DR OF DEATH
ok people here is a little test moral charactor, reply to this thread with a list of things you consider to be sins / im-moral.
and we'll discuss them.
and we'll discuss them.
To kill someone else outside of self-defense, is murder. A soldier (conveniently enough) puts him/herself into a situation where others will try to kill him/her, and thus becomes justified in killing (kill or be killed, so to speak).Originally posted by plus
Murder: What is a concrete definition of murder? Does a soldier do murder?
Yes. I don't think it can be emphasized strongly enough, as this is one of the (if not the very) worst sin one can commit against another.Rape: Everyone agreed that this is a sin?
Actually, theft is taking something from someone else without their permission. The only reason I can think of now, for it to be OK to steal, would be if you were serving a higher purpose (of some kind).Theft: Taking something from someone else? Under what conditions is it ok to do this?
Well, I don't think so, but I guess that (like every other point here) is up for debate.e.g. if they had first stolen it off you, is this ok?
to what extent? we are carnivours. (feel those fangs on your upper jaw?) they were designed to rip through the flesh of another creature. this is obviously a painful process for the little critter, but is it wrong?Originally posted by M. Gaspar
Cruelty to animals would BE a sin, as we have no right to take the pleasure from their existence ....to replace it with PAIN.
Maybe, then, it is a "sin" to take the life of any animal. Or maybe, on some level, there is an "agreement" that they will "give" their life...but this would not include pain.
The REAL question is: Who's the Judge???
WHICH society? Because if you accept that "sins" are basically from society and from man, then the conclusion is simple. Everything prohibited in your little book of law is sinful.Originally posted by drdeath
but in the context of society what would you say are sins/im-moral
How about something a bit more pragmatic, like: what works and what doesn't work...with regard to running a society, a relationship, or one's life.Originally posted by drdeath
ok lets do away with term sin, lets just ask what is moral / immoral, what do each of you think is immoral/wrong, and why. and what do you think is moral/right and why?
an excellent definition, M. the best post in the whole thread!Originally posted by M. Gaspar
