One has to do with God and the other with the Lord Jesus. And so there's always the peril of covetousness that a man covets money or that he covets power and he becomes sort of a mini-dictator. The work that has been done in ethics by most evangelicals, however, does not meet this qualification. The superego acts out of the obligation to be obedient. Christians have more explicit instructions in the New Testament to not abandon non-believing spouses, and I can't imagine why God would apply a higher standard to interracial marriages than inter-religious marriages.

In order to answer this question, we must avoid two common courses, both of which have been responsible for error. Utilitarianism provides a third illustration of the inability of fallen thinking to cope with ethical reality. Christian ethicists are not gnostics who work on first principles that are unavailable to outsiders. The ethical demands made by Jesus are incapable of fulfillment in the present existence of man. This is the implied position of Roe for the first trimester of pregnancy.

This is clearly seen in the fact that the biblical authors use teaching about the end-times to motivate Christians to live now according to the precepts and principles of the Gospel of Christ. (p. 286). Responding to these situations with wisdom is critical, not only for the professional�s credibility, but also for good therapeutic relationships and positive treatment outcomes. Freedom for Obedience: Evangelical Ethics in Contemporary Times. Both the events of Hebrew history and the interpretation the people placed upon them — notably but not exclusively the exodus from Egypt and the giving of the Covenant on Sinai, then Israel’s conquest of Canaan, her struggles with her foes, and finally the exile and return — are impregnated with the idea that the supreme Ruler of heaven and earth had in a special way chosen Israel as his people and was concerned in all their fortunes.

Call it divine lordship or divine sovereignty, the fact being pointed to is that God has made man and therefore owns man. No more ultimate value than life can be conceived for any given organism when life is defined as the fullness of existence appropriate to one’s nature. See Yehuda Bauer, Rethinking the Holocaust (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2001), 262. There is, nevertheless, an eschatological element in, and even basis for, the ethic of Jesus. This would require the unsettling of personal and communal perceptions; this can only happen if critical theoretical tools that reveal the extent to which the dominant ideology permeates our thinking are embraced.

Even though the moral beliefs and circumstances of their own societies constitute the immediate focus of their philosophical activities—for human experience is most directly felt within some specific social or cultural context—nevertheless, moral philosophers do not think or imply at all that the results of their reflective activities are to be tethered to their own societies as such. This tradition is based on the belief in a personal God who cares about people, and made each person in the divine image-endowed with inherent value, worth and dignity.
