I doubt that you believe YOU could become a cannibal ... whereas, I am quite certain that if need be, I COULD become a cannibal.

I could also become a serial killer if the mood was suitable.

Do you think your SELF is above all behavior that occurs in other humans?

I suggest you do, as you like to believe your SELF is very moral.

YUCK!

That word self is silly nonsense, as each self perceives in a different way what is and what is not moral.
Some folks don't understand the Self enough to apply it.

Yeah - sort of like you do, but you have applied it correctly with this statement:

"...as each self perceives in a different way what is and what is not moral."

- But you also MUST include - that since morals are learned, and if one does not learn virtuous morals, that the only thing left are actions that are immoral.

Morality is learned through honesty and acceptance.

Morality is perceived through individual experience and it is silly to believe that one could not break one's own code of "morality."
Self shits with the tide of experience.
I meant to post Self "shifts" with the tide of experience.

Jealousy will always be present in humans, as it appears here in your post.

Oh, you won't admit it, but since you just can't admit that another person CAN BE more moral than you, you have to voice your objections in anyway you find suitable.

Again, that is your Self. "Jumping the gun Self" is more accurate.

:o)

And yes, I do think my life is moral. You may not, and that is okay with me, because you really aren't living my life, so you really have only speculation as your friend when statements are made about me.

Can I become a cannibal?
- Hmmmm.....maybe - I really haven't thought about it. Does human flesh taste like onions? If so, then I will probably die from starvation.

:o)

Could I become a serial killer?
- Nah - I only kill what I want to eat (as with hunting), or if my life is in a situation where either I need to kill or be killed. I choose to live, so I will kill for that chance.

Any other questions relevant to the topic?

"Do you think your SELF is above all behavior that occurs in other humans?"
Sure I do. I think that just living an honest helpful life has caused this to happen, and I envoke others to try this same path I am on, as it has been quite successful for me thus far, and guess what, I didn't need the RCC to achieve it.

Imagine that!!

I was watching Family Feud the other day and one of the questions was, "Name something you look forward to when going to Church"?

the first person says - Worship
the second person says - prayer but then the host says we need another answer because prayer is worship.

lololol..I thought wow, the world knows prayer is worship but catholics don't..lol

Ya know June, I think you are finally beginning to grasp certain characteristics of life.

"Self shifts with the tide of experience."

How right you are.

As one learns about their Self, and learns that understanding it will be helpful, the 'tide of experience' does get intertwined with life's actions, due tot he knowledge gained from an experience.

One begins to see that an experience was either successful or not, and thus learns that there can be another chance to be successful. So they use the experience to better the next try.

Perception is a component of success.

To quote Thomas Edison and his light bulb experiments after failing to acquire a working prototype after 1000 tries.....

"I didn't fail 1000 times, but to get to the final product, I had 1000 steps to achieve."

It is better to be optimistic and succeed, than it is to be pessimistic and think you will fail.

I watched a program where a Jew admitted that cannibalism was practiced in the ghettos where the Jews were starving.

I suggest that real life brings the most arrogant humans down to humble them in one way or another.

Mother Teresa preached that women who had abortions were evil offenders of "god." But "Mother" never had her own children to in turn watch them starve to death from lack of food.

It's easy to preach holiness, when one is living in comfort, and Mother under her smock was not a skeleton by any means.

I am qualified. Unfortunately for you, you've jumped past many reasons and just make unfounded conclusions, without utilizing all the possibilities of the statement.

I am qualified to teach and lead my children on a path to know what is right from wrong. I lead them.

I am also qualified to teach others on how to practice "lean manufacturing", which also shows I am a leader and the credentials to teach these steps.

I am also qualified in leading people, just because of what you stated, "through the shift of experience". As I learn, there are others who have not learned what I have, thus, I can lead them to be also successful.

I'm sorry you don't like to teach others these these.

Maybe that is why you decided to be an Atheist. You couldn't realize the importance between good and bad.

*shrugs*

Like I said, your "Christian" attributes appear to have never left your bedside. You may never admit this, but if you took the time to see what you post now and what you used to probably post to others when you "were a so-called Christian", you will realize that there is no difference at all.

As is all theology ... your theology is wacky!!!
An infant has no sin, you will eventually grow up and then you will end up doing something that will be defined as sin, like not telling the truth, stealing, or cheating to name a few, then you will be someone who has sinned and needs God's forgiveness. To receive this forgiveness one has to become a Christian and I urge you to go to the nearest Church of Christ and get baptized and walk in newness of life as a child of God.

She is the perfect model for us to follow as a Christian.
Thanks Nick.,.I still don't understand why some Orthodox Churches teach it as truth and some don't.
