TVKFool, "Have you ever considered the possibility that since for example christianity has no set laws to proclaim what is good and what is bad, and that since judaism changes their over time to encompass and even contradict torah on occasion, and that so many religions have the same basic tenants (be respectful and do no harm) that maybe just maybe, ethics and morality don't come from religion, but rather they take the pre-existing set of norms which are then put into religion for people to follow?

What I'm trying to say, is that I think things such as good and bad are inborn in us or they are taught to us by our peers. What is bad for societies survival is bad for society, therefore is bad for you. If people killed everyone then the tribe wouldn't survive, if they stole everything they wouldn't be very cohesive and would devolve into a fistfight or worse. While some others things like sexuality and family are probably nature based. Humans are generally monogomous. The men have the biological imperative to protect their young, but first they have to know the young one is theirs, so out of that stems the no cheating clause.

Maybe christians don't need a set of rules, maybe they already have one from outside of religion and they follow those while keeping in mind that Jesus is their lord and savior." Read my posts at and .Paul talks about sin. Teresa
