Morality Right or Wrong and Who Decides?
By: Susan Boston 4/17/2014
Morality opens a serious can of worms as brain juices start flowing. Huge gaps in theological thinking can and will divide many people.
Collective Universal thoughts are that indeed right and wrong does exist. This concept is pretty much agreed upon but that’s where total agreement normally ends.
Let me give you an example:
What do you feel when you look at this picture…
When you first viewed this picture what happened? Did you get the warm fuzzes, did you say, “Awe that is the most adorable puppy.”?
Many people would have some reasonable facsimile of that reaction right?
Now, what would you think if you knew that some cultures eat dog meat?
Not so warm and fuzzy now right?
By the same token, some countries (Do Not) eat cows, so as you can see many times right and wrong is not black and white. There is a very large area in our lives that remains gray and will do so from now on.
So, who decides what is right and what is wrong then?
Is it what culture you live in, is it your own personal feelings, is it your government or the laws they make? Is it religion?
Now for the MIND MELT moment:
The one and only thing this issue has in common is...
• Culture (people)
• Personal feeling (people)
• Government (people)
• Laws (people)
• Religion (people)
People make up cultures; they make up governments, laws and different beliefs in religion. Now, think about this:
People make the decisions as to what is right or wrong depending on what they believe. With that being established the next question is, “Is there really any official morality or right and wrong?”
We as a people are not perfect therefore, if we as a people (human race) are not a reflection of perfection, how then can we decide on morality [The mirror of perfection] not to mention what may or may not be right or wrong?
