Examining the Origin of Morality

Ethics refers to the quality of one's inner character or moral philosophy.

That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts,... All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man. (Mark 7:20-23)

Morals refer more to the outward actions of one's behavior.

Jesus made a distinction between the two when He often criticized people who outwardly behaved well but were inwardly corrupt.
