As you know, animals are guided by instinct. While humans also have instinct, they also have Free Will and can pick and choose between good and bad options of thought and action.
One of God’s greatest gifts to mankind is Free Will. Theologians say that God provided this incredible gift so that man could choose to worship, adore and obey Him – by freely controlling his human instincts. Animals can’t do that.
Many atheistic and/or agnostic psychologists and sociologists reject man’s obligation to obey God’s laws, which they reject as the creation of religion. Instead, they promote the Personal Liberty Principle (PLP), which says man can do anything that does not harm others.
While PLP, unexamined, has a certain amount of appeal; upon closer examination, it is virtually impossible to find actions or activities that do not effect others, and mankind in general.
For example, a person may freely choose to be a drunk – but that decision will no doubt effect his family, siblings and friends, and result in medical costs to society. The same can be said for so-called sexual freedom, or the right of a woman to choose to have an abortion. The vast majority of man’s actions, thoughts and beliefs have an effect on others and/or society and/or posterity.
Most moral laws – as conveniently summarized in the 10 Commandments and in Sacred Scripture – were provided by Divine revelation and inspiration and contain the wisdom of the ages.
Mankind, the courts, and even some religious leaders are being misled by the secularist’s PLP Principle. The moral, cultural, and religious decline of America since the 1960s and 70s – as a result of the secularist PLP Principle – is becoming increasingly clear to sociologists , psychologists, Theologians and alert religious leaders. Clearly, Americans of every faith must reject the secularist philosophy – the PLP Principle – and returned to the Divinely inspired moral code, and wisdom of centuries past.
