Benchmark – Ethical Dilemmas

In  this assignment, you will analyze the implications of an ethical issue  according to the Christian worldview. You will be challenged to think  about Christian worldview core beliefs and apply what you have learned  over this course. This will be a thorough analysis of a case study you  will choose from the options provided.

Write a 1,000-1,500-word  essay in which you analyze ethical thinking and use values-based  decision-making to address a case study from the perspective of the  Christian worldview. Choose one case study from the five options listed  in the attached “Ethical Dilemmas” document.

After an appropriate  introductory paragraph with a thesis statement in which you name the  scenario you are choosing, address each of the following six sections  with at least one paragraph each. Write at least one paragraph for each  component using the underlined titles for a subheading.

  1. Ethical Dilemma:  Briefly describe the ethical dilemma in your own words, including (a)  what in the scenario makes it difficult to make an ethical decision and  (b) at least two options for resolving the scenario, providing a brief  overview of what sort of ethical decisions each option might make.
  2. Core Beliefs:  What beliefs about God and humanity from the Christian worldview are  relevant to the scenario? How might these core worldview commitments of  Christians influence one’s decision-making with regard to this scenario?
  3. Resolution:  Describe the Christian worldview’s proposal for resolving the ethical  dilemma. How should the person in the scenario act according to the  Christian worldview? What is the best course of action for a Christian?  (Note: The resolution should be consistent with Christian worldview  commitments.)
  4. Evaluation: What might be the unintended consequences and perceived benefits of the resolution proposed by the Christian worldview?
  5. Comparison:  How does the Christian worldview resolution compare to how another  worldview might resolve the dilemma? Choose a specific contrasting  worldview, such as atheism, pantheism, or scientism.
  6. Conclusion: Synthesize the main points, pulling the ideas of the paper together.
  7. References

Use  and cite two course resources (textbook, overviews, and the Bible), and  at least two scholarly sources from the GCU Library that address the  issue from opposing sides. Refer to the directions on “Navigating the  GCU Library for CWV Benchmark Research” and the “Example Ethical Dilemma  Essay.”
