We continue the discussion on our Worldview, as we consider what informs ‘right and wrong’.
The question of what informs right and wrong is a complex one. There are several schools of thought on this matter, each with its own unique perspective.
One common view is that right and wrong are determined by a divine being or beings, such as God. In this view, morality is based on religious beliefs and teachings, and ethical principles are seen as commands given by a higher power.
Another view is that right and wrong are based on natural law or human reason. According to this perspective, certain actions are inherently right or wrong, regardless of the circumstances or cultural norms. This view holds that moral principles are objective and universal, and can be discovered through reason and reflection.
Some argue that right and wrong are socially constructed, meaning that they are shaped by cultural norms and values. In this view, ethical principles are not fixed or absolute, but are rather determined by the society in which they are developed and practiced.
Ultimately, the question of what informs right and wrong is a complex one that cannot be easily answered. It is shaped by our Worldview - whether we try to conform our faith within our culture or whether we see our culture as a subservient part of the much bigger divine story.
