Last night while Jeremy waited with me for the number 7 bus to arrive, we had quite an involved discussion about the nature of morality. My moral view, as I’ve explained several times here, is one of action, transgression, and forgiveness. A dynamic rather than a set of principals. It is very difficult to explain this to people, because our society is based on liberalism, which takes clean hands morality for granted (an ethical system based on principals which, if obeyed completely, would make one’s hands entirely clean from moral transgressions. Jeremy, in fact, explained to me why any ethics which allows you to be good is a waste of time and missing the entire point, and used Biblical examples to illustrate the point. Apparently C.S. Lewis is pretty up on this. Maybe I ought to have spent more time studying theology.
