Also, facilitate non-Christian students in understanding the true nature of Jesus Christ, and promote an accurate understanding of what Jesus actually taught, in contrast to how Jesus and Christianity are stereotypically and erroneously portrayed by the media and modern culture generally, thus enabling students to make an honest, rational, and informed decision regarding what to believe, including the big questions of life: How we got here (origins), why we are here (purpose/meaning), and what happens to us when our bodies stop functioning biologically (destiny).
