Topic: Ethical Application
First, choose an issue in applied ethics that greatly interests you. It could be any topic covered in the assigned readings from our Biblical Ethics textbook.
Second, based on the ethical theory you defended in DB 2, formulate an ethical application on this specific issue in a 500-600 word thread. You are expected to use both textbooks as well as outside academic sources to support your analysis and argument. As you write your thread, consider the following steps:
- If you are a Christian, formulate an application to this issue based on a Christian ethical theory. If you are not a Christian, you may formulate an application based on whatever ethical theory you think is strongest.
- Briefly describe a strong counterargument to your own position and respond to it. In the Capstone Essay, you will have more room to elaborate. For now, keep it brief (no more than one paragraph).
