Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Introduction to Christian Ethics

In my next few posts, I will present notes taken during my Christian Ethics class that I took last week from Dr. Russell D. Moore.

Only those notes in quotation marks are direct quotes from Dr. Moore- the rest are often re-stated in my own words. Anything the reader considers insightful or profound should be attributed to Dr. Moore's teaching, anything the reader considers confusing or erroneous should be attributed to my poor note-taking.

"The call to ethical discipleship is paramount... it has everything to do with faith... you will have people that will literally have their lives saved or lost [based on your consideration of Christian Ethics]."

Ethics = Decision making

Every person has a code of ethics.

An understanding of ethics is the basis of human law.

Mike Huckabee on the Death Penalty

An excellent answer from Mike Huckabee concerning the death penalty; Huckabee shows that, at least in this area, he has experience crucial in qualifying him to lead the executive branch of our national government. I am thankful that Huckabee also directly answered the frequent objection that being pro-life and supporting the death penalty are somehow inconsistent.

Mike Huckabee responds to evolution question

Now, I think the case can (and should) be made that the "six days" in Genesis were (at least roughly) 24-hour periods of time, but we must admit that godly, Bible-believing Christians have often left the possibility open that the "days" in Genesis 1 may refer to 'ages.' Even James P. Boyce, founder of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, offered arguments on behalf of the 'day-age' theory [see James P. Boyce, Abstract of Systematic Theology, Cape Coral, FL: Founders Press, 2006. 171-172].

All this to say- I think that Huckabee's answer was, overall, an excellent response from a Christian perspective.
