  • Christian moral principle-The Bible, Church + reason
    • Magesterium
      • Collective wisdom and authority
      • We must use reason, Bible and the Church otherwise we will make mistakes
    • Natural law
      • Primary precepts are known by all but reason alone isn't enough
      • We are innately reasonable creatures and in Romans 2;15 it says "For down in their hearts they know right from wrong"
    • Ethical Heteronomy
      • Can be assessed through natural world, church authority and reason
    • Bible
      • The Bible is central  but not alone
      • Difficult to interpret
      • Moral principles are fluid and adapt overtime whereas the Bible is rigid, however it can be adapted w/ church doctrine and reason
