Applying the Christian Ethic to Specific Issues
We live in an age of unprecedented moral confusion. The public consensus on basic moral issues—the fruit of Christian influence on Western civilization—has been tragically eroded. As pragmatism and relativism reign supreme, we are reliving the period when “everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judg. 21:25). In the midst of this fog, the Christian faith presents us with a coherent worldview that provides straightforward direction on central ethical questions. In this article, we will consider how the Christian ethic speaks to a number of hotly contested issues of our time.
