Rule #8: Respect and don’t steal other’s property.

“You shall not steal” (Ex. 20:15). We might be tempted to think that stealing isn’t relevant to us. We know it’s wrong and we don’t do it but that just might not be the case. I was convicted of stealing when I was in college… I was stealing and I went to a Christian college. […]

Elon Musk and Ethics

I read a biography on Elon Musk awhile back. It was fascinating. He seems like a super smart, super driven, and genuinely concerned individual. Though, I clearly don’t know Musk or his motives.

Is there a basis for Human Rights?

Christianity gives a firm foundation for human rights. Not only that, but Christianity has “the strongest possible resource for practicing sacrificial service, generosity, and peace-making. At the very heart of [Christianity’s] view of reality [is] a man who died for his enemies, praying for […]

A Few Thoughts On Genetic Engineering (part three)
