Protestants derive their morality from the bible. Yet Protestant denominations change their minds about what is moral. In the 1930’s, after centuries of calling contraception wrong, they all changed and said contraception was morally neutral. On abortion some find it moral, some not, and with all gradations in between. On Homosexuality, divorce…their stands seems mushy to me. Am I misreading this?
Of course there are Catholics who disagree with what is taught. The difference is that they are bound to agree on, say, abortion, even if they don’t want to.
Many of the eastern religions also cannot agree on any clear morality–some would even argue that the concept of morality is wrong. In Islam the belief is that God is above even reason (unlike the Christian God) and therefore black could be white, and God could make anything morally good if He wanted to.
So do only the Orthodox and the Catholics take eternal, unchanging views on morality?
