Hi guys,

There is a sentence, "Conversely, repentance involves turning back to God and to a virtuous way of life under the guidance of the Holy Spirit." (Jesus and Virtue Ethics) What's your understanding of "virtuous way of life"? Does it mean "the right path of life"?

    If your way of life is virtuous, you are doing virtuous things, you are demonstrating virtues such as patience, generosity, kindness, etc.
    You could see a list of Biblical virtues here: Virtue - Wikipedia Of course, that is a very literal way to read "virtuous." You can also think of being virtuous as simply not doing things that are wrong or immoral.
