Heb 13:8-9 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. 9 Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them.
The church system of "men" change their beliefs to fit their corrupt plans with the desires of "their" people. Those following them in building their kingdoms of men. But those following the Christ and building HIS KINGDOM, do not change from scripture truths.
celafoe- 1John 4:1 states: 1 Beloved, do not believe every Spirit, but "test"the Spirits , whether they are of God, because many false prophetshave gone out into the world......... Celafoe, you are corect.
Basically, you are right until proven that you are wrong. Someone is always going to differ with your idea of what is right. Proverbs are not persuasive, as Machiavelli and Shakespeare have more knowledge of what is in the mind of man.
There are two possible answers. 1. Right and wrong are defined by religion, rules outlined from God. Within the rules, right, outside the rules, wrong. 2. Right and wrong are based on how you feel, the most powerful person having the ability to over-rule others. Then you get Nietzsche's view of uber-men having their own morality, and everyone else's morality is inferior and irrelevant. And it is rule of the strong or privileged over everyone else.
Man likes to contemplate matters of the Spirit and come up with conclusions. Real Right and Wrong are metaphysical. They are totally not bureaucratic in religious or institutional analysis. Taking a life is wrong in the thought process. Fine. Taking a life for good reason is values and morality based. Try as I might I cannot find a translation that actually changes "Thou shall not kill" into thou shall not murder. Right and wrong are left to our human condition. Most of us give it a shot to do right. That is clear by our normally harmonious condition with exceptions. Others just wake up in the morning and set out to pass judgment on others and act accordingly. And maybe they are right part of the time. My wife loves it when I act right --- and I have no idea what that means half the time.

I think that the Christian religion would have been entirely different, if Apostle Paul hadn't screwed things up. It is my firm belief that if Christians really want to be Christ-like, they need to have a dual...
Where do morals come from?Do morals come from the Bible, from man, from reason and logic or from somewhere else? I am intrigued with the concepts of good, evil and morality and how people come to define them in...
