In a modern and complex society Christians are continually confronted by the problem of taking moral decisions. In this article the question is posed how the Christians decision should take shape against the ever changing background of this society, discerning God’s will under these circumstances. Taking these questions into account, the author of this article suggests that at least twelve directives should be considered; presuppositions, motives, norms, aims, means, methods, cases, results, considerations, prayer, (individual) choice and joint decision. The conclusion arrived at is that these directives do not function in isolation - they function interrelatedly, depend on and have an effect on one another.
