Yes, I agree.Quote
Metaphysics notwithstanding, I would imagine that you and I have similar ethical codes, Susan.
Yes, I agree here too. Perhaps it is a pity that the word' conscience' is also on a list of words in decline. It is a word that, for those of my generation, had a major influence! The word 'ethics' is an improvement but when I was younger, I would have found that word to be one not associated with my everyday life. We refer to conscience as an internal trait, but , ethics does not have the same personal association, I think.Quote
There have been many notable lapses, but I try to live by what my conscience tells me is good. In the context of my own faith, my way is to not overly question if various behaviors are or not a sin. My 'faith' is that God knows that this is too broad a subject for mortals, and that such filtering is okay in general. Personally, Susan, I believe that one's conscience is a good identifier of situations that call for ethical emphasis. : )
