The Bible tells Christiansin the book of John 3: 16, to love one another just the same way God loves them and sent His only son to rescue them from sin. The Bible does not want Christians to go in to war with fellow Christians nor to seek revenge but to ask God for help. Christians are allowed to choose their leaders and ask God for guidance in order to choose the right leader (Dockery &Thornbury, 2002).

God expects leaders to be wise in their decisions and rule justly.

Believers should accept what is being told to them in a cheerful manner, to listen with intent and then to go forth with diligence. How they respond will determine the consequences and how it will affect the world in which they live.
Divine command theory is the idea that certain actions are morally good or morally bad because they are what God wills for us. God’s demands determine what is right or wrong.

A Christian Worldview of Research In the world of research, a person with a Christian worldview should stick out from the rest. Christian researchers need to be the models of moral behavior, treat ethical issues according to scripture, and create an environment with their actions, words, and attitudes. It is imperative that Christians see medical research not as part of the secular worldview, but be non-judgmental, and treat fellow investigators and study participants regardless of sickness, need, ethnic background, religious status or financial situation. Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”
