What is Christian morality?
Christian morality is the belief that the best way to live is in keeping with the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, including loving God and neighbors, living by the 10 Commandments, and living by the Golden Rule to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
"Morality" is far too general a term to have any real meaning. For example, 'Relative Morality' is no morality at all, as virtually anything can be rationalized by the human mind. 'Christian Morality' is a particular kind of morality based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. While people may or may not adhere to it as they should, it DOES provide a consistent baseline by which to judge ones actions.
I only know of one source of Christian morality - The Ten Commandments, summarised by Jesus in two commandments: Love God, - with all your heart, soul and strength; and Love your neighbour - as yourself. This may be good exercise, but I never heard such as "Four sources of Christian morality." One could venture to say: The ten Commandments, or: The Bible The Holy Spirit Prayer Daily Crucifixion
A: "Authentic Morality" is a term probably first used in the 1960s to describe a morality based on an interpretation of Christian teachings. The originator of the term contrasted his view of morality with morality as supposedly understood by other Christians. If I were asked to define authentic morality generically, I would say morality is authentic when it is based on an inner desire to do what is right. If someone is moral, not because…

Christianity is a relationship. Although External Actions play an important part in Christianity, it is not the base of Christianity. It depends on the motive. A True Christian will do good on the inside because he/she has God(Jesus) inside, and a False Christian will do good in an attempt to attain favour from God.
Luk 10:26 Jesus answered him, "What do the Scriptures say? How do you interpret them?" Luk 10:27 The man answered, " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind'; and 'Love your neighbor as you love yourself.' " Luk 10:28 "You are right," Jesus replied; "do this and you will live." This is the heart of christian morality Love God love…
Frankly speaking, the ethics, morality and laws according to all religions are the same. They all aim at the betterment and peaceful co-existence of human beings. There may be a little difference here and there, but all religions teach honesty, truth, justice, brotherhood, sacrifice, tolerance, charity, service to the needy and the poor etc. Keeping this in view, there may be a minor difference somewhere, otherwise the Morality is the same.
In reality, morality has nothing to do with Christianity or any other religious faith. Religious faith claims morality in order to gain credibility, and persuade people to do things they wouldn't do for "just some dude in a costume, in some building with a cross shape attached to it". Morality is a powerful force in human life, which is used as reasoning for almost everything we do. ("The war was fought for freedom", "I hit…
