The Law tells people what and what not to do and the consequences for failing to do the right things that God wants us to do. Since the law is reflected upon God’s holly image, it is good. “Though it threatens and accuses sinners, the Law does so as part of God’s plan to reveal our sin and our consequent need for salvation” (Maas, 40). Therefore, the law gears people towards the image that God longs for us to display. Although one cannot be completely righteous, there is a possibility of coming close to it by following the goodness of God.
At the same time there are things that we can do to try and reach people in some situations. It is our job to know the difference and stand up where we can but not force our own morals and ethical principles on everyone we come in contact with. One issue that is very prevalent in the world today and all through out the history or the earth is the issue or war and combatancy. Now as Christians we know the bible says, “Thou shall not kill,” but is this issue really that simple? If we just took that stance and said that as Christians we shouldn’t go to war then our country and the world we live in would suffer.
Our flesh will get in the way of the authority of the scripture as well as the meaning of scripture. When we realize, we are wrong, we want to take what the Bible says about our actions and try to justify them. When bad things happen in our lives and we do not understand why, we feel like we can change what God says about himself to make us feel better. We justify our turning from Him when times get tough by saying that if He was a good God then He would not allow this to happen. This creates a problem of no progress.
When I will be open to people that would have problems, I will help the person, but not the problem. Second, I was aware that I couldn’t force the other person to change.

Integrity means the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. I believe that once a lawyer takes the oath to uphold the law, integrity should become their number one priority. All the ethics’ codes that lawyers must stand by have clear guidelines and disciplinary consequences if not upheld. The opposite of integrity for a lawyer is corruption. Corruption is defined as dishonest or fraudulent conduct by those in power.
The therapist profession requires, for its regular exercise, a minimum of confidence on the part of civil society whose service is exercised. Who comes to a professional is the need to reveal aspects of his personal life that are intimate, and as such should not be disclosed to the public. The exercise of the profession should orientate them to improve, not harm, the professional secrecy is an essential element of social balance, in order to maintain the necessary privacy of individuals and to ensure their confidence in the professional therapists. Professional secrecy should be saved and never violated, but, professional secrecy cannot serve as a pretext to cover up acts that violate direct, serious and imminent against the common good and general
You need to stand up for your beliefs and show them that you are different. This means you can't be afraid to say no, that's not right, but remember you can't resist temptations on your own, you need God working openly in your life. If you find a good group of Christians, it will also help you to have someone to hold you accountable and fellowship with.
To understand the basis of the ethics that Christians live by the Biblical story must be interpreted. The Bible passes judgement on many things that Christians would come into contact with at some point in their lives. These things include cases such as; abortion, contraception, euthanasia and homosexuality. All of which are negatively referred to in the Bible. However authority today views these issues differently because they use secular ethics in conjunction with their decision making.
“For I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this I believe, I should not understand” –Saint Anselm (p. 69). Also in this chapter, Entwistle explores epistemology, defining it as, “the sub discipline of philosophy that is dedicated to the study of the grounds and nature of knowledge” (p. ... ... middle of paper ... ...d it imperative to understand the world from different prospective. I also find it important to have knowledge and experience in the area of psychology and theology. As a Christian more importantly than anything I have to be a light for others to follow.
The Idea of Morality Cannot Work Without the Existence of God Morality is the set of concepts about wha tis good or bad, right or wrong, in human charater or conduct. God demands that moral judgements are universal and based on religion. However, other schools of thought, e.g. the ideology of Anarchy, claim that if this 'morality made by god' is the case, then 'each person is his own god'. We must first understand how morality 'works' and then see if this method of working is possible without the existence of God.
