Among religious believers and unbelievers, there is a rather broad consensus on the autonomy of morality: morality is self-existent and can be known and put into practice without God and His Revelation. Believing or not should be morally inconsequent. This conflicts with the trivial proposition that belief in a Christian God is indeed relevant for our acting and our views on morality. This text deals with various possibilities of interdependence between religion and morality. Then we discuss some theological and moral philosophical questions resulting from the proposition that morality is logically independent of God and His commandments.
