This article responds to survey findings and observations indicating that the role of religions in resisting corruption is insignificant. Corruption in many Asian countries is a multi-dimensional problem and has penetrated all sectors of society, including religious institutions. Religions do contain valuable ethical resources implying anti-corruption positions, yet every religious tradition tends to emphasise a particular dimension of societal life and therefore fails to provide a comprehensive anti-corruption theological framework. With respect to Protestant Christianity, synergising ethical resources in conservative-evangelical, neo-Pentecostal, and the mainstream traditions is needed to construct a multidimensional anti-corruption theology.
