Moral truth is in objective reality, as Christ taught.
Christ taught that there is a logic to morality defining human
responsibilities based upon the laws of life. Evidence shows
that sin victimizes persons and corrupts minds, but theology
portrays sin as being subjectively arbitrated by God and
therefore in need of being interpreted by those who speak for
The fatalism left the world's moral analysis with a large gap in
it. The gap is in the abstract basics.
Basics are the realities upon which other realities depend.
They create the bedrock of all subjects.
This website defines the basics of morality and builds upon
them to explain moral concepts. A definitive moral analysis is
not produced elsewhere, because theologians do not
understand the abstractions of morality. They use religion to
rationalize the subconscious forces which cause sin rather
than overcome them.
What is often not accepted about morality is its objective
origins, it's social significance and the related human
responsibilities. While some of it is obvious and cannot be
denied, it is not in the theology. For example, bigotry, elitism,
jealousy, domination, exploitation and oppression are not
corrected by theology.
Without a definitive analysis, errors cannot be corrected.
With it, errors cannot be sustained.
In a different way, Christ produced the same subject, but he
could not get very far into philosophical abstractions due to
obvious limitations including an absence of a written medium.
He used parables heavily to stabilize important points in
Reason is the primary human responsibility. Corrupted persons
attack and obstruct the reasoning process. This material
counters the corruption by describing how to add reason to
The validity of moral analysis must be considered in these
Truth is Universal.
There is only one truth, because it is objective and universal.
For example, one and one can only equal two, not three or
Christ created the starting point in evaluating moral truth,
and he said we should judge for ourselves what right and
wrong are. (Luke 12:57).
Judging for ourselves does not mean the truth is negotiable
or arbitrary. Quite the contrary, it is invariable. It has origins
in objective reality, which is the same for everyone.
But there are also elements of it that are beyond human
minds. One of Christ's primary purposes was to describe
essential elements of the truth which humans could not
The undeterminable elements of truth are the nonbasic
(perceivable) specifics. Being nonbasic, they cannot be
determined through logic. By contrast, the basics are
determined through a combination of logic and evidence.
Speaking on one's own.
Then Christ said that he who speaks on his own is bent on
self-glorification. He said he was not speaking on his own but
was told what to say by God, as did Isaiah and Jeremiah.
Does this requirement contradict that of determining for
ourselves what truth is? Not at all. One of the primary human
responsibilities is to determine what reality is through a
process of rationality. Describing how this process works is
the primary purpose of this material.
What then is speaking on one's own? It is producing specifics
and complexities which cannot be determined through logic in
combination with evidence.
For example, what is the evidence and logic to indicate what
speaking in tongues is? I can't imagine what the logic and
evidence would be. Therefore, I must take someone else's
word for it, and they become a god over my reality.
This method of creating gods is the equivalent of
gnosticism one of the pillars of heresy. Similar to it is
authoritarianism, which is pervasive throughout the
professions. It says "if you cannot understand how one and
one equals three, we can; and therefore we must be gods
over your reality."
Freud and Einstein serve that purpose. They supposedly
revealed something that most of us cannot understand, and
therefore the gods must interpret it for us.
Charisma is the modern version of the gnostic heresy. The
charismatics say only they can speak in tongues and
understand what it means, and therefore they must control
The persons who promote such elitistism are not aware of
the objective origins of reality and the human responsibility
for evaluating it through rationality. This website attempts to
explain how the process works in applying rationality to
morality. It is not as much a question of who is right and who
is wrong as whether the proper procedure is used to derive
Certainly, in terms of slogans, everyone assumes they are
rational and objective, but they often do not have the
slightest clue as to what those concepts are, and they defy
them in practice. There is therefore a need to develop truth
on this subject.
The official Catholic theology, which is supposed to be God's
infallible word, says that it is a sin to apply rationality to
morality, because human minds are too imperfect, and church
authorities must do it for them. (See "Veritatis Splendor").
The most basic human function and responsibility is to
produce rationality. The most important thing to apply it to is
morality. There could be no greater injustice, loss of rights
and freedom or perversion of human existence than to not be
able to apply rationality to morality.
Of course, the standard of relating to morality without
rationality is a contradiction which cannot be achieved.
Those who speak for God and represent church authorities,
which includes conservative laymen, must apply some degree
of rationality to the subject, however faulty it might be. The
primary significance of the theology is to block criticism and
correction of errors.
So there is more than a whim in producing this website.
There is a high degree of necessity in producing truth on this
subject. Truth cannot be decreed; it evolves automatically
through the interactions of realities.
One of the most important moral principles is that sin cannot
exist in the light of truth. The reason why is because even
the most corrupted persons (including satan) cannot openly
admit their sin. Sin must always be concealed, denied or
Therefore, sin can only be perpetrated where there is
darkness, meaning a deficiency of truth. And the most
corrupted persons are the most sensitized to truth reacting
most extremely to justify themselves when truth is produced.
What this principle adds up to is that truth is how sin is
overcome. Since all problems are caused by sin, developing
truth is the answer to problems. However, corrupted persons
hate anyone who produces truth about problems or morality
in general, so the path is very difficult.
