ETHICS 1 - Ethics and Moral Reasoning in Everyday Life Baptism. However, life is filled with the temptation to sin. The only way humanity can be saved from sin and the wages of sin is by following the moral teachings of Christ as he lived them. This includes showing mercy and compassion to every living creature, even to one’s enemies. It also involves a certain level of introspection — i.e. that one should not be quick to judge others and should focus instead on one’s own moral cultivation. ————————————————————————————————————— Activity 11 The Christian teaching to love one’s neighbor as oneself has other formulations that resemble the Golden Rule of Confucianism, as follows: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” (Lk. 6: 31) and “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you.” (Lk. 6: 37-38) 1. Compare this teaching to the principle of Zhong and Shu in Confucianism. Indicate what makes them similar and/or different from one another. State your reason/s. 2. What other teachings of Kong Zi has a similar articulation in the teachings of Christ? ————————————————————————————————————— 3.2 Islamic Ethics Islamic Ethics comes from the youngest monotheistic religion of the world, Islam. The term Islam means peace, security, submission. Islam asserts that a life of peace is made possible only through the submission of one’s life to Allah . The two primary sources of Islamic ethics are the Qur’an and the Sunnah or Life of the Prophet Muhammad. The Qur’an is believed to have been given by Allah (God) for human beings to refer to with regard to human conduct. It is the Islamic counterpart of the Christian Bible. The Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad, believed to be the last messenger of Allah , consists of the historical projection of a divinely inspired and guided human life. The life of Muhammad serves as the model for human conduct. These two sources ground the Islamic moral code in divine will, providing Islam with a clearly defined sense of moral authority. ————————————————————————————————————— Activity 12 Read “Book 2: Belief” of the a i al-Bukh ā r ī : The Translation of the Meanings of a i al- Bukh ā r ī translated by M. M. Khan. Answer the following study questions: 1. What are the five principles of Islam?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
