The authors give credence not only to the recently revived practice of 'case study' but they also exonerate the pastorally oriented forms of casuistry that served moral theology well until it fell to abuse.

What we mean is that the will of God expresses the nature of God. It is the nature of God as the will of God that is ultimately good. Yet since this nature of God is personal there is no sense in which we can say that the good exists in its own right. With these considerations as a background we can think of man as he first appeared upon the face of the earth , cited: And, just as Aristotle appeals in the end to the insight of the person of practical wisdom and emotional balance, so Aquinas stresses the importance of prudentia (his translation of Aristotle's phronesis}, which presupposes fortitude and temperance (the balanced emotional response in the areas of aggression and desire) download.

On the question of a historical versus a literalistic approach to the Bible I have stated my convictions elsewhere and need not here discuss the subject in detail.10 It is not a question of inspiration, for one who sees in the Bible a progressive revelation of the living God as he moves in the events of Hebrew history, the coming of Christ and the birth of the Church, accepts the Bible as the Word of God as truly as does any literalist epub.

But while thus revelational of the will of God, man’s nature, even in paradise, was never meant to function by itself. It was at once supplemented by the supernatural, external and positive expression of God’s will as its correlative. Only thus can we see how basic is the difference between the Christian and the non-Christian view of the moral nature of man in relation to ethical questions download here. It is easy to see, from what has just been said, why we ascribe a certain quality and sublime dignity to the person who fulfills all his duties, although we think of the concept of duty as implying subjection to law. There is no sublime quality in him as far as he is subject to the moral law, but there is as far as he is at the same time a maker of that very law and on that account subject to it.. .
