It is often mentioned that this nation was built on 'Christian values'

How many do you see hold true today?

<!--[if gte mso 9]> Eight fundamental social values have been chosen as

particularly important.

Grace

– a subversive value! Giving people more than they deserve.

Hope

– not a guarantee of immunity from harm but a conviction that God is always present

Faith

- the means to real depth in relationships of all kinds

Love

– means to love the unlovely

Justice

– for all (not ‘just-me’). A concept biased in favour of the disadvantaged.

Joy

– impossible to legislate for this but an essential social value

Service

– meaning is found in service rather than self-centredness

Peace

– not just the absence of fighting but positive well-being

 

.

Morals: interesting topic, I pasted my pennyworth over from a Facebook page on discussion of human behaviour.

"I have just been reading some articles on the influence of genetic structure concerning behavioural matters.

One such paper, http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/exchange/node/1454.

I'm more inclined to go along with the belief that we become what we are through what we experience and learn in our journey through life.

Our behaviour is influenced by our upbringing. E.G., if one is brought up in a good Christian and loving family then one is more inclined to have a 'world view' according to what that environment presents, on the other hand, if one is brought up in an abusive and violent manner the similar situation applies.

Biblical scholars use the term for this as one's 'noetic structure', the summary of life's experience that brings about a world view. There is many a discussion we could have on this; is a person born homosexual, has a paedophile got the same reason to be that, etc.?"

My take, one can 'unlearn' that which has been 'learned'.
