Those interested in learning and developing worldview principles should use those excellent works that have been done in Biblical ethics, but do not have �worldview� in their title.) Among Christians a new consciousness in ethics has been raised by abortion, infanticide and euthanasia. If something is grounded in pure reason, then it is valid and obligatory for all rational beings anywhere- including any non-human rational beings that we might one day encounter, angels, even God.
