"So much is changing today in regard to the control of life and death and the understanding of human sexuality, some may think it impossible to address these topics from a Christian perspective. We strongly disagree. Scripture sets forth enough principles that it is possible to evaluate contemporary practices in light of biblical teaching. Moreover, it is not only possible to address these matters biblically—it is mandatory to do so. As Christians we must speak to these topics." Two respected theological spokesmen present here a carefully reasoned, thoroughly biblical discussion of basic ethical issues confronting church and society. An invaluable resource for all who desire to become better prepared to face and resolve the moral dilemmas of our day.
“In sum, an agent acts morally if he acts freely, does an act that is right to do, and does it with the sole motivation of doing his duty.” (Page 22)
“Morally supererogatory deeds are not duties but are praiseworthy, because they produce good which goes beyond what duty demands.” (Page 20)
“To say that an action is morally permissible means one may do it or refrain from it without incurring any moral guilt.” (Page 20)
“Motivation, then, is crucial in determining whether someone acts morally, but finally, for an agent to act morally, he must do an act which is morally right to do.” (Page 22)
“Third, Can I do it without being a stumbling block to my brother or sister in Christ?” (Page 44)
