Ethics

Does the end justify the means?
What good end can come from bad means?
How can we know a good end?
Is it right to kill one man to save another?

Can a bad end be justified by good means?
What if we avoid evil
What if we devote our lives to good
What if we try our hardest and fail?

Life is filled with choices
Do we follow rules?
What if the rules stand against each other?
Which principle becomes the most important?

Life seems difficult to balance
It is written: “Love your neighbor as yourself”
How are we supposed to love ourselves?
With so many neighbors, how do we show love?

Even the simplest things become complex in real life
But this rests upon my heart as I go and study
