In creating his model Paley has also provided a response to one great criticism of utilitarianism, which is that its approach is teleological. So much so that some have recently found it necessary to make the urgent plea that theological ethics be kept theological. 'The first task, Hauerwas writes, 'is not. .. to write as though Christian commitments make no difference in the sense that they only underwrite what everyone already in principle can know, but rather to show the difference those commitments make.'9 A specific morality therefore.
