The course tackles themes like “creation,” the human as image of God, “body and soul” , “male and female,” “freedom, grace and sin,” “the individual and the community,” “suffering and the goodness of God,” and “ultimate destiny.” As disciples of Jesus of Nazareth the virtuous person, and with St. Vincent de Paul as inspiration for a virtuous life, a special feature of this course is the retrieval and revitalization of Filipino and Asian virtues as resources for becoming good persons who are rooted in our cultures and socially involved in our communities.

The quest for God in the ordinary, everyday life and historical, social events is testified and narrated in the Hebrew and Christian Bible. The nucleus of God’s story with humanity and the whole creation is Jesus of Nazareth, who Christians profess, is the definitive and unique bearer of God’s offer of fullness of life. Through his proclamation of “the reign or Kingdom of God” in words and deeds, Jesus showed God’s unconditional love and commitment, especially to the “least, the last, and the lost.” This course also introduces the patron saint of Adamson University – St. Vincent de Paul; he discovered the face of God-in-Jesus among the poor and marginalized people.

As we cannot put new wine into old wineskins, we need new perspectives and approaches to new challenges. These new ways of understanding and new solutions must still be grounded in the values of the Reign of God that Jesus Christ proclaimed, guided by the social tradition of the Catholic Church, and most especially in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul who promoted what we may call today “systemic change”. Social concerns include globalization and cultures, migration or contemporary human mobility, computer-mediated communications, governance, health and wellness, and the ecological system. Distinct from other courses in the university that teach philosophy-based ethics, this course offers the theological ethical social foundations and principles, particularly the option for the poor and the margins, towards a networked world embraced with charity and justice.
