I enjoyed the article, Seen. I truly believe that morals are evolutionary. Look at how we view children. We are going BACK in time to when children were second thoughts, at best, of importance in our society.

Morals go back and forth. Women are respected and have rights, women are no more than breeding cows.

There are no absolutes in how we treat women. Society and man's progression or regression determine our moral conduct.

Love decides what is good or bad.
That is all that it ever was, the law that is.
Anything else is pure lawlessness, thats us by the way.
Right is love, wrong is hate.
See, it's cluckin simple.

I cannot argue with that. It is an innate concept and not dependent on the bible or only the teaching of Jesus Christ.
That the concept is innate is due to our common origin of The Creator.
Moses expanded and Jesus cleared up and clarified divine law.

You're right, but the simple eludes many.

If one lives by love, they're more concerned about the other person's welfare in any interaction and thus display the law of the divine.

Love God and love your neighbor as yourself.

Somehow it just seems natural that YOU would need a definition of love provided for you.

Are you saying you don't have a definition for love?

You should learn the difference between morals and law.

Is it moral to behead a rape victim for adultery? It's the law in some countries\?

You do realize that you can have love and lack empathy, don't you? Do you live by love but not empathy?

Does this topix machine allow for the space needed to cover the definition of love in the minutae of all actions and thought?
No.

But, we could capsulize the content for the litterate.

To live in love is to act in charity to others.
Charity is the theological virtue by which we love God above all things for his own sake, and our neighbor as ourselves for the love of God.

"If we turn away from evil out of fear of punishment, we are in the position of slaves.
If we pursue the enticement of wages,... we resemble mercenaries.
Finally if we obey for the sake of the good itself and out of love for him who commands ... we are in the position of children."

Don't confuse sympathy with empathy.

I'm not. That's your problem. You lack enough empathy to determine what's moral and what's not. Hell, you can't even determine the difference between morals and laws.

Big difference is that you are unable to determine this without a book of fairy tales.

As a fundie, why do you need to ask? Fundies are not supposed to ask questions in search of answers. Be aware, such a thing carries with it the real danger of making you think and perhaps even make you reconsider your beliefs. Anathema! You have been warned!
