Here you go,
"Although not all deontologists are religious, some believe in the 'divine command theory'. The divine command theory is a cluster of related theories
that state that an action is right if God has decreed that it is right. William of Ockham, René Descartes and eighteenth-century Calvinists all
accepted versions of this moral theory, according to Ralph Cudworth, as they all held that moral obligations arise from God's commands. The Divine
Command Theory is a form of deontology because, according to it, the rightness of any action depends upon that action being performed because it is a
duty, not because of any good consequences arising from that action. If God commands people not to work on Sabbath, then people act rightly if they do
not work on Sabbath because God has commanded that they do not do so. If they do not work on Sabbath because they are lazy, then their action is not
truly speaking "right", even though the actual physical action performed is the same. If God commands not to covet a neighbour's goods, this theory
holds that it would be immoral to do so, even if coveting provides the beneficial outcome of a drive to succeed or do well."
Are you sure you know enough about it to use it in your arguement?
Can you answer me a question, I've asked you multiple and out haven't answered any. Please answer this one so we can stop arguing and start
Can you name something that was created that has no purpose or function? (Which isn't a symptom of cause and effect)
