Discussion Board Forum Instructions
Chapter 13 of your textbook describes the “Us Versus Them” mentality, including the concepts of in-group bias and out-group homogeneity. Provide an example from the Bible where the “us versus them” mentality is shown. Be sure to provide supporting evidence of in-group bias and/or out-group homogeneity in your example. How would the Lord have us treat those in the out-group?
Throughout the term, you will be required to complete 4 Discussion Board Forums. For each forum, you are required to provide a thread in response to the provided prompt. Each thread must be 300–500 words and demonstrate course-related knowledge. For each thread, you must use and cite (in current APA style) the textbook, a second academic source (academic books or peer-reviewed articles only), and Scripture. Keep in mind that your second source needs to be an academic/scholarly or peer-reviewed source. This means that websites and non-academic articles (e.g., newspaper, magazine) or books will not count toward your second source. When citing Scripture, also include an explanation or application of your chosen Scripture, rather than simply quoting a Bible verse. In addition to your in-text citations, you must include your sources in a reference section at the end of your post, formatted in current APA style. The Bible does not need to be listed in the reference section, but you must include book, chapter, and verse(s) in your in-text citation.
