Ethics and the presence of God
When our reasoning is grounded in and directed by this central truth, we will approach ethics not as what we might do to bring God near or to keep him near, but as our grateful response to the reality of God's presence with us, in the person of Jesus, through the Holy Spirit. This incarnational and Trinitarian understanding of Christian ethics is unpacked in several Surprising God posts:
- We were made for Communion with God
- Trinitarian ethics: How then shall we live?
- Barth's Theology of Relations
- God, Freedom and Human Dignity
- Ethics and the Holy Spirit as Creator
- Ethics and the Holy Spirit as Reconciler
- Ethics and the Holy Spirit as Redeemer
- Ethics and cultural context
- Ethics--getting real
- Ethics and dualism
- Trinitarian ethics: Why are we gendered beings?
- A return to deep living (Trinitarian ethics)
- Christian ethics: about being neighbor
- Moral police or moral advocates?
