What is the view of the biblical materials on the role of ethics in the development of history? Today there are much different ethics that the Bible presents to us today. If someone is stressed about something happening the day after that they ca recite Mathew 6:34 says “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” If someone has trouble loving one another they can recite 1 Peter 4:8 which says “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 

Different Bible verses have different themes. Proverbs is about wisdom and Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John (the Gospels) are about the life of Jesus. Different people get different sanctions depending on how they obey God. If someone wants sanctions they will want to obey God and do what He says. Your sanctions from God can change depending on things like how you act, what you say, and what you let your eyes see. No one can really choose if their life is good or not. All they can do is obey God and be diligent in their work. Your life can start out as you loving and obeying God and then you turn away from Him and God changes your sanctions from good to bad or it can go the other way. 

Like I said before having wisdom and obedience can to God can lead to good sanctions, but a life of wickedness and foolishness will lead to bad sanctions. I will bet your wondering why people do wicked things anyway. Well they either don’t care about sanctions and just do things because they want too or they don’t know about sanctions and how they can do bad things for you if you disobey God. 

An example of a good sanction in the Bible was when Noah obeyed God and built an Ark because God said there would be a flood and for that Noah and his family survived. An example of a bad sanction id the Bible Was when  David took Bathsheba for his wife and then killed her husband. For this God killed David’s firstborn. Sanctions can be good or bad and I hope you choose wisely.
