Excerpt: "The problem of determining right and wrong is of an extremely serious nature because few people recognize the contrast between secularized standards of the age and the moral principles of Christianity. In America particularly, both those in the church and those outside its fold harbor the vague illusion that the common life of man is Christian. This should be problem enough. Yet it is with deep concern that this author has noted definite discrepancies in evangelical Christianity as to the problem of right and wrong conduct. What one evangelical Christian would preach as wrong, the other would practice as right. Thus the question arose as to whether or not there were some positive principles which as evangelical Christian could deduce which bring a sense of stability to Christian ethical thinking.
