He particularly suffers when he an ought-in the normal order of things-to have share in this good and does not have it. Thus in a Christian view, the reality of suffering is explained through evil, which always, in some way refer to good. Suffering is the process of undergoing a painful experience and also we can say that it is the result of evil. The problem of evil and suffering always creates objections for God’s goodness and His omnipotence. Yet, from Christian point of view, these questions lead man to see suffering in a positive way rather than negative.
Whilst utilitarianism supports democracy and encourages people to act selflessly, it is due to the intuitive dislike that utilitarianism prompts in the minds of many, that it has been subject to several criticisms. In this essay, I will use both moral intuitions and examples to outline three of the strongest objections to utilitarianism. I will furthermore illustrate how such objections ultimately show utilitarianism to be unsuccessful. To achieve this it is, however, necessary that I discuss the concept of utilitarianism, as well as how such a theory influences the decisions and actions of moral agents. Utilitarianism is a moral, consequentialist theory that holds that the right action to perform is that which produces the best consequences,
Therefore, self-control is not self-gratification, indulgence, weakness and unrestraint. All of these practices lead a person to sin because they are seeking to please only themselves and not God. Those who seek to gratify themselves do not seek the needs of others. Many people seek things that will make them feel better about themselves which may lead to serving others but their motivation is self-centered. Selfishness is a large obstacle to self-control.
Because each person does not know what values and norms another person has, in order to keep oneself safe, it causes people to draw away from others. Another reason why I disagree with this theory is because it is self-contradictory by stating that two views can both be right. If it is true that nothing is right or wrong, then why believe this theory if there are no absolute truths? By stating that there are no objective truths, that is an objective
Rather than blaming their lack of skill, they can blame their lack of attentiveness and motivation. The four main reasons for procrastination are: fear of failure, excessive perfectionism, low energy levels, and lack of focus. “One of the most common causes of procrastination is a deep- rooted fear of failure” (James). If a person never even begins to attempt something, they are guaranteed not to fail. Procrastination can be used as sort of a security blanket.
When we lead ourselves to believe our illusions, we can find ourselves trapped in an unrealistic perception of life. These illusions are attempts to distract ourselves from the reality that we are not satisfied with life. When these illusions turn out to be false, we often attack those who revealed the illusion to us. This is perhaps to hide our anguish, and feelings of inadequacy. These illusions are almost always damaging to us; however, to view life in a realist perspective is often too hard.
Finally, let's be real What's the point, if we expect others to be real, but we ourselves are not? Let us be honest and real here to accept that this is how the world is. We don't always get what we deserve. There would still be people, who would misunderstand, underestimate us, treat people as resources and seek problems in everything we do. Let that not affect us from being what we are and what we do.
He explains critical engagement is good for tolerance because, one is simply not putting up with something, but is showing respect by criticizing it. “But they also can’t ignore it, for to ignore something that is of central importance to someone else is demeaning and disrespectful. The only way to show respect for a way of life of which we disapprove is through active critical engagement.” (Schwartz, 14) Schwartz advocates that critical engagement is beneficial tolerance, however, critical engagement is a two-way street and could cause potential harm. “Misrecognition shows not just a lack of due respect. It can inflict a grievous wound, saddling its victims
They justify this action by saying that they are protecting people they love from the truth; though I don’t think this is a useful action since the truth always comes out. Since the modern days have changed, people lie to others to hide a truth, to seem more interesting, to hide fears and manipulate. This may be caused by insecurity or other personal factors. Honesty is an important value for our society to be in harmony. Humans are not able to love if we are not honest.
