But does this resurgence of religion have any implications for the workplace, where we would expect greater secularization as a result of expanding capitalism? This God is said to feel our pain, to suffer with us; yet he remains impotent to introduce any changes in how his own universe operates.” The end of formal apartheid did force the South African churches to admit, says Burridge, that “the Bible does not lend itself to be a blueprint for any political agenda.” While this may seem “vague and commonplace to outsiders, but within the ranks of the Church it represented a seismic shift in theological thinking.” This is very sobering for the problem of Christian faith-communities faced with the learning challenge of translating from religious discourse into secular discourse and action.

The Bible - as Douma points out - is a lamp and sheds light, but we must still use our heart, soul, understanding, and strength in the proper way. Christian morality does not assume that certain actions are inherently right or wrong, but looks for guidance from the scriptures. Non-scriptural arguments I turn now to a brief consideration of some non-biblical elements of Christian thought on sex and relationships. Neither the problem of authority nor the problem of knowledge finds a viable answer in fallen thought.

I can imagine, though, that inter-species marriage relationships might be possible if we met a sentient alien race that was similar enough to our own (even though theirs may have multiple genders, or no gender). Although various terms are used, there is a consistency in what is meant. The Conservative Protestant grand narrative is transposed to understand work as an opposition of sinful (self-interested, dishonest, hedonistic, power-hungry) workers and economic structures (pursuit of profit above all) versus warm, authentic relationships built on trust, caring, and honesty.

Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress adopted the former position, Bishop Tutu the latter. Basically, a worldview is a view of the world — a mental model of reality, a set of theories (believed by a person or a community) about what exists, how and why things happen, and what it means — that is used for living in the world, that serves as a foundation for our thoughts, decisions, and actions. Christian ethics does not change from society to society, as secular moral codes may, since Christians are a single group adhering to the ethical code of the Bible, rather than multiple sects adhering to differing laws and customs.

Within the Bible, this author is convinced that there are fundamental differences between the Old Testament and the New Testament which must be born carefully in mind. It has been an important contribution of this way of thinking about ethics that issues of justice have been on the political agenda. At the simplest, morals are about the 'rules' we create for ourselves (or that the Bible creates for us). We shall rejoice that God has found many channels for the disclosure of truth to men and that these channels include the best rational thought of the ages on the nature and aims of the good life.
