Morals and Ethical Values
As soon as I was able to read, my parents made me memorize the Ten Commandments. In addition, they took the time to explain each and every one to me. Even in the earliest years of my life, these rules seemed fairly basic and simple to understand. The scripture basically told me not to kill, steal, lie, disobey my parents, or be jealous of what my neighbors and friends had. For me, while I am not an extremely religious person, my morals are based on these commandments.
My religious beliefs are a combination of what I have been taught and what I believe in my heart. Some organized religions use people’s faith to justify the exact opposite of what was intended. I feel that religion has become too involved in economics and politics. I prefer to pray to God and live a good life, as opposed to adhering to strict religious guidelines.
My morals and ethical values are strongly influenced by my family. My parents have taught me, through their words and example, that marriage i
In today"tms society, people are far too influenced by money and class. My morals and values are a number of core values that my parents taught me, as well as many that I developed throughout my life experiences. Because of this, I will do my best to find a partner who I am confident will be by my side for a lifetime. I do not think that morals have anything to do with sex or gender. I would not say that it is bad to have sex before marriage because I believe that sex is a positive thing when two people love each other, regardless of whether they are wearing wedding rings or not. I cannot honestly say that I have always stuck to my morals and never fell off the ethical path. I do not want to be a divorcee nor do I want my children to be part of a divorced family. For example, not everyone believes that it is not all right to steal, cheat, hurt people and commit crimes. When I put someone else"tms feelings or needs before my own, I feel that I am practicing good ethics. My morals tell me that this is wrong. In my opinion, morals are mostly about being a good person and treating others well. Maybe if I had continued down the wrong path, the feeling would have subsided but, for me, the feeling has always been enough to push me back on the right path. If I know, in my heart, that something is wrong, I will not try to come up with reasons to make it right. If they are not careful and bring a child into the world with committing to one another, it becomes a negative and immoral event.
