This study aims at examining the way a Christian views hislher ethical values within the context of a postmodern society characterised by a plurality of moralities and religious convictions. This investigation begins with a look at the New Testament traditions with a view to inquiring whether there is such a thing as one 'Christian ethical system' that emerges from these texts which can be used as a ready-made formula for how one is to live in every given situation. The answer will be in the negative. Instead, it will show that ethics always operate in a challenging way. With this perspective in mind attention will be devoted to examining the Christian attitude toward the state and a pluralistic society. How does the Christian remain true to his/her ethical values in a pluralistic society? How do Christians interact with those who see things totally differently from themselves?
