The content of this web-site is primarily focused on moral theology, which is a part of systematic theology. Moral theology is: the science of faith and the Church which accepts and investigates Divine revelation while responding to the requirements of the human reason; reflection dealing with morality, i.e. the right and wrong of human acts as well as with the person who acts, thus, it becomes accessible to all humankind; theology, since it holds that the beginning and the end of all moral acting is the One who himself is good and who offers man a happy divine life through giving himself to humans in the Person of Christ. In a broader sense, the site is focused on Christian ethics and topics on Christian philosophy. It is primarily addressed to theologians with their specialization in moral theology, to people working in the area of Christian ethics as well as to all the professionals seeking the truth about important issues reflected on from the point of view of morals and ethics. Furthermore, the port is meant for students of moral theology and Christian ethics, as well to all people of good will who are wholly open to the dynamics of the truth about God calling man through Jesus Christ. Similar to the most common classification of moral theology into general and specialized, this site is divided into two main sections, while subsections focused on the matter of general moral theology will gradually appear in the general moral theology part. The part of the site focused on specialized moral theology is so far divided into a part dealing with questions on bioethics, family and the social teaching of the Church. Since these areas of moral acting of the human person are extremely important and extensive, a separate section within the site is created for them. All the specialized articles in the site are reviewed. All rights reserved.
General Moral Theology In this part of the site, the fundamental principles, methods and sources of moral theology and Christian ethics are available, while discussed from the point of view of the divine call of man to participate in the divine life. It deals with the reflection in the light of the Old and New Testaments, in the context of a specific identification of moral law, which is not created by man and which resides in man's conscience; moreover, two fundamental anthropological sources and the principles as well as the conditions of moral acts are presented from the point of view of a free response to the divine call. This part of the site is focused on the reflection on the interpersonal vertical relationship between a Christian and God realized in the ecclesial community with the emphasis on the three theological virtues, on the religious freedom of man in the biblical context as well as on the forms of Christian worship and the issues of inner conversion in the personal understanding.
Special Moral Theology This part of the site presents the relationship between man - Christian and a neighbor in a biblical-anthropological context as well as in the light of the teaching of the Magisterium, while the relationship between man and his neighbor is explained through the principles of Christian personalization. It points out to the main communities, in which man lives, such as the Church, marriage and family, nation and state. Drawing from the principles of truth and freedom, love and justice, diverse ways of man's call, who is morally responsible for his/her acts in different dimensions of his/her life, are shown.
In the part of the site called Theology of Life - Bioethics the creation of principles and justification of norms as well as the moral evaluation of human acts based on the crucial situations at the beginning of human life, its duration and death are presented in a normative way and the personal concept of man, his dignity and rights are indicated. This section is focused on the issue of respect for the dignity of human life as well as on the forms of aggression against human life from the point of view of moral theology.
The section Family focuses on the anthropological assumptions of marriage and family as well as on the Christian personal conception of sexuality presenting marriage and family as communio personarum. This part deals with the moral aspects of responsible parenthood and the ethics of married couples as well as with the relationship between family and the society, while pointing to today's menaces against family.
The section Catholic Social Teaching is focused on those human values which may and ought to be realized in cooperation with the social entities in the society, while social teaching is considered an integral part of moral theology and, within its frame, a special category which carefully creates the results of the reflection on the difficult issues of social existence of human life in the society in the light of the New Testament message, faith and Church tradition, taking into consideration the theological character. Respecting the anthropological sources, this part of moral theology is a continual actualization of the Gospel in the changing social reality carrying historical signs of time which ought to be evaluated in the light of theological principles and criteria.
