    In an intoduction to Bioethics, Citizen Link, part of Family.org, states:
    It is even streching it to think the Bible is Philosophy

    Not at all. The Bible, among other things, seeks to address questions of ethics.

    That's a scary thought since most of them think the bible is the inspired word of God. They can find examples and justification for many things that I consider immoral. The Old testament has more violence and hate in it them most of the books that were burned in history by and for the church.

    I've always made a distinction between ethics and morality and especially, I see the Bible as giving commands and law rather than thinking about morality as a system.
