Wayne Meeks, “Morals and Community,” ch. 1 in The Origins of Christian Morality, pp.1-17. You mention the idea of mixed couples being obligated to split up (whether it’s divorce or annulment). It is a key insight in Steve Garber's important Fabric of Faithfulness and, while not exactly the same, seeps out of Walt Bruggeman's passionate proclamation that the biblical text shapes our prophetic imagination. They indicate that God has a purpose for every human life and makes plans for his people even before they are born.

For a period of time Catholic moral theology was more apt to forbid organ transplantation than to permit it. How do Christians decide what is right and wrong? Once again, running through the strands of feminism are differing descriptions of this moral context. He was getting ready to leave Ephesus, and in chapter 20, you don't need to look it up. If this process is followed faithfully, there can be some hope of mutuality, with some appropriation of Christian insights into secular philosophy, as there is not apt to be on any other basis.

Devlin, The Enforcement of Morals (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1965). In other words, ethics point to standards or codes of behavior expected by the group to which the individual belongs.

Other than that, all aspects of human ethics relate directly to the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. This Ministerial Code Of Ethics has withstood the test of time and is commended to be read and followed by all ministers as a high code of professional conduct. What the rest of the New Testament includes from the Book of Acts to the Revelation to John (Apocalypse) are accounts of the teaching, persecution, and history of the early church, instruction concerning baptism and what would come to be known as the Eucharist, the Lord’s supper, communion, mass, and so on, teaching about faith and works, redemption, salvation, prayer, virtue and vice, heaven and hell, and the “end times.” Not underestimating the diversity within the New Testament, such teaching appears to be articulated in the context of a good world, corrupted by sin, and yet a savior or Messiah has appeared in Jesus Christ to call persons from a life of sin to a life of fulfillment in relationship to God.

For more on this subject, see Standard, Goal, and Attitude as Perspectives on Ethics. For further reference, The Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors (Clarendon Press 1981) is recommended. Louisville, KY: Westminster/John Knox Press, 1994. What biblical principle about work would you add? The just war theory also has a long history. May not Psalm 128, for example, or the Song of Solomon, and all those Old Testament texts which celebrate joy in this creation be 'meant' as a counterpoint to the world-shunning attitudes of most New Testament writers?

While retaining sublime mystery, God has promised that the kingdom will come. He realized the implications of not only the accusations but also the consequences of his behavior. But he also has a second, quite different conception of natural law. While it shares the basic doctrinal position of the CDF and acknowledges that their pastoral principles 'are not accepted by the universal Church and therefore cannot be the binding norm of pastoral practice', it also recognizes that, as bishops, they are 'bound both to the generally valid doctrine of the Church and its unity as well as to people in existentially difficult situations' (Kelly, p. 134).

For those of us who live in the United States, the meaning of the Declaration of Independence has both a narrow and broad meaning that have been used historically. If you do, then you come up with a terrible fact that if there is no ethic, then there is no God, and if there is no God, then everything is permitted, and if everything is permitted, existence is a disaster. Suicide, for example, would be wrong since I would be treating my life as a means to the alleviation of my misery.

The notion of proper authority therefore requires thinking about what is meant by sovereignty, what is meant by the state, and what is the proper relationship between a people and its government. This gives an example, I think, of the real strengths of Deane-Drummond's work. London: Chapman, 1994. * Hoose takes four subjects, authority/dissent, sex, life/death, and punishment, and askes whether there is 'really' a consistent teaching on these issues throughout (Catholic) christian tradition. * A collection of 26 essays on basic ethics, applied ethics, interpersonal ethics and medial ethics.
