My morality is based on two things. Loving God with my whole heart soul and mind and loving my neighbor as myself.

Those are some nice things to do or not do,which the bible teaches at 1 Cornithians 6:9-11 besides not stealing being violent, it mentions not being sexually immoral, an adulterous person,idol worshippers. And at Matthew 7:12 states ," All things,therefore, that you want men to do to you, you also must do to them."
The many comments posted were painful to even read about. I join you in experiencing that same pain. Understanding why we die and the hope for the dead has been very comforting to me. Knowing that this is not God's will and why He has allowed it has given me the ability to see the … Read more
It wouldn't be much different than what we see now. Man does not have the ability to direct his own foot steps. He has been trying to do that for some 6,000 years and the results are the same. What we need is the loving direction from our creator to have any real success in … Read more
