Hick, however, might relate higher morality back to the hedonistic world mentioned in the argument above. There is a reason for our world to have suffering since it is built into the structure of the world. That reason, Hick argues, is for “soul-making”, or character building (129). Without having some suffering, then there would be no characters, such as courage. The higher morality of God relates back to that because He has a legitimacy for that suffering.
Good morality is achievable without an outside influence, and religion may, in fact, take away from human morality by influencing a person into doing what is considered to be right as a way of earning a reward in the afterlife rather than just doing what is right for the sake of doing what is good in the world. Though religion itself can be considered a moral guideline, this may not be the complete truth. The concept of morality is that of doing what is right without expectations for reward. Religion generally has a reward system for doing good deeds. Some examples would be having good karma
For him, if our mind agreed with our voluntary actions to some law then it is considered as good but if our mind disagreed to it then it is considered as bad. Things that are good are those things which we are comfortable to deal with and things that are bad are those things that we could not fathom; pain and sorrows. In 19th century (late modern period) Moral philosophy is still a huge shot for the philosophers. Immanuel Kant demonstrated his thoughts about morality and rationality. For him as a rational being, one would not only ask for the right thing to do yet would also make a list on the things that he/she would want to attain in life or in other words, things that he/she would ought to do.
In Indiana’s defense, some might say that Indiana’ RFRA is mirrored from the federal RFRA, where it protect people’s religious freedom and doesn’t specifically discriminate against LGBT people. However, the federal RFRA was intended to protect individual’s religious freedom from government intervention unless there was a compelling interest. On the other hand, Indiana’s RFRA protects private companies religious freedom and it justifies discrimination based on the name of religion. Overall the LGBT community should have rights that everyone have and laws that discriminate should be outlaw including Indiana 's RFRA. It discriminate against LGBT by letting religious business owner to deny LGBT people service and excluding them from the rest of the society.
Based on the passage deciphered, I believe the Puritans perceived their actions in the New World would be gratifying and righteous in the God’s sight. According to the Puritans religion you should live in unity, peace, and in love with all others, and anyone that no longer believe or strayed away form their beliefs would be exiled. Thereof no longer being just in the eyes of God. In my opinion the puritans actions were contrary to their own beliefs. It was quite selfish and unthoughtful in my eyes.
We cannot allow our beliefs and personal biases to influence the client. I believe this will be an ethical dilemma to deal. When my desire as the worker is to help the client work to the best of his/her interest and the need to respect his right to act in a way that the client feels best for him, may interfere with my job. Also, I consider confidentiality
This courageous leadership translates to Lewis’ preservation of Man, not because you are conditioning man, but because you will make sacrifices in order for man to survive. You will come about this moral development, not because it is intrinsic or tacit, but through reasoning. As you continue to grow and begin to feel out virtue and choice, you will be moved by the different stages of moral development (Kohlberg, 1976). It can be debated that being a leader is an aspect of Aristotelian virtues, but that is not what I am hoping you accomplish or to prove this wrong (Grint, 2007). I reiterate the idea that living virtuously through
Sameness has taken away values such as empathy, diversity, and memories for a peaceful, stable community. This community selected Jonas and the Giver to make decisions based on the memories of the past, before Sameness. Now no one but the Giver and Jonas know true values and emotions such as empathy, diversity, and memories but Jonas is determined to change that.Empathy, diversity and memories would have been important to create a positive community. Empathy would have been important in the community to make it positive . One example to support the answer is on page 110, it states “They have never known pain, he thought.” This supports the answer because Jonas feels alone, and that no one knows what he does.
To know what the Founders thought about religious freedom is important to understanding the first amendment. The Founders thought freedom of religion was important because of the fact that they believed if religious freedom was at risk, all freedom was at risk (Myers). They thought religious freedom was crucial to having a successful nation. The Founders also believed religious freedom caused more freedom and devotion (Myers). They thought this freedom was necessary to a limited government
My personal value system concerning human beings is based upon the inherent dignity and worth of all people who are members of my society. I will respect people’s dignity and worth by employing integrity on a daily basis. I also believe in being honest with all of my relationships because honesty is the backbone of any relationship. Therefore, when I begin a relationship with anyone, it should begin with a solid foundation. I feel like everyone has more good than bad morals in them so because of this anyone can change their bad behavior.
