III. Christian ethics: Helen Oppenheimer

Religious Studies 5 (2):163-171 (1969)

I have been asked to consider two questions: How Christian ‘oughts’ are related to Christian ‘is-es’, and, What does Christianity take flourishing to be? The background to these questions is that Christian ethics have traditionally been taken, both by supporters and opponents, as au ethic of creature-hood, sometimes quite crudely conceived. It is a sketch, but by no means a caricature, of a great deal of standard Christian thinking, to depict it as answering the two questions as follows: God is your Creator: therefore you ought to obey him. The end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him for ever.
