MIFSUD, Tony. Del indicativo de la fe al imperativo de la ética. Teol. vida [online]. 2012, vol.53, n.1-2, pp. 65-86. ISSN 0049-3449.

After the Second Vatican Council, the reflection of Moral Theology definitely abandons its legalistic spirit in favor of a discourse rooted in the biblical perspective of a human response to the divine call. However, this biblical matrix is not understood as a type of "revealed morality" but rather as a biblical ethos that accounts for a "revealed reality" in light of the Good News and its consequences on the lifestyle of the disciples' community. Thus, the indicative of faith becomes an ethical imperative.

Keywords : Holy Scripture; moral theology; biblical ethos; divine indicative; human imperative; faith and morals; service, hope.
