What is the difference between ethics and morals? Can you teach these two concepts without God? Today we’re learning why these two terms matter to Christians. The word ethics comes from ethos, which means “animal stall.” Morals comes from mores, which means “shifting.”
The National Study of Youth and Religion reveals a theological fault line running underneath American churches: Adhering to a do-good, feel-good spirituality has little to do with a Triune God of Christian tradition, and even less to do with loving Jesus Christ enough to follow Him into the world.
Our special guest Dave Wager is here with some insights on how our Christian tradition has veered off the narrow path onto a wide road of secularism that redefines our faith. Dave is the author of several books and the president of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible College in northern Wisconsin.
