Sonography and ethical decision making is the key topic in the fallowing paper. Main issues in such as emotions being unethical and ethical obligation to ourselves. Ethical issues in the line of ultrasound are at a wide span, from people trying to pry information out of sonographers to holding in emotions in an upsetting moment. Sonographers deal with ethical issues on an everyday basis. Patient are more than likely sent to get an ultrasound because of some type of abnormalities.
In addition to the worries about how the Bible would be viewed with integration and the lack of guidelines, there are other concerns which must be addressed as well before integration can truly take place. For example, many Christian psychologists today spend more time worrying about how psychology fits into their theology instead of trying to practically apply biblical beliefs to a counseling setting (Ripley, 2012). Because of this, there are many psychologists who tend to blur ethical guidelines, often attempting to take more of a position of a pastor than that of a counselor or guide (Tan, 2003). Tan goes on to mention that one of the trickiest parts of integration is making sure that the ability to guide someone spiritually is not misused,
The Cider House Rules movie seems to challenge the principles of the church and their beliefs through the personality of Dr. Wilbur Larch who defenses the right of women to make their own decision with respect to pregnancy and helps them to get through the abortion, thus performing the role of God (Holden). The doctor does not believe that this act is an indication of the negative human nature from the position of experience. Another view is reflected in the movie by Homer who views everything from the position of a child and believes that the abortion tends to be a wrong action and should not be justified. Thus, the film directors might appeal to the idea that the Christianity’s view of human nature appears to be immature enough, and one needs to reconsider the principles underlying the identification of the positive and negative aspects of human nature. As a result, for people it is sometimes useful to play God and to determine how the life would go further.
In recent years, the debate between “pro-choice” and “pro-life” has become a well-known topic of discussion filled with heat and passion; nevertheless, the question of whether one should consider themselves pro-choice or pro-life should only be asked after one has done their research and knows the true definition of each term. The Oxford Dictionary defines pro-choice as “advocating legalized abortion” and defines pro-life as “opposing legalized abortion”; however, it seems people are unaware of these definitions. The slogan of the pro-life cause as showcased on ProLife.com is, “Helping moms, saving babies, ending abortion!” While this does address their thoughts on abortion it adds two more
All these texts put Christians in a quandary on how to avoid spiritual contamination and moral impurity while at the same time carrying out the commission Jesus has given. Richard Niebuhr struggled with this dilemma and examined how the Church historically has understood her relationship to culture. He gave his findings in a popular book titled Christ and Culture where discusses five basic ways Christians relate to culture. They are either (1) against culture, or (2) of culture, or (3) above culture, or (4) in tension with culture, or (5) transformers of
This topic is regarded as a very sensitive topic because as there is seen in the other world views, there is no definitive answer whether euthanasia is right or wrong considering one’s own opinion. My opinion on the matter is that I believe that euthanasia, being granted to children, should be legalized. I’m a Christian and my own worldview consists of a combination of different worldviews which I combined to form my own belief. According to my opinion euthanasia is morally right, but it should only be granted in extreme cases where the condition of the child is dire. My world view has influenced me to be a compassionate and empathetic person.
People face ethical dilemmas all through their lives, some minor with few consequences, and others major with large, sometimes unexpected, negative consequences. How we navigate our way through these dilemmas is influenced by our worldview, and has an impact on shaping our worldview. I will examine the real estate ethical dilemma according to my Christian worldview, and compare it to other options of resolving the dilemma.
This teaching is embodied in Romans 12:2 which states “Don 't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” With this verse and other Christian teachings in mind, questions of authenticity arise. If young Christians choose to participate in the hipster lifestyle, other Christians have wondered how authentic their faith is and whether the earthly hipster lifestyle can be reconciled with a traditional, pious one. Hipster Christians can also be considered increasingly political. As McCracken (2010) argues, this particular subculture is driving the church to consider issues of social justice, service and welfare to the forefront. In conclusion, Hipster Christians offer a challenge to Christian traditions while still incorporating religious and spiritual
Nowadays, many of us are being stereotype and prejudice, especially to those who are connected with different kinds of stereotyping. With those different kinds, there are also some studies that shows stereotyping can be overcome or can be avoid, with the help of various medications like psychological medications, and help of other people so that, one’s emotion cannot suffer from stress and depression. As the quotation says “What we must work toward is an understanding of religious life as a responsible choice by mature persons who are motivated by an adult faith and a loving comment”. Understanding this quotation can lead to another solution for stereotyping because, a person must be a good role model to other people who always do stereotyping.
Therefore, it is a problem that will arise since there will be conflicts between people as a result of differing opinions. Certain religions consider it to be immoral. From the point of view of a Christian they have concluded that the status of an embryo is similar to that of a human because it will become one and thus they should be treated with respect thinking of the human it will become. The main concern for religious groups as such from all religions is that through this they are “playing god”. They believe that messing with Gods will is erroneous and this will cause problems to arise between different groups who oppose the opinion therefore stem cell transplants are better off avoided and only tested in the laboratories but not performed on humans.
