Where did I get my studies of Right and Reason - Don Wesley 1933

We can only build using Geometric Axioms. The only Axiom we can use when building a story about God, is to accept... He does exist. To many people say He doesn't exist... but they can't prove it.

To know and understand who and how our fathers in this world behave, is a life time effort.
Just imagine how hard is to learn who God [our Father] is?
We each have our own freedom to talk to God and learn. Jesus gave us only 10 simple commandments!  ?

Hi everyone and welcome to my personal blog. My Name is Don. You can learn more about my for God; just travel to here

Hello Bernard

I prepared this for my blog, in response to your question “did I get my morals from the Bible?”
I am glad that I took more time to give you, a reasoned reply.
I was talking-out my prayers to [God] in the crib at the age of 4 or 5. No bible was involved.

My parents, and nurse-keepers certainly revealed rights and wrongs and more importantly, their "unique awareness" of me. They all, displayed  kind attitudes.
Did I get an awareness of the kindness, of Jesus early. Yes I attended the popular Sunday School-lessons in English Protestant Churches. I was told a few stories, about his birth, and was part of the Choir and I was made aware of beauty of church atmosphere, and the huge Organ, and the man who played it with both hands and both feet. I became aware of the structured order and ceremonies.Then we travelled and visited other churches with different ceremonies. This included Synagogues and the Catholic Church and then most often no church at all. I would say the last church was at 7 years of age.
At this age I was given a Bible; leather bound with thin strong pages edged with Gold. Just carrying that Book seemed to make me special. I still have that book.
For the next 10 years the habit of going to church stopped. I not sure why, but suppose it had to do with my Mom and Dad being separated. As I look back, that was traumatic and I became angry with my mother!
I did get my education in Montreal, in a School system patterned after the most excellent system in Scotland. That is where the notion of morality comes in. Reading was easy and natural, but the question after a story[any story] was “What is the moral of the story?” That question really puzzled me!
I never answered because I didn’t have an answer and chose not to guess. It never ever occurred to me, that a similar story was in the Bible, until I was in High School where we studied literature and Movie-Appreciation. 
It is also where we had the best science labs and libraries. We had very strict teachers and deception and lying was unthinkable. We were taught to research and study and reason and write explanatory essays.
We also learned historical-geography, and French and Latin and Mathematics,and Biology and Chemistry and Physics and Music.

So where did the principles of right and wrong flow-in over time?

And was it the Bible?
A great work of evidence done by excellent scholars.
It was an example of what my school wanted us kids to be.
Not great Books but excellent scholars

Well it wasn’t the Bible, Bernard.

Years later as an Adult, I read the reasoning of C. S. Lewis and the reasoning of Freud and reasoning of the Jesuit’s. I looked at the evidence in the bible for who was the best teacher.
There were no dilemma’s to solve. I also looked at the success of Christianity in supporting Science. The United Church in Canada supports Universities!

There is one layer more to my argument and that is; it is you who have to decide.

Like a court system where there is a Prosecutor and a Defense Lawyer who both tell you their story of the evidence, there is confusion and likelihood of attack that create psychic injures[Abuse]

Juries are chosen because they are the smartest among your culture. Trust them, they take an oath before God.

You can study for a life time all the scholarly work done over the centuries,
or you may never ask yourself to address to this topic before us today:
"The Source of Morality"
