But I wouldn't say that consequentialism can fit in with Christian philosophies.(Original post by RawJoh1)
It's different because God exists in the real world, not just the ideal world (assuming Christianity is true).
I think natural law's a load of **** too.
Well, the causal story isn't quite so simple there. And there's a pretty strong case that the Church has acted hideously immorally, so I'm not so sure that this is a remotely effective reductio.
Intelligent Christians have been utilitarians, deontologists and virtue ethicists. I'd agree that it's probably better for the Christian to be a deontologist or a virtue ethicist, but it's not an open and shut case.
Not possible. Consequentialism = the right action is that which maximises the good. Deontology = there is a right action which does not maximise the good. Not compatible. The Christian could be a consequence-sensitive deontologist though, but that's not consequentialist, because consequentialism doesn't just mean that "consequences matter".
You can be Christian and ignore the general teachings laid out in the bible.
