I am very excited to start a journey on Christian moral theology with this course. However, I am somewhat concerned about catching up with this course since I have never had any Catholic experiences in my life. On the other hand, I assume that it will be a great and a precious experience for me to understand Catholic perspectives.
As a Protestant, this course would deeply increase my thoughts and perspectives toward moral issues with understanding Christian traditions. As a human being who lives a life in a community, I always struggle with contemporary moral issues, and have not found any guideline to follow. Thus, I expect the knowledge from this course would be a great guideline for me to properly deal with contemporary moral issue as I live on.
As a business major student, I am very interested in the current issues. Some of the topics related to the current issues, such as sexual ethics and euthanasia, would enhance my view to the current society so that I can apply theological moral reflection into the field of business as well.
I also expect the topic related to war would answer my own moral question that I have had. With my own experience, I have struggled with the moral issue of war since I served Army for two years. While I was in the Army, I always asked myself such questions like; “Is this ethical to kill my enemy?” or “If I do not kill my enemy, my family and my friends would be hurt, but what if the decision I make would be immoral?” I tried myself to find out the answers, but I still have not found the answer. In this sense, I really expect the topic and the other theological learning through this course could be very influential to answer the questions.
