Such contributions might be either initially 'subversive' or directly constructive. Here Daniel Finn reviews the insights provided by a large number of texts, from the Bible and the early church, to the Middle Ages and the Protestant Reformation, to treatments of the subject in the last century.

For instance, by the legal provisions of the Pentateuch, adultery was punished by death (Lev. 20:10), whereas today it is not regarded as a legal offence in most states.

But He never denied the sanctity of the Sabbath by asserting that it was, under ordinary circumstances, a proper time to gather corn. A similar view recurs substantially in the writings of Wilhelm Wundt and, to a certain extent, in those of the pessimist, Edward von Hartmann, though the latter regards culture and progress merely as means to the ultimate end, which, according to him, consists in delivering the Absolute from the torment of existence. As for the case of the assassin, many ideologists would no doubt argue that, in view of the disastrous consequences likely to ensue upon the telling of the truth, there is sufficient reason for deceiving the murderer by telling an untruth.

And it is this battle of Titans that our nurses and governesses try to compose with their lullaby song of Heaven."10 These supposedly profound words, which pretentiously offer a clue to the meaning of "the evolution of culture" throw little light on the actual human situation.

This is the root of all imperialism in man and explains why the restricted predatory impulses of the animal world are transmuted into the boundless imperial ambitions of human life.

If, as Birch and Rasmussen contend, there is an emerging consensus between biblical scholars and Christian ethicists that the Bible is somehow normative, [4] what is the nature of that authority? In order for something to come out right, every ingredient has to be measured exactly, prepared correctly and cooked properly. Should our principles be modified because of the situation?

Resentment against injustice is both the basis, and the egoistic corruption of, all forms of corrective justice. It protects the role of physicians as the ones who use their knowledge of the body and diseases to cure or comfort patients rather than to kill them. Half an hour later, someone thought to become a professional and the two misspellings were corrected.
