There is no norm, no ideal, no grandiose principle from which hypothetical, preconceived or pretentious answers can be derived because—to the [Christian]—there are no disincarnate issues . . . In other words, any ethical system, which is settled and stereotyped, uniform and preclusive, neat and predictable, is both dehumanizing and pagan . . . inflating the role of the principalities while vitiating the human vocation.
— William Stringfellow, Conscience and Obedience (Eugene: Wipf & Stock, 2004 [1977], pp. 25–27)
An ethics cannot be a work of reference for moral action that is guaranteed to be unexceptionable, and the ethicist cannot be the competent critic and judge of every human activity. An ethics cannot be a retort in which ethical or Christian human beings are produced, and the ethicist cannot be the embodiment or ideal type of life, which is, on principle, moral.
