Christian morality consists of living one’s life with guidance and inspiration from the Christian scriptures and traditions. Most Christian ethicists agree that the sources for doing ethics include revelation (scripture) and tradition, as well as human reason and experience.
What is the meaning and importance of Christian morality?
These moral decisions revolve around things like how we chose to dress, spend our money, relate to our loved ones, and consider personal aspects like sex, care for our bodies, or what we choose for entertainment.
