Two traditional viewpoints of moral authority were described by Rob. The first is represented by the “supernatural theistic” which is believed to come from divine revelation, or in other words, God making himself known. Along with this comes the spoken and written word, the Bible being the main source. In this arrangement God commands absolute authority and the fear of punishment is a basic tenant. The other system is based on rational ethics. It recognizes human values, believing that “evil” diminishes life, “good” enhances life. It sets up principals that relate to human life and needs. Consequences are taken into account. There is inquiry, sensitivity. Words that are avoided are: always, never. Admittedly there is not a clear cut choice of right or wrong. Intelligent thought is required.
About Rob Adamczyk
Rob Adamczyk religious background was rooted early in Catholicism to the point of wanting to be a priest. Subsequently being impressed with an evangelical Christian acquaintance, he departed from Catholicism and joined a Protestant fundamental church. But while continuing his religious quest several of his friends challenged his faith and the Bible. Realizing, eventually, the fallacy of the Bible, Rob felt more comfortable with a deist outlook rather than a theistic one, until settling on an agnostic/atheist stance.
