Subjective Morality

2766Right and wrong are determined by the desired outcome. If you aim to extinguish a fire it is wrong to use gasoline and right to use water. If you aim to contribute to society’s mutual benefit it is wrong to harm others and right to help them.

  1. Jesus was able to reach the heart of each one he talked to. Some accepted Him, while others rejected His invitation. He spoke rather strongly at times but the message was pure,

    Often, those who have had a bad experience with Christians harden their hearts towards any of our attempts to reach them. Does that mean we “sugar-coat” the message? NO, instead we preach the Bible, but do it in a non-judgmental way, For example, we share the love Jesus has for each one of us, even when we sin. However, love does not mean that He loves our sinful acts.

    We will not be judged on the love we profess for each other, rather on how we show that love to each other and to God. Love does not mean we condone or live in sin.

    Rather complicated, isn’t it?

    I’m very much enjoying reading your posts. I hope my questions highlight not only a desire to engage and learn from each other but also my desire simply hear more of your thoughts. 🙂
