Pepperdine is a Christian university committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values, where students are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership.
I'm having a lot of trouble responding to Pepperdine's mission statement...
I feeling writing along the lines of 'The Bible/Jesus says X, Pepperdine teaches X and X so relevant in today's society moreso than ever before, and I believe in X.' wouldn't be a very good approach
I though about writing about how I like Christianity's generally deontological moral framework and how... but this doesn't really address the 'values' angle at all
Having a lot of trouble thinking/writing about Christianity w/o criticizing it
anyone who wrote this essay have any ideas on how to break ground?
