Excerpt from Christian Character: Being Some Lectures on the Elements of Christian Ethics The following pages contain the substance of some lectures upon Christian ethics originally delivered from notes. Their aim was simply expository: to indicate in outline the essential and permanent elements in Christian life and character. For though the emphasis laid upon particular virtues, as well as upon the means of their attainment, has varied in different periods of history and different schools of thought, the fundamental nature of the Christian character, as exhibited by its best representatives, has always remained the same. And that character has been essentially dependent upon belief in the cardinal doctrines of the Christian creed. Nowadays, however, the necessity of this dependence is denied in many quarters; while, in others, Christian ethics altogether are pronounced inadequate to modern needs.
