflict in the story. What general type of central conflict is used? Is it internal or external? What specific forces are at odds? Identify the central conflict directly as ___ vs. ___. Show how the conflict is developed and resolved. Identify the climax of the story directly.

ESSAY: This essay will require analysis. Don’t retell the story; assume your reader has read it. You should have a thesis statement (statement of the controlling idea, or main point of your paper). You will need to use examples from the story to support your analysis. The references you make to the story (quotes, paraphrases, etc.) will need to be cited and documented. Your paper should be at least 3 pages double spaced. It should be formatted in MLA format with a Works Cited page that includes the story. At least ONE outside source is required for this essay.   Choose either to focus on point of view, character, or setting.   Analysis of point of view should focus on why the author has chosen this particular point of view, and how this choice adds in the revelation of other elements in the story. A thesis statement for an analysis of point of view should identify the specific point of view used in the story. Two or more secondary elements should be considered as well.   Analysis of character should address the character and conflict in the story. What is the central conflict of the story, and does it produce a static or dynamic central character (protagonist)? To answer this question, you will need to describe the central character at the beginning of the story and then at the end. Focus on one beginning key trait or value, and show how that trait or value motivates the character’s actions. Identify the beginning and ending key traits directly in the body of your analysis. Identify the character directly as static or dynamic in the body of your analysis. If the character is dynamic, trace the development of the change that occurs. Specify the point at which the dynamic change occurs and the nature of the change. If the central character is static, show how the character, despite the central conflict and its outcome, could be motivated to continue without change. For your argument, use solid evidence from the end of the story, at or after the climax you identify.   Also include a detailed discussion of conflict in the story. What general type of central conflict is used? Is it internal or external? What specific forces are at odds? Identify the central conflict directly as ___ vs. ___. Show how the conflict is developed and resolved. Identify the climax of the story directly and specifically, not as some general point in the story. Indicate other specific points on the plot line, such as the potential situation and inciting incident. What effect does the outcome have on the protagonist?   Analysis of setting should address the setting in relation to character and conflict in that story. How does the setting work to reveal or influence character and to suggest or cause conflict? Be sure to consider all aspects of setting, not just physical time and place. These aspects could include era, season, weather, environment, symbolic quality, etc.   Identify directly the time and place of the setting. Identify directly the central character. Identify the beginning and ending key traits directly in the body of your analysis. Identify the character directly as static or dynamic in the body of your analysis, and give evidence from the climax or after the climax of the story. Include a detailed discussion of conflict in the story. What general type of central conflict is used? Is it internal or external? What specific forces are at odds? Identify the central conflict directly as ___ vs. ___. Show how the conflict is developed and resolved. Identify the climax of the story directly.   The story you choose is your primary source. You must also use at least one secondary source and MLA documentation in your analysis. In other words, YOU MUST DO RESEARCH to aid you in writing this assignment, and you must use proper MLA documentation that accurately credits your sources.   For this assignment, a secondary source is one that discusses or analyzes your chosen story. Many academic journals contain articles that discuss short stories. You MUST get your secondary source(s) from the library databases (such as Gale Literary Databases, Academic Search Complete, Literature Resource Center, Gale Virtual Reference Library).   Secondary sources such as Cliff’s Notes, SparkNotes, enotes.com, bookrags.com, 123helpme.com, Wiki anything, and exampleessays.com ARE UNACCEPTABLE. Your secondary source must come from an academic journal or published book.   Your essay should be written in third person (for example: “One may interpret” or “The reader may realize”). You are NOT allowed to use first person (“I believe”) or second person (“You may think”).   Whether you are dealing with fiction, poetry, or nonfiction literature, use the present tense (also called the literary present tense) to discuss the actions and thoughts presented in the text. Do this because literature exists as a present phenomenon regardless of whether or not its author is alive.   Length of Essay:                    750-900 words   Quotations:                             3 to 5 – not more than 15-20% of your paper (turnitin shows %)   You must quote at least ONCE from EACH primary source.   You must quote at least ONCE from ONE secondary source.

How would you respond to the teacher’s question about the boys’ sexual orientation, based on research? What recommendations should you, as the counselor, give to the teacher? Keep in mind research pertaining to the promotion of healthy sexual development by parents and schools.

Imagine that you are working as a counselor in an elementary school. A teacher has come to you, concerned that a student in her class might have been sexually abused. She explains that she became concerned when two of her 5-year old male students did not come out of the restroom after she called to them several times from the door. When she went in to check on them, she saw the boys facing each other, with Kyle’s pants around his ankles. Brandon was touching Kyle’s penis and both boys were laughing. In addition to her concern about abuse, the teacher is wondering if the boys could be gay.
