    Faithnet.org.uk might have what you're looking for, but I've been unsuccessful in finding specific links myself... I'm linking religious ethics and Christianity on Edexcel, will hopefully be able to answer by applying natural moral law to homosexuality.

    i do AQA and i use that website most. i also have the Religious Studies Oxford Revsion Guide (AS + A level through diagrams) and i think it's pretty good (and i tend to use it more than my own notes)

    For edexcel, yes and no. The question I've chosen to go for asks about the application of an ethical theory, or theories, to one or two issues relevant to Christianity. The way in which the question is asked is different, though, and believe it or not this can make a difference!

    well up to now mine has been examine the nature of God in the OT and NT and examine Gods relationship with his people in the OT and NT. But you can just use the same things and adapt really easily.

    Wow wish it was the same for me... Last year's question wasn't very good at all, and no one got higher than a C for the synoptic paper! Hope Wednesday's will be the same as the one two years ago, or something similar!

    You should be ok, just make sure you read and re-read the question. Plan your answer and make sure it fits in with what the question is asking. The best way to do this is to constantly repeat words used in the question... It's a mechanical procedure, but it shows focus!
