How do you determine good morals? And have they changed over time? What I believe to be morally right has not changed much in 45 plus years. But I have seen morals of others change in a short amount of time. I seen people ( some within my own family) change their morals about different subjects that completely surprised me. Has political correctness replaced morals? Regardless of politics or religion each of us have morals. What I define as good morals may not be the same as someone else. Personally, I have no plans to change my morals for anyone.

Tramara Wilhite- Thank you for your answer
Angele Parris- Thanks for your answer.
This is part of the issue with good morals. If "students" had good morals, he/she wouldn't cheat in the first place. Sound to me like teachers go through a goat rope to teach, because students lack morals.
Do you know of the pants below the waist issue that boys face today? Some mothers have to buy the pants in big sizes. Some students ask me if they could use a calculator to check the answer. I was told that calculators only make the students cheat.
Angele Parris- Thanks again for your comment. There are many parents out there who don't have the courage or good morals to teach their own children. To me there is no excuse. Regarding calculators, I have no opinion for or against it.
Eric- Thanks for your answer. I believe that good morals can and should be improved upon. What I have a hard time understand is why does some people have good morals and then go in a completely different direction later in life. This baffles me.
I think that I might find myself distancing myself from God's blessings from time to time. But I have a Christian support group of friends and family that simply will not let me backslide and lose sight of repentance as a constant companion.
We are all trying to love like God and His son. They are able to love without condoning bad morals/behavior, may we learn the same.
Yes indeed that fine walk between tolerance and condoning on one side and correction and standing for something on the other, is one that can only be guided by God.
My Friend Eric seems to be pointing us to the Lord. So I need not comment here. As long as we are receptive to Grace - God's goodness and His mercy - we will and indeed must find a guiding Light in His Compassion. True morals follow the way of Love.
Rich- Many thanks for your answer. I too believe the bible has the best guideline for moral standards. But there are many whose morals are based on other sources. Where do they get their moral standards?
