What are Christian ethics? A Christian’s ethics should originate within the boundaries of Christianity, and likewise, the sole basis for ethical practices and behaviors should be built upon the theological threshold of God, the Lordship of Christ his Son, and the hope of glory in habituating the new kingdom.
Ministerial Ethics in the 21st Century answers fundamental questions about Christian ethics, explaining what it means to be ethical in ministry. Author Antwon C. Lewis also helps us understand what constitutes a healthy character and what role discernment plays in various ethical situations. Christian leaders will especially benefit from this study, as they can have their moral principles be influenced by scriptural standards—and not determine right or wrong based on their own value system.
A crisis in today’s society does indeed exist—and our present world is challenged with a need for ministerial ethics. Therefore, thorough research and investigation are needed, and Ministerial Ethics in the 21st Century will help ameliorate continued hypocrisy and poor ministerial integrity in the church.
