Two important parts of a complete ethical theory are moral transformation and moral faith. An ethical theory needs an account of how we can be morally transformed into a good person; it must actually be possible to lead a moral life. And we need an explanation of how it is that leading a moral life is actually conducive to our own happiness; we need moral faith. In this sermon, Dr. Baggett discusses the call of God and how to live in light of one’s calling. In the process, he hits on these themes of moral transformation and moral faith. So if you’re interested in understanding how a Christian theory of ethics can be fleshed out in a practical way, this sermon is well worth your time!
