CWV 301 GCU Fall of Humanity: Then and Now Worksheet

PART ONE: THE FALL – THEN

Read the assigned readings in Topic 3 (textbook Chapter 4, Lecture 3, “The Mystery of Original Sin” article, and Bible passages) and address the following questions with a total word count (including all questions and answers combined) of 500-900 words.

Cite all of the resources used with in-text citations, using at least two sources from the Topic 3 readings. Include these in the reference list at the end of the assignment.

Write your paragraph response directly below each question:

  • What is revealed about human nature (from Genesis 1-2)?
  • What are the consequences of the fall for human nature (from Genesis 3)?
  • What is revealed about human purpose from the readings? What does it mean for humans to flourish, in other words to achieve spiritual, emotional, and mental well-being?
  • How might these questions about human nature, purpose, and flourishing be answered by those holding a pantheistic or atheistic (choose one) worldview?

PART TWO: THE FALL – NOW

Consider how the fall and humanity’s exposure to good and evil are seen in the way some people treat themselves and others in dehumanizing ways today (examples: abuse, addiction, bullying, domestic violence, eating disorders, human trafficking, pornography, poverty, racism, vandalism, etc.).

Choose one act of dehumanization and write the script for a short TV public service announcement in 350-650 words. Use at least two different sources from the GCU Library cited in the text and listed below in the list of references. Include the following:

  • Highlight how the act of dehumanization is evident in the world today.
  • Provide solid ideas for prevention.
  • Include statistics, causes, and impact on people (victim, perpetrator, others as appropriate).
  • Discuss how a God-centered worldview contributes to a solution.
  • Include notes within the script about the images and video that would be included when shooting the commercial.

From the topic materials, view the two examples of a public service announcement:

  1. Child Internet Safety PSA – Online Predators
  2. Dangers of Sexting: What Teens Need to Know
