I Don't Know Why Everybody Doesn't Get This

My Dear Reader,

Today, it seems that I have something to say. I will spare you the context on this one, because trust me, you don't want me to go into it. This week's diatribe is as follows:

Right and Wrong are real things.

They are eternal. They are unchangeable.

Right and Wrong do not come into existence at our convenience. They do not appear once we pronounce them to be one thing or another. They do not bow to our judgements, our prejudices, or our selfishness. They take no notice of popular opinion or popular people. Something is Wrong or Right independent of us, our education, and our experiences.

Right and Wrong don't need us.

And while they're not changeable, they do depend on the situation. Not in what we see the situation to be, but rather, what the situation really is.

It is a great blessing that Right and Wrong are independent of human perception. It is how they are infallible.

Of course, Right and Wrong are devoid of purpose if they are not knowable or discernible. Thankfully, we have what we need to know what Right and Wrong are:

Right is what brings the Holy Spirit into our hearts.

Wrong is what drives the Holy Spirit away.

This is a universal and eternal truth.

Regards, best wishes, and self-honesty,

-Cecily Jane

I just wrote a blog about this... well, touching on this amidst other things. I completely agree with you, but what about exceptions to the rule? They aren't often, and as I said in my blog, believing you are the exception can get you into trouble. However, there are exceptions to EVERY rule.

Example? Nephi killed Laban. He killed another man to get something he needed. Yes, he was commanded too, but that commandment, that prompting from the Holy Ghost, allowed an exception to right and wrong. Sometimes what might appear wrong to one person, is not if it's within a different context.

I don't know the context of your argument today. Sorry if I am totally off in regards to that. There's just another side to look at.

Hope things are great with you, girl! Miss seeing you! :)

I just read this more carefully... I think we're on the same page. Haha!

I completely agree! There are exceptions, but the biggest problems we have come when people assume that they're the exception. And the Nephi example is spot on. That's something I was thinking about when I wrote this. I think the Spirit is there to tell us what the exceptions are. :)
