From this he derives that nearly all, or all, interracial marriages are sinful. Of course, these two are in fact separable; it is possible to perform an act of sexual intercourse which expresses love without a child being conceived, and it is possible for a child to be conceived when the act does not express love, because there is no love in the union to be expressed, as in rape.

The answer is found in a parable of Jesus: But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, 'My Lord delays his coming', and shall begin to smite his fellow servants and to eat and drink with the drunken; the lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of (Matthew 24:48-61). Again, not outward action alone, but inner virtue springing forth into outward action, is the key biblical ethic.

But we can say to every child, adolescent and adult there are ways of living about which every virtuous person is rightly concerned. Biblical ethics build on the work of other Biblical scholars. We also have the assistance of a new, changed nature and conscience to monitor our behavior. When such a righteous king sits in power, order and harmony will naturally prevail at every level of society. David Gibson, Religion News Service / October 18, 2012 Is unborn life not worth protecting in cases of rape and incest?
