Quick thought about morality
- Do what God tells you, even if it’s an immoral act (e.g. murder your son/daughter) because, “his ways are greater than ours”.
- Don’t do what God tells you not to because he really hates people making fun of him. I guess being God means you can’t have a sense of humour.
- Why? Because might makes right.
- Do no harm.
- Why? The world is a much nicer place to live in for everyone.
Believers, and many non-believers, draw a connection between religion and morality as if you can’t have one without the other. Religion doesn’t deal with morality at all. It deals in sin, which crosses moralities path on a few points, but ultimately has very little in common with it.
