Journal of Religious Ethics 3 (2):255 - 269 (1975)
Carney and Graber have recently claimed that religious ethics can have its ultimate foundation in charismatic divine love and grace, without logically presupposing independent ethical principles. While their defense of the autonomy of religious ethics is successful against many typical philosophical critiques, their derivation of ethical principles from divine realities is not essentially but only contextually religious. Since divine elements make no crucial difference to that derivation, religious ethics contains essentially the same derivation of ethical principles from facts as does non-religious ethics. Religious ethics, however, should not resist this conclusion, since the conclusion does not weaken any of its important functions.
