VAN DER WATT, J.G.. Ethical decisions according to 1 John. Acta theol. [online]. 2013, vol.33, n.2, pp.207-225. ISSN 2309-9089.

How to come to ethical decisions is an important question, both for individuals and religious institutions. In this article the way is discussed in which the author(s) of the Letters of John (especially 1 John) encourages the recipients of the Letters to come to the correct ethical decisions. He links all such decisions to the tradition they share, which corresponds to the truth they also share. The Spirit will lead and teach them accordingly.

Keywords : Letters of John; Ethic of 1 John; Tradition in 1 John; Spirit in 1 John; Truth in 1 John.
