  • Rights & Responsibilities
    • Christians and the Bible
      • Sermon  on the Mount
        • You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. 5 No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. 6 In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.
        • You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.
        • So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.
        • God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers.
        • leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God.
        • Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.
        • But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
        • And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?
        • But I say, do not resist an evil person! If someone slaps you on the right cheek, offer the other cheek also.
        • Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.
        • Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
        • Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
        • Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
        • But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!
        • And if your hand—even your stronger hand —causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.
      • Exodux
        • You must not make for yourself an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea.
        • You must not have any other god but me.
        • You must not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God who will not tolerate your affection for any other gods.
        • I am the Lord your God, who rescued you from the land of Egypt, the place of your slavery.
        • You must not misuse the name of the Lord your God.
        • But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands.
    • Christians and the Variety of Moral Authorities
      • Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's.
      • Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.
    • Christians and Conscience
      • Pray for us, for our conscience is clear and we want to live honorably in everything we do.
      • “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.” (Persecuting, anyone who's never sinned throw first stone)
    • Christian Attitudes to Genetic Engineering
      • You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
      • Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
      • Accept the way God does things, for who can straighten what he has made crooked?
      • Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God?
    • Christians and Situation Ethics
      • There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
      • This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you.
      • Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.
    • Christian Teachings on Moral Duties and Responsibilities

      • And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.
      • Don’t be afraid,” Moses answered them, “for God has come in this way to test you, and so that your fear of him will keep you from sinning!
      • Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing?
      • Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you.
