Ways of Moral Decision Making

There is no easy answer to this question, as there is so much diversity within Christianity. Some Christians will base their ethical decisions solely on the Bible and its teachings, others will base their ethical decisions on the biblical teachings but also on Church tradition and Natural Law, others will follow a Situation Ethics approach and others will look to their conscience as a guide. As a result of this diversity, Christians have different responses to ethical issues, whether it is in the field of medical research and developments or business practice and economics. It is important to understand not only what Christians think on different ethical issues but also why they think as they do and the basis of their ideas.
