Christian Ethics Booklet: AS Religious Studies

Basically this is a booklet on Christian Ethics for AS ethics (religious studies). Some is my own work, some is copied out of textbooks such as ethical theory by Mel Thompson, ethical studies by Robert Bowie and OCR Religious Studies; Philosophy and Ethics AS by Taylor, Eyre and Knight (these are all really good books if you want more detail). The only section I haven't written about in here is Situation Ethics, which I have done another booklet for. Enjoy :)

This ethical code also appears to have much in common with Christianity because it places
great emphasis on treating people as an end in themselves. Kant's universality also seems to
