However, this truthfulness of God does not yet find its counterpart in a similar absolute truthfulness of man. Similarly, in the shadow of the Buddha, the five brothers of Kondanna become silent, honest, and humble. The second precept is that each of us should be willing to lay down our natural rights to everything to the extent that others are also willing, and Hobbes concludes with the need to subordinate ourselves to a sovereign who alone will be able to secure peace.

In Praise of Virtue: An Exploration of the Virtues in a Christian Context. Additionally, an organization cannot maintain high ethical standards without mechanisms for eliminating unethical behavior. In Genesis, we see God's divine plan for the family. Though a world-view which reduces all of reality to one ultimate principle has proved attractive in all eras, and though such a system may appear amenable to Christianity suggesting as it does a supreme being, in reality such a system destroys the basis for ethical knowledge and departs from a Christian and Trinitarian epistemology.

Or, working with the same model but from the other direction, one could say that particular judgments can reveal a person's functioning moral rules. At first there is not sharp distinction between the call from the Absolute and that coming from one’s fellowmen. There are, however, at least two moral philosophies that are not welcome in the existential house: (1) Behaviorism, with its absolute emphasis on chemical and physical forces in man and his environment in determining moral conduct, and (2) New Testament Christianity, with its emphasis on the eternal principles and definite standards of moral conduct for all ages as long as man lives on the earth.

It would also surely agree that man is not and cannot be omniscient and that if this were necessary, despair would be in order. The understanding of where the “wounding edge” separating one person from another lies was different in various societies and in various periods. The same Spirit also makes us continuously present to Christ. The dignity of the poor and the oppressed must be conferred upon them-that is, imputed to them-even though it runs contrary to their experience up to now.

The Christian must acknowledge that human life is a gift from God (Acts 17:25; 1 Tim. 6:13). Therefore Christian morality and ethical decisions are based on LOVE that has its source in God.

Did you accept Me as your personal standard of character? Consider the parent who confronts a child with tough love when everyone else can see that support is most needed now. The connection between ethics and dogmatics is also otherwise important. If Johnny needs to become more sensitive to other people, his parents may pick one neighbourhood to live in with more children rather than another with fewer; if Mary should become more studious, her parents will look for the school that successfully helps students to acquire right study habits; if Tommy is insecure, his parents will try to find ways that as a family they can help Tommy to grow in confidence.

But when I write that there is an interplay between apologetics and ethics, I am not just referring to the call to godly character anticipated by 1 Peter 3:15 and many other passages in the Bible. For example, 'He who loves his neighbour has fulfilled the law. .. Remember, living the Christian life through your actions will show others that God must be working in your life.
