Do you believe there is a clear difference between right and wrong?

Partially true, but one must point out that everyone you mentioned also had what they saw as a complete set of rights and wrongs. That it is different from your set or my set doesn't change the fact that they had things they saw as wrong and things they saw as right.

But I would also point out that even Jesus Himself saw the world in something of a gray. When He first came across Mary Magdelene, she was a prostitute. And she was about to be stoned by the crowds for being one, as the law that God handed down had said to do.

That is when Jesus said that "he who is without sin cast the first stone." This convinced them to leave, but in this case Jesus did convince many to go against the law of God Himself. Did Jesus sin because of this?

No. He was following the spirit of the law, which was to bring and keep all close to God so that they would follow Him and benefit by such. The crowd was following the letter of the law, but misunderstood its spirit and reason. Jesus saw that spirit and reason, and went against the law as it was written to uphold what it was about.

The situation was a gray area, Jesus found the way to a clearer right in it.

So there can be clear differences in right and wrong, but in many cases the situation can be a gray area.

That's a good question, and it gives me pause, because one might initially think that of course, there is a clear difference.

but not so... all things are relative, and it is hard to declare something as being absolute, and correct for everyone. One person's truth is another's idea of insanity.

I could say that it is clearly right that we are here, since we ARE here. But some would probably even question that!

I remember reading something in one of Robert Heinlein's book... he said that if there is one true purpose for our existence it is to reproduce our own kind, and to keep our species alive. I would consider that to be an absolute truth FOR US but not necessarily for some other species on another planet who might run into some of our outer space junk.

interesting question!

This is a good question.

There are so many different belief systems out there. What's correct in one area is totally outrageous to another group.

And it all seems to be the luck of the draw as to where you were born and what you were taught

For some reason I keep thinking of the Hippocratic oath...

"first do no harm"...

It can be very confusing, especially when one group spouts reasons for what they are doing, but in actuality, they have a whole different agenda behind what they are saying and doing....am I clear as mud???

The Bible can be very confusing since there was a problem with the translations of the original text and how certain groups transform it to meet their own needs. Even some leaders have treated the 10 Commandments as ala carte items-meaning they pick and choose the ones they will follow

Each of us has to read and learn all we can and decide what our own personal truths will be and hopefully "do no harm"
