SOR II presentation assignment
Christians are expected to place considerable value on the ethical teachings of the tradition in determining their response to a wide range of issues. General ethical guidance is provided by the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes and the Golden Rule, which love. The life and ministry of Jesus provides a model for life action of Christians. This is reflected in the Christian ethos of caring for the needy and the vulnerable. Specific guidance is also provided in relation to contemporary ethical issues such as sexual morality, bioethics, international economics, ecological concerns and the use of force in international conflicts. Generally speaking, Christian ethical teaching in areas such as sexual morality and bioethics have been in line with conservative forces in society. Ethical teaching on issues of economic, ecological and military significance are more in line with progressive elements in society. This diversity makes it difficult to gauge the effect of Christian ethical teaching in an overall sense.

The third commandment relates to the importance of observing the Sabbath and keeping it sacred for God. The nature of the relationship between God and human beings mirrors the path that human beings should take when relating and interacting with each other. The remaining seven commandments present guidelines for human interaction and how human beings should treat each other. These commandments emphasise the importance of human life and the need to respect family and personal integrity.
The Ten Commandments are a succinct summary of Christian ethics. They are frequently used as a framework for the key principles of Christian ethics. The Ten Commandments were not explicitly prominent in the teaching of the early Church possibly because Jesus did not explicitly cite each of the commandments. However, he did use the Ten Commandments as a backdrop for his own ethical teachings. Not only did he refer to and make...
