After viewing this week’s materials, you will note that there is a history in the development of ethical codes and that they have place today in the professional /paraprofessional environment. In fact, it is within these environments wherein ethics are needed (e.g., ethical codes) and for many organizations, ethics is part of organizational policy. For Christians, ethics can be seen as inherent to our on Christian walk. As I have heard from other ethics professors, Christians are even held to a higher standard and one Scripture that is often referenced is Colossians 3:23 – “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” (New Living Translation). As part of this week’s discussion question, discuss whether Christians should live/work in a higher ethical manner and share why. How could this higher ethical manner impact the organization where the Christian works? Give specifics examples. What scriptures would you use to support this position? Share how these verses relate to your position.
NOTE: This question is not about Christians being superior to others but more about ethical behavior.
