Notably, the condemnation of research without patient consent, codified as the Nuremberg Code in 1947, transformed the interaction of physician-investigators and patients in research. Paul, however, had a conversion experience on the road to Damascus. For many people today, the Bible is simply a book used as a source for traditional values, but these beliefs are just the arbitrarily chosen beliefs of this Christian subculture.

A wellknown theologian even used John 12:8 (where Jesus said, “You will always have the poor among you.”) to prove that Christians can never totally solve the problem of poverty in society; therefore they should not attempt to solve poverty and not support social welfare.

This is called the prescriptive element in the sense that I am prescribing some specific behavior. The emphasis on actions, however, should not obscure the intensive interest Buddhist thinkers have taken in the virtues and dispositions that produce them. Their failure to pay explicit attention to divine activity leads me to raise the same objection to Christian ethicists that Langdon Gilkey raised to biblical theologians in a 1961 essay which has been called "epochal."[36] Gilkey's "Cosmology, Ontology, and the Travail of Biblical Language" originated in the inconsistency he perceived in contemporary theology which left it "half liberal and modern" in its cosmology or worldview and "half biblical and orthodox" in its theological language.[37] It would yield to scientific authority in interpreting biblical events and attribute the rescue of the Hebrew slaves to, for example, "an East wind blowing over the Reed Sea,"[38] but wanted to continue to speak of God's mighty acts in the Exodus event.

Men are presented as clearly socially superior to women. Specifically recommended are the CD-ROMs A Right to Die? The Old Testament seems to be heavily rule-based—after all, it’s called “the Law and the Prophets”—and so seems ethically deontological.
