Path 2

 Ps 1

Righteous vs. Sinners

Wisdom Ethic





Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers


Path 3

Amos 5:21-24

Let Justice Roll!

 Prophetic Ethic


I hate, I despise your religious feasts;

I cannot stand your assemblies.

22Even though you bring me burnt offerings and grain offerings,

I will not accept them.

Though you bring choice fellowship offerings,b

I will have no regard for them.

23Away with the noise of your songs!

I will not listen to the music of your harps.

24But let justice roll on like a river,

righteousness like a never-failing stream!


Path 5

Matt 22:34-40

 The Great Commandment

An Ethic based on love



Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’b 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’c 40All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”


Path 6

 Rm. 12

 Sacrifical Nonconformity


Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spirituala act of worship. 2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.



Path 7

Phil. 1:9-11

A Pauline Synopsis


And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, 11filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.


Path 4

 Matt 7:21-27

 Obeying Jesus

Jesus as center of obligation




Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
