Title
A Biblical Analysis of Values Clarification
Abstract

The Values Clarification approach to moral education is examined and evaluated in this article in light of biblical teachings and principles as understood by evangelical Christians. Its basic assumptions and primary techniques are identified and the possible negative effects of its strategies indicated. Values Clarification morality, it is concluded, promotes situational ethics, humanistic over-optimism about human nature, and unreasoned decision-making. At root is a de facto denial of the existence of any set of God-given standards or absolutes as guides for right or wrong behavior.
