Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

No Right and No Wrong...

“Who was the atheist who said ‘lying is wrong?’ I didn't get his/her name. Anyway, there is no right or wrong in the natural world. However, there are things that are a good idea while other things are bad ideas. That is not ‘good’ or ‘bad’ in the moral sense, but ‘good’ or ‘bad’ in the sense that if its a bad idea it might get you into some type of trouble, while a good idea might keep you out of trouble.”

You did the right thing to call that atheist out on the admission that lying is wrong. He let the cat out of the bag. But in your effect to put the feline back in, you put yourself onto a slippery slope.

So you think that there is no right or wrong? There are just good ideas and bad ideas. Do you remember little Jessica Lunsford? She was the nine-year-old girl who was kidnapped from her home in Homosassa, Florida in the early morning of February 24, 2005. She was raped and later buried alive (clutching her teddy bear) by 47-year-old John Couey who was living nearby. Nothing wrong there. Just a bad idea. I wonder why the judge gave him the death sentence?

Six million Jews gassed to death by Nazis. Bad idea, depending on your perspective. There were 200,000 people murdered in the United States in the 1990’s. A lot of bad ideas. Never mind. Nothing wrong done there.

This good idea/bad idea philosophy sure is going to save our country a lot of time and money in the future, because there will be no need for court systems, judges, lawyers, and prisons because there’s no right or wrong, just good ideas and bad ideas. And you can’t prosecute someone for having a bad idea.
