Melanie, our gracious hostess has posed these questions for us in this week’s SYW
Is any one person’s life worth more than another’s? Why or why not?
We cannot be the judge of the worth of a person’s life. There is just that much that the eye can see, and there is a lot that is hidden in plain view. Only our Creator can know what is inside our hearts and only He can decide what is our true worth.
Can a good person do evil things and remain a good person? Under what circumstances?
I think that a good person can do a few bad things, till he/ she will lose the label of a good person. Doing bad things pollutes our souls and no matter the circumstances, we will slowly start to be what our deeds are; Good or bad.
Is somebody morally culpable if they take a morally wrong action at the orders of a superior? What if their life is at stake?
This is a moot point. If their life or livelihood depends on obeying morally wrong orders, and they have no other choice, perhaps they may be excused but most people always have a choice. Like soldiers killing innocents women and children in a conflict, when they could let them go!
People had widely mixed opinions about illegal bananas, so let’s take that a step further this week: What would be the worst thing for a government to make illegal?
I think the worst thing government can do is to ban vacations! That’ll make people really mad and sad. Perhaps mad-sad or sad-mad!
GRATITUDE SECTION (Always optional).
Given global events right now, do you have words of comfort or an uplifting thought that you’d like to share with the world?
Profound questions this week. Thanks a lot Melanie.
