The reality of the act, unfelt and unnoticed by them, is this: It unites them—body and soul—to each other.

What is central to Pauls ethic and where is there an example of it?

In fact, we need assistance from our reason to do this. There is not a mere single criterion by which to measure this terminal event; rather, a combination of factors is employed in making such decisions. My suggestion is that we attempt to delineate a category of teachings that would not so much seek to exhaust what should be contained in this body of statements or propositions as it would, by default, exclude an entire range of things that have nothing to do with ecclesiastical pronouncement. 5 I propose that the majority of church teaching that fits this category has traditionally been referred to as discipline, meaning practices, habits or a manner of living, sometimes associated with the Latin term mores.

The groups have twenty minutes to choose how to make their decision and to complete the activity. As the story goes on, and Cain kills Abel, evil spreads to all the people of the earth, and Genesis describes the basic state as a corruption of the heart (6:9).
