Christian Ethics

Ethics examines our beliefs about right and wrong. Ethical decisions are not only required when we confront major ethical dilemmas, but are a part of everyday life. Christian ethics is about how the beliefs, values and practices of Christianity provide guidance in decisions about right and wrong. For Christians, the Bible should play an important role in such decisions, but this is sometimes not the case. For this reason, I have provided a reading schedule and comments on various passages to show how becoming more familiar with the Bible can help with Christian ethics.
