Religion and Morality
Dewi Zephaniah Phillips
Macmillan, 1996 - Christian ethics - 355 pages
Reflection on religion involves consideration of its relation to morality. When great evil is done to human beings, we may feel that something absolute has been violated. Can that sense, which is related to gratitude for existence, be expressed without religious concepts? Can we express central religious concerns, such as losing the self, while abandoning any religious metaphysics? Is moral obligation itself dependent on divine commands of it is to be objective, or is moraltiy not only independent of religion, but its accuser if God is said to allow horrendous evils? In any case, what happens to the absolute claims of religion in what is undeniably, a morally pluralistic world?
