So really you taught your kids the same thing you just don't call it sin.
I call it the difference between Right and Wrong. They know in their very bones the difference between Right and Wrong - and it took no "religion" or "church" or "belief" to see that.
Yes it's free will.
If I tell you that you shouldn't drink bleach because it will kill you, does that mean I have removed your free will to drink bleach?
And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.
And if someone were to begin teaching you kids they should love everyone but blacks? What standard would you appeal to to say your standard was right and their standard was wrong?
"Right and Wrong" aren't things that can be taught. Their understanding comes from deep seated feelings of empathy.
Someone might try to say that, but my kids would know it was a CROCK OF SHYTE. There's not a racist thing in how I raised my kids here at all - not even close. Neither was there in my OWN upbringing.
We keep talking in ciricles because you keep begging my question.
What is the Objective standard of Right and Wrong you were appealing to when you were raising your Kids?
You said love neighbor as you love yourself.
I would shove them out the door.
So what if someone said no thats wrong and its right to love yourself and forget your neighbor?
You see you have no standard of morals to appeal to, other than your mothers...
I believe you know right and wrong because God gave all humans regardless of belief the ability to know what is right and what is wrong.
I'm not begging the question
Not hurting other people.
Right and wrong come from within, and can't be taught. What is the reason that you would steal from some one else?
