"It is the eternal struggle between these two principles --
right and wrong -- throughout the world.
They are the two principles that have stood
face to face from the beginning of time..."
Abraham Lincoln
(1809-1865) 16th US President

They will always stand face to face until The Christ comes again and rules in rightousness. What a wonderful day that will be!

    Look, my friends are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Jainism, Atheist, Trotskyite, and Agnostic, and we all get along fine without the need to preach to each other – you are who you are without the trappings of so called morals based on your individual beliefs. A good person can be from all of the above as much as a bad person. If we are to survive as humans in this Universe we must begin to respect each and their beliefs. In all the writings of different religions there is one common denominator which run through their respective scriptures – in the final days you will not be judged on what you believe but what you did – its really very simple; the rest is cloak and daggers – perhaps more daggers than cloaks. As Benjamin Franklin wrote in a letter to his farther “ The scriptures assure me that at the last day we shall not be examined on what we thought but what we did."

    The age-old struggle -- it will never end in a thousand generations, so let's be easy on each other -- we are all damned fools (ask any religionist).

    When one compromises ones beliefs in order to "get along" one has no beliefs at all except those which are for sale. As long as there is a sun rising in the morning there will be people who are evil; Can you say Jeffrey Dalmer: How many of the children he murder and consumed just wanted to "get along."

    I think it would be more accurately said that a definition of “right” and “wrong” is the eternal struggle. What is the standard to be measured to or with? If “the laws of nature and of nature’s God” ((Declaration of Independence) – a specie of natural law) was / is the standard then, the Isaiah scripture at 5:20 (there are those “that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!) is an extremely accurate exposé of today’s right and wrong understanding(s). If right and wrong are filtered through a standard of theocratic socialism then, liberty, inalienable rights, individual sovereignty / human nobility and natural law would be wrong (including the principles thereof) and, the macabre’s death cult (sacrificing babies / life to gods of pleasure and life style) would be right (including the principles thereof). Succeeding the afore mentioned scripture (Isaiah 5:21 – “Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!”), it is a further illumination that separates natural law’s right and wrong from, carnal man’s theocratic right and wrong.
