About this course

Is your conscience held captive by the Word of God, or is it subject to the whims of your culture? The world seeks to suppress your conscience and conform it into the image of the lawless one. The Christian must seek the good, strive for integrity, and reflect the holiness of our Creator and Redeemer. In this course, Dr. R.C. Sproul lays the foundation for that lifelong process.

This course has been approved by the Association of Christian Schools International for one Continuing Education Unit.
