Moral Theology

The moral theology is a branch of theology , dealing with good and evil in human behavior . Most religions have a component moral (we speak because of religious morality as opposed to the secular moral ), and address the problem of ethics approaches historically dominated by secular ethics. From a theological point of view religions, to the extent that ethics is derived from revealed truth from divine sources, ethics is studied as a branch of theology. Many [ who? ] Believe that the Golden Rule , which teaches people to “treat others as you want to be treated” is a common denominator in many of the major moral codes and religions.

The Christian ethics lies in the practice of good and of good works, as mandated by Jesus Christ in the Gospel.

It should be noted that in the Lutheran culture of the Nordic countries it is believed that man is not good in himself and that he needs God to get rid of his wrongdoing.

The Hebrew Bible as a whole does not allow us to see its teachings on biblical ethics as a single unit. Even so, with a detailed study, a number of ethical issues can be discovered. [ Citation needed ]

Prescriptive statements, for example, are found everywhere, just as you have sanctification and relations of covenant with God and the religious community itself.
