Do You Know What Good Is?

People tell us to do good, or to be good. (Verbatim.)

They signal their virtue by telling us they know it’s good to do good. But some of those people won’t define what good is.

Usually, they presume that good is what aligns with what they feel good is. This conception of good is informed by many things, mostly what their peer community seems to feel. But no consensus of human beings will correctly tell you what good is.

One example.

People who tell you to do good— in just such a reductive way —are often people who refuse to acknowledge that terminating the lives of unborn human beings is not good.

So don’t t take moral direction from them. Don’t allow yourself to be judged by them. Don’t be on the defensive with people who think killing children could ever be good.
