Standards of morality Humanist morality focuses on improving conditions for ourselves, our families, our communities the whole of humanity.

Moral legislation over the years has steadily eroded because antinomian liberal leaders, claiming that morality cannot be legislated, have rejected biblical standards of morality in favor of personal choice or private morality.

If we are to make a case for a Christian view of life, we must come to grips with our own changing mores and do a better job of distinguishing them from God’s unchanging moral standards.

Moral Absolutes: Black and White. At the root of the problem of contemporary ethics is the phenomenon of moral relativism. The basic idea of moral relativism.

Humanism deals with morality’s usefulness in this world, and tackles tough ethical questions about making moral rules (and legal laws) work better for everyone. Humanism is positive and progressive, and requires our best efforts.

We are all players in the game of life. Social morality is already here, and you are on its field. The Source of Morality Secular humanism declares that moral values emanate exclusively from human experience; that “Ethics is autonomous and situational needing no theological or ideological sanction;”13 and that “Critical Intelligence is the best method that humanity has for resolving problems,” since reason is balanced with.

Morality has always been a problem for secular humanism and its various forms. In recent times some have tried to address this major problem, but their attempts fail miserably.

Secular humanism is a religion and a philosophy of life which views man as the supreme being of the universe. It rejects the existence of God and the supernatural.

It sees moral values as relative and changing and varying from person to person. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths.

Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum. If we can find cross-cultural, universally binding moral standards, this is enormously consequential.

For then we can reasonably infer that moral standards exist above and beyond those cultures. In the appendix to the Abolition of Man, C. Lewis lists many common values and duties that span all of history and culture. This book argues that moral theology has yet to embrace the recommendations of the Second Vatican Council concerning the ways in which it is to be renewed.

One of the reasons for this is the lack of consensus between theologians regarding the nature, content and uniqueness of Christian morality. A moral standard refers to the norms which we have about the types of actions which we believe to be morally acceptable and morally unacceptable.

Specifically, moral standards deal with matters which can either seriously harm or seriously benefit human beings. The validity of moral standards comes from the line of reasoning that was taken to back or support them, and thus are not.

The great moral questions of today are all answered in the Bible. God's people discredit themselves and dishonor God when they complain the moral standard is too high. What the church ought to do is to do their best to bring their lives up to the standard.

The church should never allow compromise on God's moral. Lists about: Books That Make You Go Hmm, The Psychology of Morality, Quintessential Philosophy, Essential Readings in the Cognitive Science of Religion.

In truth, morality, like God, is a human creation. Even believers have to decide which of the values found in the Torah or the Bible or the Quran they accept, and which they reject. What God provides is not the source of moral values but, if you like, the ethical concrete in which those values are set.

Secular ethics refers to any ethical system that does not draw on the supernatural, and includes humanism, secularism and freethinking. A classical example of literature on secular ethics is the Kural text, authored by the ancient Tamil Indian philosopher Valluvar who lived during the 1st century BCE.

Part 2 critiques the theistic foundations of morality (and Christianity in particular). In his introduction to Christian ethics (chapter 6), Martin presents objections to theism to undercut the basis for Christian ethics. Then he discusses the divine command theory (the “extreme” and “modified” versions) in chapters 7.

The moral absolutes rest upon God's character. The moral commands He has given to men are an expression of His character. Men as created in His image are to live by choice on the basis of what God is. The standards of morality are determined by what conforms to His character, while those things which do not conform are immoral.

Now we go on to chapter nineteen to consider another point. Here, the first point that is raised does not concern legality, but a high standard of morality.
