A Christ-Centred Ethic

The NT ethic depends totally upon Christ and the salvation provided by Christ. In the same way that salvation is by faith, so the moral conduct of all believers is based upon a life of faith in the Lord and the obligations brought about as the result of a life lived in communion with the Saviour (Ephesians 2.10). In other words, works spring out of faith and communion with Christ and are not the result of human effort. Conduct is dependent upon a love relationship with the Lord.

Because Christians enjoy a life, which is freed from the shackles of sin, they are now able to be free to serve God and man as was originally intended prior to the fall of Adam. An unbeliever cannot live according to Christian principles because there is no Christ-centeredness, nor any relationship between the sinner and the Saviour.
