Thesis Statement: Does morality require obedience to God?

Paragraph #1 (Introduction): General comments on ethics and religions with the thesis statement.

(Review in the D2L, Part 3: Themes of the Humanities, Chapter 11 (Morality), Class Lectures on Morality, #6 Divine Command Theory)

Paragraph #2: After reading and reflecting upon Genesis 22 and Abraham as Prometheus, contrasts the Abrahams. You must present three or more differences between the Abrahams.

(A copy of Genesis 22 is found in the D2L, Part 3: Themes of the Humanities, Chapter 11 (Morality), Class Lectures on Morality, #7 The Obedient Abraham of Genesis 22.)

(Is Genesis 22 a test? God knows the exam result before the test is administered. Thus, why any test?)

(Abraham as Prometheus in the D2L, Part 3: Themes of the Humanities, Chapter 11 (Morality), Class Lectures on Morality, #8 The Moral Abraham.)

Paragraph #3: Abraham of Genesis 22 is a man of obedience. Abraham as Prometheus is a man of morality. Discuss which one is a better role model for us today? Should we emulate the virtue of obedience as desired by Hilter, Stalin, Mao, the military, business corporations, parents, educators, and God or should we emulate the virtue of disobedience based on morality similar to Martin Luther, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Nelson Mandela? Discuss and explain your answer.

Paragraph #4 (Conclusion): Restate and answer the thesis statement using the above information.
