A CHRISTIAN ETHICS OF RESPONSIBILITY: DOES IT PROVIDE AN ADEQUATE THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK FOR DEALING WITH ISSUES OF PUBLIC MORALITY?

Etienne de Villiers

Abstract


There is at present considerable confusion in church and theological circles in
South Africa about the most appropriate approach to issues of public morality. In
the article the inadequacy of prevalent approaches is pointed out. The claim that a
Christian Ethics of Responsibility does provide an adequate theoretical framework
for dealing with such issues is also discussed. A proposal is made on how the conceptual
cogency of Christian discussions on an Ethics of Responsibility can be
improved. The article concludes with the discussion of ways in which a Christian
Ethics of Responsibility can deal with issues of public morality.
