Morality
Have you met someone that resembles you in every
aspect? Talks, walks and thinks as you? You'll never.
You're an original masterpiece in creation. You're
unique. Here is how Buddha expresses individual
uniqueness. "I am not the first Buddha who came
upon Earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time,
another Buddha will arise in the world - a Holy One, a
supremely enlightened One, endowed with wisdom in
conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an
incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and
mortals."

goodness or evilness of
our acts.
3 distinct stages of
conscience
1. Instinctive– an act is judged good if it
is rewarded and evil if it is punished.
2. Ethical – one begins to understand
that particular acts uphold universal
values.
3. Christian – to have moral judgment
reflect our deep, personal and mature
faith in Jesus.

Peter Parker
 The
teenager, Peter Parker,
the alter ego of the popular
comic superhero, Spider
man, became a true hero by
understanding and taking to
heart the wise words of his
Uncle Ben, “ With great
power comes great
responsibility.’’
 He,
however learned the meaning
of these words the hard way. After
gaining phenomenal powers, the
young Peter Parker used his
talents to make easy money and
simply enjoy his newfound
abilities.
 On
one occasion, he witnessed a
crime but simply let the criminal
go free. When his Uncle Ben died
in the hands of the same criminal,
Peter realized the meaning of his
Uncle’s words and committed
himself to using his powers for the
good of others.
Galatians 5: 1
For freedom, Christ set
us free: so stand firm
and do not submit
against the yoke of
slavery.
