with Karl Faase
For generations in western democratic nations there was an agreed moral code that has centred around basic Christian ethics, it is the foundation to our legal system. This has changed and a new moral code is emerging. Authors Lyons and Kinnaman write there are new guiding principles, here are four:
One - To find yourself, look within yourself
Two – People should not criticise someone else's life choices
Three – To be fulfilled in life, pursue the things you desire most
Four – Enjoying yourself is the highest goal in life
We are so used to these principles we don't notice them anymore. But we need to see that this is a massive shift. We have moved from looking to a creator God as our central motivation, to focussing on ourselves.
Humanity now worships itself.
