Ethics, Methods of Teaching Ethics, Methods of Implementing Ethical Practices
Ethics concerns every aspect of human life. This, logically, issues out of the Biblical view of the unity of human nature. Education, while compartmentalized didactically for the purpose of specialization, cannot be complete unless some interdisciplinary and essentially human needs are met as well. Seventh-day Adventist graduates in colleges Should not be only excellent nurses, skillful secretaries, money-making businessmen but also outstanding Christians within their vocation. The world does not need to see how one can be a Christian within the church building or setting. Rather, what difference does it make to see a Christian physician as compared to a non-Christian one. This can be done only if we incorporate moral principles as we teach mathematics, chemistry, business, psychology, medicine, etc. Five methods of incorporation of ethics in these subjects are briefly explained. “Normal,”“average,”“successful,”are not necessarily synonymous with “good”and/or “right.”
