Assignment Instructions


In the field of federalism and intergovernmental relations, the Christian statesman should reason and make decisions about policy according to the Scripture, Christian morality, and the founding constitutional principles of limited government. Toward that end, the Discussion assignment’s purpose is to develop some of those skills the Christian statesman needs as he reasons and takes a position on policies related to federalism and intergovernmental relations.

To aid in that goal, each of the three Discussion assignments focuses on taking a position (the “thesis”) with respect to the assigned question (the “prompt”) and defending that position. The content of these discussions will pertain to assessing both the theories of federalism, and the major changes that have taken place in the federal arrangement in modern times.


You will participate in three Discussion assignments. Each Discussion assignment will have a minimum of four postings in Turabian Author-Date style consisting of one thread and three replies.

 For the one threadCompose a 1000-1250-word essay that cogently addresses and answers the prompt and post it by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Thursday of the assigned Module: Week. Provide at least three citations from the required course materials and one reference to Scripture.


Consider the thread as professional communications by the Christian statesman. As such, they should:

·         avoid the repeating of information that was in earlier threads and replies.

·         provide substantive and well-reasoned arguments, not merely opinions.

·         demonstrate a mastery of the required course materials.

·         demonstrate care in the proper citation and referencing of sources.

·         relate points in the discussion to past readings, relevant personal experience, and principles (biblical, moral, and constitutional).

·         integrate the required scripture and citations into the discussion.



The United States Supreme Court contributed to the interpretation of framers’ federalism. The Supreme Court plays a key function in the background of American federalism state structure. The house is in charge of explaining and grasping the American Constitution, determining how the balance of power between the central government and the state government is impacted. Any threshold of power formulated within the federal administration, or state administration, could only be permitted by prior Supreme Court decisions or judicial decisions. Federalism refers to the form of administration in which the national government is able to work collectively with smaller governments and sometimes have the final verdict in what laws to create and impose, without the other administration meddling in the process (Riker, 2017).
