Christian Moral Vision Sample Answer

  1. 1. Outline what is meant by Christian Moral Vision. Christian Moral Vision Moral vision is an awareness of what is right and wrong. Christian moral vision is an awareness of what is right and wrong influenced by Christian faith. Jesus is the founder of Christianity and Christian moral vision comes from him. Key features of Christian moral vision are the teaching of Jesus and the life of Jesus. One of the great teachings of Jesus is the commandment to love. One day when he was teaching he was asked what Jewish commandment was the most important and he answered : “ the most important one is this ---- Love the lord your God and love your neighbour as yourself” Therefore when faced with moral decisions Christians will always do what God wants and put the well-being of other people first. The Sermon on the Mount in which Jesus outlined the Beatitudes is also a key feature of Christian Moral Vision. This also challenges Christians on how they should act when faced with a moral decision. In the parables Jesus told people how to act. In the Good Samaritan Jesus challenged the Jewish people to consider everyone your neighbour and treat them with love and respect. In the Miracles Jesus showed people how they should treat other. He healed blind Bartimaeus . By healing people he allowed them back into society again and this enabled them to be equals with others in their communities. In table-fellowship Jesus ate with people like tax collectors. This challenged people to include everyone at their table. The moral vision of a Christian will be influenced by these factors. Christians will always try to take into account the views of Jesus when facing a moral decision.
