King James Dramatized Audio
   by A. Scourby: 1st Samuel 25
• 1 Samuel 25:3 Now the name of the man was
  Nabal; and the name of his wife Abigail: and
  she was a woman of good understanding, and
  of a beautiful countenance: but the man was
  churlish and evil in his doings; and he was of
  the house of Caleb.

          Length 7:33
Christian Ethics




Human Issues of Right and Wrong
• Dear Abby (Abigail Van Buren) says that
  anything between two consenting adults, that
  doesn’t hurt anyone, is ethical. This reflects
  the “Right is what brings pleasure” viewpoint
  of the Hedonists and the “Man is the
  Measure” viewpoint of Protagoras the Greek.
• Row vs. Wade, and, in fact all legal verdicts are
  based on “precedent,” just as the viewpoints
  of “Morals are Mores” and “The Human Race
  is the Basis of Right” define ethics.
• Democracy says “the majority rules,” as in
  Thrasymachus’ “Might is Right” viewpoint of
  ethics.
Other viewpoints include:
• Right is moderation
• Right is the Greater Good
• Right is Relative

          Aristotle believed that morality
          is found in moderation.
What is Ethics?
• Basically, ethics is a legal code of right and
  wrong. Christian ethics is very different from
  any of man’s ethics systems because it is
  based on God’s will and the Bible. Every other
  system leaves out the idea of answering to a
  higher power. Some sound pleasant, if there is
  no judgment day. But, true Christian ethics
  must be built around the one standard of the
  Bible, God’s revealed, inspired word.
Defining our own Ethics
Why can’t ethics be ascertained by each ethnic
group or determined by community demands
only?

   • This would excuse Jonestown, Woodstock,
     Waco, etc. Also, conflicts between
     communities could not be settled, and
     conflicting principles could not both be
     right if they are opposite of each other.
2 Broad Categories of Ethics:
• Deontological- “duty centered.” Rules
  determines the result, & are good regadless.
• Teleological- ends centered, such as the
  utilitarianism philosophy of usefulness. The
  result determines the rule.

        Christian ethics are deontological.
        Antinomianism - Some do not
        subscribe to rules of ethics at all.
3 Types of Antinomianism Today
• Utiliarianism makes what is useful moral.
• Existentialism claims that our highest duty
  goes beyond moral law…leaving no moral
  absolutes.
• Evolutionism changed the whole idea of right
  and wrong to “survival of the fittest.”

                Emphasizes Social
                Relationships: Go
                along to get along!
What would be a strong argument against
 this idea that whatever brings the most
             pleasure is right?
• If so, then the NAMBLA has moral grounds for using
  small children for sexual gratification.
• The gay rights groups and NAMBLA are justified in
  publishing instructions in their magazines on how to
  get into leadership positions in the BSA and schools,
  in order to practice their lifestyle.
• Internet porn would be for the greater pleasure of
  the paying majority, and moral, despite the small
  number of children who are affected by it, (not to
  mention destroyed homes.) (Hedonistic)
4 Principles of Situationism:
• “Love and justice are the same, for justice is
  love distributed; nothing else.”
• “Love wills the neighbor’s good whether we
  like him or not.”
• “Only the end justifies the means; nothing
  else.”
• “Love’s decisions are made situationally, not
  prescriptively.”
• The law of love is the one absolute.
• Situational Ethics -Written by Joseph
  Fletcher in 1966.



                      Altruistic Adultery
                      Patriotic Prostitution
                      Sacrificial Suicide
                      Acceptable Abortion
                      Merciful Murder.
Application: What life-themes do
you see in the story?
                    Just people give
                     others their due
                    Harsh attitude not
                     profitable
                    Christian men and
                     women are attracted
                     to each other
                    God repays evil
