If we are lucky enough to be born into a home where moral principles are good, then we will stand a chance of being law-abiding, but if we are also lucky enough to have a set of genes that enables us to be strong in the face of immorality and corruption, then that will be helpful. I think I can safely say that I have never made any decision because I think it might affect an after-life!!Quote
From the top down: World leaders, ordinary politicians, educators, the person in the street - what do we do because we are afraid of punishment, here and now, or in a possible afterlife?
Personally - neither! I think it is easier to think reasonably carefully before acting when one is old - we have more time!!Quote
All our actions, do we act because of a secret fear, or a happy conviction?
Hmmmmm, not sure, but I think I come down slightly in favour of giving them the benefit of the doubt, but it's not an easy question to answer.Quote
Western politicians, when going to church, which they like to be known for, are they honest, or can they simply without flinching, switch from being pious in church, to being ruthless and downright cruel in their working days?
It is a pity that so many nowadays appear to prefer the banal and trivial on social media. Let's hope the world will carry on muddling along after we're gone, GG!!Quote
Lots of ordinary people are very kind and caring towards those in need. Why? What is the difference between them and politicians? Maybe the salary?
I do not see myself as more righteous than anybody else, I am trying to analyse!
