In this introduction to the study and practice of Christian ethics, the student will examine philosophical and theological backgrounds for ethics, the role of biblical authority, and the
historical relation between church and culture to develop a valid method of moral decision-making, examine the importance of ministerial ethics, evaluate ethical issues, and lead
the church in applying the gospel to life.
To provide moral leadership by modeling Christian character and communicating ethical truth, students, by the end of the course, should:
1. Understand the biblical and philosophical basis for a Christian ethic
2. Be able to apply a Christian ethic to contemporary issues
3. Be able to communicate Christian ethical and moral truths competently and convincingly
