Where has morality gone? Just seventy years ago I was child attending Sunday school at our tiny Methodist church. It was there that we learned the Ten Commandments. We were taught these life-shaping lessons by dedicated and principled adults. As we came to understand each one, they made sense and most of us tried to live our lives following them. They worked!
Thou Shalt NOT
Take the Lord’s name in vain, Steal, Bear False Witness, Covet, Kill, Commit Adultery.
In the decades that followed these principles became hazy memories. Rarely mentioned in conversation and never again to be posted in public places, they have faded into history. The youth of today are not being introduced to them.
Much of society today operates with a list of Personal Life Choices. We make our own rules. Nothing is seen as wrong unless we decide that it is. If it feels good just do it.
Final Thought: Even if one does not believe in God and salvation, life lived by high personal standards and having others do the same would once again make life more pleasant for all. Perhaps that is too much to hope for but living as we are now does not seem to be working.
