Perhaps you should read the book "Lord of The Flies" and you'll understand how a society can degenerate into immorality without guidance.

Bahaha. Perhaps you should read the book "The Hitchhiker`s Guide to the Galaxy" and you`ll understand that those books are FICTION.

"Perhaps you should read the book "Lord of The Flies" and you'll understand how a society can degenerate into immorality without guidance."

Those kids were portrayed as upper crest military academy students. They would have been raised with morals. Their society broke down because there was no parental guidance. It had nothing to do with morals or church.

"Morality does not come from within, it is taught. Perhaps you should read the book "Lord of The Flies" and you'll understand how a society can degenerate into immorality without guidance."

You`ve almost got it. Morality is taught to us by our parents starting from the time we are toddlers. My parents raised my brother and I with very strong morals. Organized religion had nothing to do with it. By the time you get to church most of your morality has been set. But we didn`t go to church. Our morals came from the parents and maybe some from our teachers.

markust: Jesus actually told us what to do and that the old mosaic law would pass away when he died for our sins. The old testament was history and prophecy of the 'Messiah`. Jesus fulfilled those prophecies and the new testament tells us of his life, words, sacrifice and new covenant with God through him.

It`s not that Christians don`t believe in certain parts of the bible, it`s that we are no longer under the jurisdiction of mosaic law.

Morality does not come from within, it is taught. Perhaps you should read the book "Lord of The Flies" and you`ll understand how a society can degenerate into immorality without guidance.

spanerbulb: Of course I have and felt guilty about it, but I've reformed myself since. I`m not pointing fingers at anyone, just explaining my ethical point of view.
