‘Faith becomes deeply woven into the person you are at work, expressing itself in your thoughts, words, and activities, shining from the core of your identity’ (Martin, 2017, p.157).

'Because God is who he is, we cannot be indifferent when his truth and law are flouted, but because man is who he is, we cannot try to impose them by force' (Stott, 1984).

It seems intuitive to the believer that God intended through instruction in the Law to define morality, and to lead humankind to 'the right and the good' (Orr, 2007). However, today, the whole Christian ethic is under attack (Barclay, 1971). This challenge is coming not so much from other religions but from those out of the Judeo-Christian tradition who favour post-modernism. Some will go so far as to say there is no natural law or common morality. Each person's morality is of equal standing, since truth is relative and knowledge is really a matter of interpretation. Issues in the public arena are then said to be 'morally neutral' (Orr, 2007).

This has impacted the way education is framed and it has had a peculiar impact on faith-based schools. The greatest impact has been the shift in the way people think and the questions that are asked of, or about faith.
