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. Here, I agree with Hick.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.”
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.
1. The omnipotence argument against Landau is: “Premise 1: If God commands an act because it is moral, then God cannot command an immoral act. Premise 2: If God cannot command an immoral act, then God is not omnipotent. Premise 3:
Socrates asks Euthyphro “is the holy, holy because it is loved by the gods?” or “is something loved by the gods because it is holy?” Euthyphro was charging his father with murder. Not that he physically put his hands on one, but while another was awaiting the decision, his father left the man to die of starvation and lack of water. In Euthyphro’s eyes, his father was the murder of this man. The reason he is prosecuting his father is because he believes in the Gods and that no matter if someone is of kin if it is not right then it just isn’t right.
Ethics teaches us that we have a set of moral guidelines that enables us to from our conscience which then allows us to live a righteous life. One exemplary figure who was able to define what ethics is throughout his life, is Martin luther King. Martin Luther King Jr. was a minister, a civil rights activist, and a moral person. He fought for the rights of African Americans who were greatly prejudiced in America during the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties. He fought to terminate segregation and to aid the African Americans who were subjected to bias within America.
