At Isaac Newton Christian Academy, we believe that our students need to understand that the truth of God’s word applies to all of life. They need to be able to discern truth from error, whether one day sitting in a secular high school or university classroom, or simply watching the evening news.
The theme for Grade 6 is entitled A World of Worldviews. It is a transition year between Building on the Rock, and Lightbearers. It introduces students to the essential components of all worldviews, laying the groundwork for Lightbearers and further comparative worldview studies.
Designed for 7th and 8th graders, Lightbearers systematically walks students through life’s “big questions,” comparing the Christian worldview to naturalism and transcendentalism. Students learn how to apply their Christian faith to every area of life: theology, philosophy, ethics, biology, sociology, psychology, law, politics, economics, and history. The course also includes a complete Bible survey of the Old and New Testaments.
Lightbearers prepares Christian youth for the world in which they are living and trains them to recognize the false ideas of this world. Most of our graduates go on to area secular high schools and we feel strongly about preparing them for the humanistic ideas they will encounter and give them the materials they will need to stand strong in their Christian faith.
