So I've been thinking about ethics lately. Being one of these crazy people who believes that there are rights and wrongs, things that are better and things that are worse.

Part of the problem with ethics is that we take ethics so damn personally. If I disagree with something there will be people take my disagreeing as a sort of personal attack. The church (and just people in general; I am just care more about the church than the rest of the world I guess) needs to learn how to actually discuss issues without being personally offended. We need to learn to listen to each other but also more importantly we need to learn to listen to God.

Ethics are not about making some in and some out. Ethics are not about division. Rather, ethics are about discovering God and God's ways. About discovering what it means to live according to God's ways.
