I know alot of ppl who are a member of church and who claim to practice this religion or that religion. But outside of church they are awful ppl. I think in alot of cases religion is a way for ppl to cover up and make themselves feel better about what a shitty person they are. I am not saying this about every person. But a majority of the ppl I know this is the case :/ hmmmm. Do they pray to God to be a decent human being?

And from what well will this empathy be drawn? Sometimes I feel like I’m doing alright – loving those around me. But I often come up dry – I don’t love those around me – and worse: I harbor hostility toward them – in thought and even in deed. The line between right and wrong becomes blurred. Right seems to become what is right for me. Wrong seems to become whatever others are doing. I am not my own god, and in my selfishness I have wandered away from the one true God. When my empathy is anything less than… Read more »

empathy does not equal right or wrong. I can feel for a person in a bad situation, but that is as far as empathy goes. If a person made their situation and I get them out of it, but they go right back to the bad situation again later, I have had empathy, but I have not done what is right. Feelings do not make something right or wrong.

It’s your conscience and your humanity that make you able to decipher right from wrong. Upbringing helps, but it is still possible to be an incredible person having had a difficult one. Religion has no baring on human decency, in fact sometimes it’s used as a disguise at an attempt to cover up the most inhuman behavior!

Incorrect statement and leading athiests in the world would disagree with this saying they cannot determine between right and wrong!!!Is it right to kill a mass murderer???An empathic person could argue either way and make a good argument for each case. Morality is an absolute and cannot be subjective.

So sorry so many people are bitter because Christians let them down. Without God, there is no good or evil, and our existence is random and means nothing. Praying for all the rotten Christians and the unbelievers, we are all loved by our Lord.

Religious morality is about obedience based on the S words which are Subjugation Servitude Submission Subservience Slavery and Succumbence regardless of what is the correct thing.

Morality to be is doing what is right.

Empathy is something that is taught. If you say that your morals prevent you from doing something and you are standing behind your religion you are more than likely lacking in empathy. There shouldn’t be a “reason” for your morals. You either have them, or you don’t. You don’t need religion to discern right from wrong.

If Someone dont understand that all moral ideas historicaly came from the religion values, thats sound more like empathy with ignorance. You dont need to be a religion person today to notice that in western society´s the ordinary morals (among atheists too) came from our ancestors roots in cristianity.

Not true! People do not understand the purpose of religion and how to differentiate between a true religion and a sect or schism. We prefer to make it up as we go along! And here we are!

If you can’t determine right from wrong it’s not empathy nor religion! It show your parents had no idea as role models! If you rely on religion to determine right from wrong then ‘your’ more fucked up than your parents! ?

That’s incorrect to say bad morals = lack of empathy ( i agree with the first statement strongly tho).
typically psychopaths tell the difference between right and wrong very, very well but have little or no sense of empathy

But if the promise of earning brownie points towards a ticket into heaven keeps you from being an asshole now then by all means go right ahead with your walk with Jesus or who ever you believe in. If we were to just be decent and treat each other with a bit of kindness none of us would have to die to go to heaven cause we’d have heaven right here on earth.

Sarah Cohen Really ??? Are you for real ?? Lol. Shalom o laïkum and salam alaïkoum are the same. If what you where saying was true, then surely you could tell us more about “some religions” that consider the majority of the human race as “goys”, and the right for the “elected people” to rape babies legally, as far as their religion is concerned. Kindly shed some light on that subject please.

An inherently false statement, as some people do need religion to discern right from wrong. How empathy became a moral issue in this is beyond me. A great example of passive aggressive denigration of religion. This is gaslighting of a different color. The first statement is correct, and, left alone, would be profound and true, however, the following bullshit just cuts the legs out from under it.

What a lot of sweeping statements and generalisations!! The moral code was laid down in the Ten Commandments, and our laws are loosely based on them today. It sounds to me that in some perverse way a lot of these comments suggest that if you go to church you are in fact a bad person. What a load of utter rubbish.

Right and wrong come from the Christian viewpoint.. if there is no good or evil.. there is no right or wrong. Many who would do away with God have enjoyed living a fair society because of Christian values and morals. . As more people come into this world not believing in God morals will continue to decline along with life as we used to know it. Why act as a decent person if there’s no reason to be good??

Religion is doctrine which is “of man”… Faith is the belief that there is something greater than “self”… If man needed “religion” in order to know right from wrong, then which religion??? So many doctrines from which to choose???

The Christian religion provides the basis for why we should be empathetic. Empathy is not a stand-alone value. You aren’t a good person just because you exercise unreflective empathy. Whoever posted this would have to agree that there are some things toward which you should not be empathetic, like a child molester. So, empathy, like any other virtue, must rest on something even more basic than it. That basis is found in the fact that God exists and that He prescribes a set of virtues and the conditions under which they should be exercised.

This post completely missed the point. Nobody argues that you need religion to determine good and evil but that in order to objectively call something good or evil there needs to be a higher power arbitrating . Without an all powerful God morality becomes subjective and unable to be imposed in any fashion upon others, meaning that anything you can say is no longer absolute and thus I just have to say I don’t agree with you. That leaves us at a standstill and nobody can say what’s ultimately right or wrong. Morality with God is static and absolute. In… Read more »

Actually, the bible gave us the morals based on the 10th commandments. Why would be wrong to kill a person because you think he is a bad person? Or why would you respect your parents if they are supposedly mean to you? IMO Without the bible or religions, humans would not recognize right from wrong

Religion is the lazy way of studying the teachings people are supposed to be learning. The practice is actually much like school–in that you have an ordained teacher, and a following/group of students/people who ascribe to a the lessons and beliefs. It’s supposed to be a rational process influenced by critical thinking, group discussion, practice, and testimonies.

Unfortunately, there are too many people who don’t get that far–who see it as a title to be worn rather than a way of life and endless study/seeking of improvement.

Empathy has nothing to do with morality; the two are entirely different concepts. Morality is a system based on a truth that something is right or wrong. Empathy is a process in one’s brain that allows them to feel an emotion that they have no cause to feel, other than to commiserate with the person with whom they will share the emotion. I like a lot of quotes on this page. This, however, is fluffy nonsense.

John Bailey

No you don’t lack empathy, you lack moral education. An individual taught by ones parents to always respect others, tends to do so throughout their life. When tempered by logic religion “can” assist in that. When used as an outright end of all tools, it typically results in raising little zealots.

All you need is a properly working brain and a soul to determine right from wrong. Morals should be absorbed from the parents and religion should be based on your own feelings pulling you to have faith….
