PERSONAL COMMITMENT AND THE WORD OF GOD
Ron Dunn, “Surviving Friendly Fire” — A person of integrity believes in virtues rather than values. It was in the 1880’s that the atheistic philosopher Nietzsche, began to speak of ‘values’-In his thinking, there is no good and evil. No virtue and vices. There exist only values. Values assume that all moral ideas are subjective and relative, mere customs and conventions.
In the book The De-Moralization of Society the author says: “Values, as we now understand that word, do not have to be virtues: they can be beliefs, opinions, attitudes, feelings, habits, conventions, preferences…whatever any individual, group, or society happens to value, at any time, for any reason.”
