The Divine Command Theory And Relativism

- The Divine Command Theory and Relativism make strong claims on the source of morality. Robert C.

The Doctrine Of The Divine Command Theory

- It seems as if the constant argument of how much religion should play a role in our lives will never end. The Divine Command Theory is a theory in which one may receive a revelation from God telling them that doing a certain thing is good. This meta-ethical theory states that actions are only good if God deems they are good. This statement poses various advantages, disadvantages, and arguments as to whether we should conduct our morality based upon the acceptance of a higher being. Many religions are based upon the idea of reward and punishment for good and bad deeds, respectively, and this is a great problem that critics bring to the front....   [tags: God, Morality, Good and evil, Immanuel Kant]

The Divine Command Theory : An Argument

- Divine Command Theory: (When employing the DCT in an argument, you must always cite a specific source ie. scripture, doctrine etc. to validate your claim.) The Divine Command Theory says that any action, whether good or bad, is morally right if God is the one commanding the action (Vaughn 71). This theory belongs to the nonconsequentialist theory— an ethical theory that states that right and wrong are not determined by the consequences of an action (Vaughn 71). The Divine Command Theory is a Nonconsequentialist Theory because God is the source of truth and the rightness and wrongness of the action is based on the accepted rule of God’s words....   [tags: Morality, Ethics, Philosophy, Immanuel Kant]

On Euthyphro's Dilemma and Divine Command

- ... Bertrand Russell argues If you are quite sure there is a difference between right and wrong, you are then in this situation: Is that difference due to God's fiat or is it not. If it is due to God's fiat, then for God Himself there is no difference between right and wrong, and it is no longer a significant statement to say that God is good If you are going to say, as theologians do, that God is good, you must then say that right and wrong have some meaning which is independent of God's fiat, because God's fiats are good and not good independently of the mere fact that he made them (12).Zellner 4 Russell brings up a valid point; To say that God is good, as was presupposed earlier, would be...   [tags: Plato, Socrates, philosophy]

The Doctrine Of The Divine Command Theory

- Cultures that hold strong beliefs toward a specific God may view all commands as morally right due to a God’s holy goodness, but does being morally right necessarily make the command ethically correct. Without a belief in God(s), it is plausible for an individual to be ethically right and therefore punishment will not occur without the guidance of a God. According to the Divine Command Theory (DCT), actions can be morally right or wrong simply because God commands or forbids them. Cultures that hold strong beliefs in Gods, would view this as morally acceptable because when God commands or forbids actions, they are to be obeyed....   [tags: Religion, Morality, Ethics, Blood transfusion]

- According to John Locke, all men are born in a state of freedom. This freedom, however, only emerges under the command of law, creating an interesting tension between individual liberties and the command of government. In his work Second Treatise of Government, Locke examines the construction of the social contract by resolving the tension between these two doctrines. Freedom, to Locke, is the motivating force behind the social contract: there is no freedom without law.
