Why we do what we do...
OK so I've noticed as of late somethings that made me think...thought I'd pass them along...here goes.
It seems to me that alotta folks do whats right according to themselves. I will have to admit, that on occation I am good at rationalizing things, to make it what I want...but Im thinking more along the lines of morals.
Perhaps folks dont even realize they do this???
Seems that for most instances, folks are good at heart, but when it comes to a time that doing the wrong thing will benifit NUMERO UNO, then it becomes ok cross the line. Then we hear the "reasoning for it" ahem EXCUSE ahem...
for those of you whom I've lost...Ill give an example.
No one will argue that killing a baby is wrong. Everyone will say thats appauling Im sure! But for abortion...it all of a sudden becomes the "womans choice". Since when has it been someone elses choice if someone lives or dies?!?!?!?!
Some would argue that during the frist trimester that the baby is just a "blob of flesh". I guess that means that all of yall that have kids, could have killed them back when they were only a "blob of flesh" Yeah right.
God says that He knew David "when he was made in secret" Not "after the first trimester. btw, if you belive in that first trimester stuff...I'd like to know that DAY where the baby turns from a blob to a living being...cause thats what you'd have to decide...which DAY...
Maybe thats a little to strong for some though...heres my point.
Where did we get the idea that the individual makes the decision about whats right/wrong? For the most part folks are good...but if you apply that concept, which many do...think about it...then we would have Chaos ALL THE TIME!
Now if you believe that there is no God...and that we are animals...or "king of the beasts"...then my argument should not make sense. Because if you believe in Evolution, then you must belive in survival of the fittests. Not, "majority rules" cause thats another version of people making decisions about what they deem right. And one person is no better than another...
Is killing folks with my car bad...wrong? Sure it is. If we're animals though...how could that be wrong????
I've only had 4 beers tonight...Im fine to drive...Where's the logic in that? It boils down to the fact that folks are selfish. We want to do what WE want to do. Not whats right...and DEFINATLY what God says.
I hope some of you would think about this. Im not saying that we should all be perfect and youre crap if youre not...but just think about what you do. Most folks know whats right and wrong...we just like to change it to suit ourselves.
If you dont know whats right and whats wrong...read your Bible. I dont think anyone can argue that if everyone we're TRUE Christians...IE, folks Truely doing what the Bible says...the world would be a better place.
For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil full of deadly poison.
