Pastor Adam Mabry in Conversation

Many of the debates surrounding the issues that we address at the Bassetti Foundation could relate in some way to a lack of absolutism. An individual must make moral and ethical decisions without a black and white idea of right and wrong (in the biblical sense). Conversations surrounding this idea led me to take up an interest in the religious teaching of ethics. - Leggi Leggi
