Why do we differ so much about the will of God? Comments on the formation of Christian moral judgements
A better understanding of the way in which moral judgements are made and moral decisions are taken may help to understand why Christians differ so much on moral issues. Protestant ethicists, however, have generally ignored these questions, for a number of reasons. Heinz Eduard Tödt, a former professor in Social Ethics from Heidelberg, Germany, has done more than anyone else to put these issues on the agenda of protestant ethicists. The authors analyse the five most important aspects of his theory. The factors that contribute to moral disagreement among Christians are identified and illustrated with reference to the moral problem of poverty.
