Sample text

They do not logically commit those who agree with them to any particular school of eschato[ogual interpretation. Premillennialists, arnillennialists, and postmillennialists can all harmonize this normative perspective with their views of history and God’s kingdom. While the author has definite views in eschatology, they are not the subject SPECIFICATION OF PURPOSE AND POSITION 9 matter of these studies either explicitly or implicitly. It can be added that the ethical position taught here is of afoundational character.

Day by day we make decisions on how to act, we form attitudes and cultivate emotions, we set goals for ourselves and try to attain them. We do these things individually, as well as in various groups: our family, friends, church, community, occupation, state. In all of these contexts the kind of people we are, the kind of goals we have, and the kind of rules we observe in decision-making are ethical matters. AU human behavior and character is subject to appraisal according to moral value; every one of our attainments (whether they be aims that are fulfilled or character traits that are developed) and every one of our actions (whether they be mental, verbal, or bodily behavior) expresses an unspoken code of right and wrong.

The one thing shared by all schools of modem ethics is an antipathy to taking moral direction from the Bible, for to do so is viewed as outdated, ignorant, unreasonable, prejudicial, undemocratic, and impractical. Being uncomfortable and irritated by the holy requirements of God’s law for every aspect of human conduct, “modern” men reject this shackle upon their personal liberty and desires, and they ridicule its provisions for social justice.
