Bauckham, Richard. 'Chapter 9: The Genesis Flood and the Nuclear Holocaust.' The Bible in Politics: How to Read the Bible Politically. Comprehending Power in Christian Social Ethics. For example on adultery he argues �if we allow of adulterous connections, whenever they can hope to escape detection � we leave the husband no other security for his wife�s chastity, than in her want of opportunity or temptation; which would probably either deter men from marrying, or render marriage a state of such jealousy and alarm to the husband, as must end in the slavery and confinement of the wife�.

As Paul reasons with the Corinthians about the level of their moral attitudes and conduct, he bases his plea on the fact that they are children of God and are partakers of the divine nature. We study Christian Ethic, which include Plato and Aristoles thoughts, to teach us what philosophers call the Natural Law.

In this context, the moral life is no longer about transformation, but about conformity to nature and thereby to the will of the Maker. The ovum is that of the natural mother and the sperm is that of the natural father so that the child is truly that of the parents in both the genetic and social sense.

These laws were good for their situation, but it is another question as to whether those same laws are good for us today in our situations.
