As Paul tells it ...

Ethical Issues

The reader’s patience is requested in the fact that these Ethical Issues pages are in effect a kind of sub-Web, “piggy-backing” on the principal Web,, and thus that the As Paul Tells It . . . designation at the top of each page is not quite accurate. The Ethical Issues Home Page is readily accessible by clicking on Contents, to be found at the top and bottom of each page.



These pages of Ethical Issues are intended to supplement discussions of ethical questions in the principal web As Paul Tells It . . . and in the companion web Jesus Traditions. This sub-Web is also intended in a modest way to meet the need for a broader discussion of moral issues, both perennial and topical. While the subjects addressed fall in the general area of Christian ethics, we do of necessity venture into the field of ethics, as distinguished from Christian ethics, and into matters theological and even philosophical.
