Where do you personally get the sense of what you feel is "right" and "wrong"?
Morals and Morality: Finding the "right" isn't always easy. Do you feel that there are gradations in these (like gray areas)? Why or why not?
I believe alot has to do with how you are raised. Growing up you tell your children what is right and wrong. And part has to do with the person you are, how you were born.
I believe God gives us an innate ability to know what is right from wrong. You see it all the time where children were abused and never had a good moral upbringing. Some were even held prisoners of their home with no school or allowance to make contact with the outside world. Yet, they knew that what was happening to them was wrong. If we spent quiet time each day in meditation, I believe we would know the truth of what is right from wrong. The influences of the world today do not allow us to tap into that innate ability.
