Justice has a much broader scope, then, than it does in the philosophical tradition. The evil is not in wealth itself – in its command over material things: it is in the possession of wealth while others are steeped in poverty; in being raised above touch with the life of humanity; from its work and its struggles, its hopes and its fears, and the kind sympathies and generous acts that strengthen faith in man and trust in God!

This percentage is even more significant if — in addition to, or together with, a reflex — the conditioning of a mood or state of mind is put in place (for example: 'You can be tranquil. .. everything is going well. .. you can be calm and go to sleep. .. ' ). Avoidance of conflict of interest is often difficult because it is often hard to separate personal and public interests, and because individuals as private citizens are encouraged to pursue private interests through any legal means.

In this paper we are going to discuss professional values and ethics and how they determine if a person will be successful in their career. A study of the two words as used in the Scriptures reveals a very important truth concerning Christian faith and morals. The last question seems more of an existential, than a Biblical, philosophy. In 1948 the Declaration of Geneva stated: ‘I will maintain the utmost respect for human life from the time of conception.’ All this changed dramatically in 1967 with David Steel’s Abortion Bill which has been described as “naive, clumsy and sinister.” This effectively opened the door to abortion on demand.

It is by its mythical approach to the problems of the human spirit that prophetic religion is able to preserve a dynamic ethic and not fall into the pitfall of a romantic glorification of impulse; and can subject dynamic and impulsive life to transcendent criteria without creating a passionless other-worldliness.
