Persuasive Ethics

Description

Many non-Christians have a sense that Christianity is about ethics but are also frightened that we are seeking to impose our strict ethical system upon them, whilst at the same time being hypocrites ourselves. For this reason, many Christians tend to shy away from ethics when seeking to communicate the Gospel. Rather than this helping in our communication of the Gospel, it has left many with the impression that Christians are concerned about moralism and ethics through the political system. This session looks at how we avoid the traps of moralism and accusations of political power-seeking whilst using the Christian teaching about ethics to communicate Christ.
