  • THE DOCTRINE OF CHRISTIAN ETHICS A MINISTERS MORAL DUTY 1
  • CODE OF ETHICS• The highest code of ethics is the system of moral teaching inculcated by Christ, and which represents Christianity on its practical side, as carried out in private, social, and communal life.• Biblical ethics brings us to the outward manifestation of the grace of God. We are showing believers the power that we possess to be morally pure in Christ. Our righteousness must stand pure before the eyes of men. Isaiah 54:14, Matthew 6:33 2
  • ETHICS• Ethics: Grk (ēthikē, from ēthikos) word means character and is connected with custom or habit. Moral: Latin (mores) meaning habits or customs. Thus moral philosophy deals with right conduct, ethical duty, virtue.• Right: Latin (rectus) implying straight or according to rule. The supreme good, is the supreme end at which we aim. Ethics should be the direction of the believers life. 3
  • THE GREATEST GOOD• Christian ethics means the greatest good and highest morality comes from the will of God as it is revealed in the Bible. Ethics is a standard of character, and God’s standard for us is Jesus Christ. Philippians 2:5, 2Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 12:2• God has not a standard for us, but He intends for Christians to become the standard. By giving believers a list of requirements. Matthew 5:14- 16, 2Corithians 5:20, 1Thessalonians 4:1, 1Corithians 4:13, Romans 12:12, Ephesians 4:12, Philippians 2:13 4
  • A LIFE OF HIGHEST ORDER• Christ is the perfect one from whom issues the life of highest order. He who translated virtue into holiness, duty into privilege, and opened out a goal of perfect bliss through self sacrifice. Matthew 5:17, Romans 3:31• Jesus was cognizant of sin, and of man’s guilty state, and of satanic forces arrayed against him. He knew that goodness could not be lived out unless moral evil was renounced by a penitent heart. 5
  • HEAD OF THE HUMAN RACE• As the head of the human race, Jesus enacted laws amidst human conditions, and in Himself revealed how these laws could be adapted to the needs of man. He lived perfectly for God and man, subjecting Himself to divine and human laws, in obedience to them He fulfilled all righteousness. Hebrews 5:8. 6
  • MANS CONDUCT• Within all the epistles are scattered rules and directions, covering the whole ground of private and social life. The apostles taught that as a man believes so must he behave. Galatians 5:22-23• Love must be fostered, Christ’s image must be reflected in the lives of those He saves. Romans 8:37-39• There should be no contradiction between profession and practice. What we believe will influence behavior, creed will harmonize with conduct and character. Romans 5:1-2,7-8 7
