Lesson 16

Committing to a Moral Life

At the end of this course, we can reflect on the evidence that religious faith and Jesus鈥 moral teaching are the pathways not only to eternal salvation but also to emotional, relational, and marital health in this life. Growing in our faith, following Jesus鈥 moral teachings, resisting temptations, avoiding sin, and living the virtues, however, are difficult. Each of us is part of a transcendent spiritual struggle between good and evil that ultimately requires divine assistance to prevail 鈥 to resist temptation and change sinful habits.
