Martin Luther famously said we need 3 conversions — heart, mind and purse. In so doing he raises an ethical question — the role of money.
There are many such questions.
Simply put, Christian ethics applies the framework of our faith to the demands and choices of human existence.
- It is as simple as applying what we believe with day-to-day decisions.
- It is as complex as the response of a movement to multi-layered global issues.
We can easily make ethical choices based on feelings, cultural pressure or the avoidance of discomfort. In contrast the Christian faith provides us with the resources of Scripture, the life of Jesus and Kingdom principles.
In this series Ethically Speaking will seek to serve as a catalyst in our thinking on subjects from alcohol to pornography, from refugees to racism.
Of this we can be assured, ethically strong men, women and movements change the world for good.
I want to be there in that number. Don’t you?
