What one thinks themselves to be is of little concern... One might think it honorable to run into a burning building and save a child.. And it would be... But if when kicking in the door you find the reason you are doing so is because you seek the fame of being a hero then there is no Honor in the person... As I said one can do the Honorable thing for very dishonorable reasons... Not matter how their delusional minds rationalize it...<quoted text>
I am sure that Stalin,Mao Tse tung and other destructive atheists thought themselves to be Honorable men.
Mafia Chieftains consider themselves to be men of honor.
You need only read the postings of Atheists on this website and see how they self proclaim themselves men of honor...
At no time have they ever committed an act for which they would feel ashamed.
Of course ,that is all based on their value system , which may well permit for any type of behaviour as being acceptable as long as it pertains to them individually and not others.
Obviously , Honor is a hollow meaningless symbol,since it can be applied as one pleases.
Human nature is controlled by strong unhealthy desires.
Envy , greed ,lusts ,deceit and jealousy among others.
Those who deny that they have no such desires and are not motivated by such ,are liars , in addition to.
What you posted , which you are attributing to me , is a description of your own desires.
You are partially right. Many things that I no longer do , is due to my fear of God, but more importantly , I now realize hjow corrupt human nature is.
Those who claim to be (HONORABLE) and self righteous continue being controlled by their carnal desires and condem others for behaviour that they themselves continue to practice.
You , being an honorable person , best not cast the first stone, cause someone may unleash a mountainful of boulders in your direction...
In your case all I have to go by is your posts and your posts tells the tale of a dishonorable person attempting to do honorable things for dishonorable reasons...
