Renick writes, "What if God wishes for this to happen contingent upon the natural roll of the dice? To say God could not do this," he continues, "seems to say God is less than fully powerful." Finally, after studying these readings and doing some additional web searches I have decided that evil is the outcome of some of God's good. God sets everyone up on the good path in life, watches over their moves, and gives two paths when necessary. When he does set the two paths aside he does still know the complete outcomes.
This means that whatever God actions that He determines are right are therefore considered right. For example, it is commonly thought that killing someone is wrong and immoral, but under this theory, if God were to say that it is okay to kill someone, than an individual
Eyewitness misidentification is a major problem that has an effect on adequate policing. One major goal and priority of law enforcement is justice. They should focus on prosecuting the correct person because if they are prosecuting the wrong person they are ruining an innocent persons life and justice is not being served. Many problems can arise from misidentification. It often leads to an innocent persons rights being infringed on.
Many religious philosophers have observed that the act of taking a human life is not only a wrong to the individual but to the humanity as a whole, irrespective of the circumstances. The views of the religious philosophers can be accepted to a point, but they fail to explain how does a person suffering from acute pain without having any hope of recovery is jilted of any ineffaceable right to opt out of their crestfallen
Warren seeks confirmation that his God exists so anything he sees to be true, he assumes to be true. These false assumptions are dangerous but are also merely human nature. Therefore, I think it’s necessary for everyone—even the most brilliant people—to challenge their own beliefs every once in a while. We might change our beliefs about God and maybe learn something about the fundamental nature
Even if it means letting innocent people die for crimes they did not do. Arthur Miller makes it clear that having a good name is more important that the truth, Proctor, Parris, and Danforth all decided their name and reputation was more important than the lives of innocent people. Their decisions went deeper and deeper and made things get worse. Having a good name effected how Proctor acted because he doesn 't want to tell the truth about things he knows just to keep his name. Reputation effects Parris because, he doesn 't want to go against the bible and be accused of working with the devil.
Simple minded men can mistakenly interchange an opinion or passion for an intuition. This can lead to dangerous territory. Lewis addressed hard topics such as the death penalty. He said that "The doctrine that war is always a greater evil seems to imply a materialist ethic, a belief that death and pain are the greatest evils. But I do not think they are.
Following, Philo states that he will approve of all the arguments Cleanthes has presented thus far, because at the end of it all, Cleanthes cannot compile a working argument. This is simply, because Philo claims that if a “Deity” has unlimited power, as has been approved, then the “Deity” will not accept any malevolent acts in the world. Thus, having malevolent acts in the world, means that the “Deity can be kind and ultimately powerful, for these inconsistencies are the way man thinks. Philo identifies these key points which is part of his initial point that was made, what was rejected by Cleanthes, however Cleanthes is now forced to accept this, if he wants to maintain the argument that a “Deity” is endless.
This belief rings true. Pride is a bad thing to posses. Too much pride will hurt people. In the book “The Scarlet Ibis” the narrator says “Once I succeeded in teaching Doodle to walk i began to believe in my own infallibility”p.173 this shows that the narrator thinks that he is infallible which means that he thinks he can 't make mistakes and that he is perfect. We usually think of God as being infallible.
He does agree with Didion that religion is a delusion, but he believes that religion has cause an immense number of problems. That religion is just for people to feel better about their actions. He states, "In the opinion of religious people, however, the private comfort that religion brings more than compensates for the evil done in its name." He argues that the secular-ethical position is the right position. Basically, this positon is that morality should be defined strictly by logic, facts, intuition, and empathy.
When someone believes in God, they learn there is always room for improvement within themselves, which for most people can be hard to accept. Following this, another strong argument Freud made which was rather convincing, was that everything can be explained by the scientific method because it is the only source of knowledge humans can physically prove. Therefore, Freud believes if God cannot be proven by the scientific method, he can’t be real. However, this as well cannot be entirely true because while science does explain a lot, a lot of science is only made up of theories that are not actually proven. Freud is not realizing that while the
I believe every man was born with the ability to differentiate between right and wrong. Although we might want to justify his argument by considering a situation where what someone thinks is right might be what another person 's classif as wrong, but in a situation whereby the sinner accepted his wrong doing and come forward to seek a forgiveness; that is to say, He already acknowledged that he did something terrible. so therefore the argument of “what wrong for someone is right for another” cannot justify Luther 's opinion on this because He (Luther) presumed that
Conducting surgery on someone who is not mentally able to make sound decisions can be considered medical negligence. Although Charlie 's doctors were not ethical, some people believe the doctors ' actions were ethical. The doctors did not hurt Charlie, nor did they lie to him. All the doctors did was not tell him the outcome of they procedure, but they did that in order to spare him. In summary, Charlie Gordon 's doctors were not ethical because they did not follow the Hippocratic Oath or ask themselves the necessary ethical questions doctors must ask themselves.
Medical Malpractice and Tort Reform Medical malpractice involves negligent care by a physician. The physician has either done or has not done something (neglect) to make a medical situation worse. A patient may come in with what seems to be something that isn’t serious, but it turns out to be worse because all that could have been done was not done. Medical malpractice in some states results in a cap in damages. The elements of this cause of action according to Zachary Matzo are “duty, breach, causation, and damages” (Matzo, 2015).
While we have a loving God who is perfect in all of His ways, we humans went against our Creator, corrupted ourselves, and placed ourselves under His judgement. Another main idea of Christianity is the problem of evil, how it came about, and how it hurts God’s people. The Bible gives many reasons as to why God would allow evil for a greater purpose, but it does not answer every question that
