Abstract

Like every religion, Christianity includes moral teachings. It shows us our relationship to God, our place in the universe, and our relationship with other people. If we automatically treated ourselves and others as God intended, there would be no need for moral teachings, but since we do not, Christianity includes a code of morality. So ethics, or the theoretical side of morality, is included in Christian theology, the theoretical side of the Christian religion.
