    Gordon Graham argues that the inability of modernist thought to account satisfactorily for evil and its occurrence should not lead us to embrace an eclectic postmodernism, but to take seriously some unfashionable pre-modern conceptions - Satan, demonic possession, spiritual powers, cosmic battles. Eastern Orthodox and Protestant ethics have been more suspicious of human reason and experience, although today many ethicists in these traditions give reason and experience an important, though still subordinate, role. Forell's History of Christian Ethics, vol. The Greek Orthodox church and the Russian Orthodox church have joined the World Council of Churchesso that Orthodoxy now participates, though not without tensions, in the current discussions and positions taken on contemporary social questions by the World Council.

    Simply, this system has many ethical duties that are absolute. The distinction between morality and ethics is significant. Now there was greater dialogue with other Christians, non-Christians, and the modern world in general. He quickly summarizes ten different proposed foundations for ethics including power, pleasure, human survival, and God's will.

    Humans were never intended to have a conscience, to feel shame, to know the difference between good and evil: we were made, instead, to know only God, to love only God, and to see ourselves only as God sees us. Prioritized Ethics are just as important as arriving at our ethical principles in the first place. But this leaves us with no conceptual framework for distinguishing between the simply bad act and the evil one. As a result, the number of people teaching and writing in the area of Christian ethics has grown considerably. The fact that the "absolute" is actually relative makes it a form of the antinomian view. At times the polemical nature of discussions between the Orthodox and Roman Catholic traditions seems to have influenced the Orthodox denial of natural law.
