Christian Ethics

Have you ever wondered how we make ethical decisions, especially in a Christian context? Do we use the Bible as a rule book, or throw away rules and base it all our decisions on love, or perhaps we are pragmatic and think about results.. How do you make decisions?

Do you use the RULES route
or the MOTIVES route
or the RESULTS route?

From January the Ashendon Home group will be looking at an Introduction to Christian Ethics using material from ICES. These will be the topics:
 14th Jan- Week 1 Introduction to three routes of ethical decision making.
