Talk:Absolutism

From New World Encyclopedia
Unification Aspects:
  • From a Unificationist perspective, the notion of the absolute is rooted in God who is absolute, unique, and unchanging. God's love is absolute in the sense of its being unconditional. Human beings strive to embody God's love through their everyday life and activities, and those few individuals who manifested some portion of God's absolute love are respected as saints and sages. Unificationism characterizes God's true love in three phrases: "forgive your enemies"; "give and forget the fact you gave"; "live for the sake of others." Unification ethics is built based upon the faith in God who is conceived as the absolute being of love. Unification ethics does not discuss meta-ethical components of how this theistic view is interlaced with other ethical perspectives such as consequentialism, utilitarianism, virtue ethics, divine command ethics, and others.
Unification Aspects is designed to relate the subject of this article to Unification Thought and to aid
teachers and researchers who wish to further pursue these topics from a unification perspective.
