A patriot without religion in my estimation is as great a paradox as an honest Man without the fear of God. Is it possible that he whom no moral obligations bind, can have any real Good Will towards Men?— Abigail Adams. Born on this date in 1644
Interesting thought. The Bible talks about a seared conscience, as if we are at least born with one. So the answer should be yes, that it is possible. Evolutionists could even think of the social conscience as a survival mechanism for the species.The flip side is also interesting to ask. Is it possible that he whom moral obligations bind, can have no Good Will towards Men? That answer seems to be yes as well. Again, consider the seared conscience, and maybe ask how seared is it.
