Storyboard Text

  • So Darius, What aspect of C.S. Lweis' book Mere Chritianity do you like the most?
  • Interesting, would you care to explain?
  • Yes, First, I believe people would agree that there is an over arching sense of a way to be. This is understood as the Law of Morality. Yet, I believe this also gives people to day the most trouble because different belifes about the validity of there being a moral law they are subject to.
  • Well Jeff, I am really enjoying this book. I enjoy Lewis talk about the a Moral Law, but I believe people today would struggle with the concepts of what he talks about.
  • Why do you believe people would agree with that there we all have a sense for the law?
  • Well, C.S. Lewis believes, "human beings all over the earth have this curious idea that they ought to behave in a certain way."
  • I agree with this because of Lewis' illustration of an argument. To have an argument is to say there is right and wrong universal and either you or I am violating what is right by doing wrong. this establishes the belief that people understand there to be a sense of a way to be. 
  • ok, continue..
  • He states, "Whenever you find a man who says he doesn't believe in a real Right and Wrong, you will find the same man going back on this a moment later." A guy who thinks this could be treated in a bad way and although he may not say he has been wronged, he will feel within him that some injustice has occurred and thus his inner being contradicts his rationality. This proves hat people do understand that there is a moral law.
  • Lewis's futhers the presence of the Law of morality by looking at those who do not belie in true Right or Wrong. 
  • Ok, I get it. So why do you believe people would struggle with this?
  • Well, it starts with understanding  the arguments against people being subject to an over arching moral law. One argument to this would be that morality is instinctual can be developed over time. There can not be a pre-existing moral law that we can be subject to. An aspect
  • Lewis’ begins to dismantle this belief by separating instincts from the moral law. He states, “feeling a desire to help is quite different from feeling that you ought to help whether you want to or not.” This support his main thesis about the difference between Moral law and instincts that states, “You might as well say that the sheet of music which tells you, at a given moment, to play one note on the piano and not another, is itself one of the notes on the keyboard. The Moral Law tells us the tune we have to play: our instincts are merely the keys.
  • Ok, I get it. So why do you believe people would struggle with this?
  • Another argument is that moral law is simply something that is put into us by education. I believe people cling to this because of the society we live in emphasizes formal education and at times can perceive moral uprightness akin to that of a well educated mind.
  • Lewis believes these people holdinga aspect of truth misunderstand the class to which the Moral law stands. Moral ideashave in affect differed over time and much with the help of formal education, morallaws seem to seek further progression. How Lewis differentiates the class Morallaw is on is by stating, “The moment you say that one set of moral ideas can bebetter than another, you are , in fact, measuring both by a standard, sayingone of them conforms to that standard more nearly than the other.”
  • That makes sense. Wow, I have now been enlightened.
  • Overall I believe this argument offers aspects We belive and try to disbelieve
  • END
