Hello!!! this is my first post here
I have questions if its moral to do anything
A: If everything can be logically related, including causes, or your actions, can eveyrthiing be related and not related to a sin at the same time, and not related, and related?
B: This question is a little bit about movment, if movement involves moving for oneself or selfish chemichal/nuerological feedback loops, is it selfish? If the idea of nurological egoism (eveyrthing is for the self), minding the nuroscience isent in on love, and I do think love is supernatural, since God is love, (and I tend to think its unselfish) is everything we do selfish, and a sin?
C: If we are suppose to not care for material things, not want or greed for material things, turn the other cheek to suffering, basically not be of the world, and actions are material things, then what can be considered evil to our neigbors (and by that I mean an evil that may happen to them)? Matthew 5:38 - 48, James 4 and possibly another passege (I will post here if remember/find/it isent James 4, possibly Timothy comes to mind) (NOTE: I know this may seem cruel, but I obviously care if harm comes to my neigbor, or something bad happens to them, or about good things I can do for my neighbor, I just am questiong purly philosophically or with sort of cold reasoning trying not to think of that too much, because I feel I have questions and want to do things morally properly because of love of neighbors, some more clarification below, and in B, not being of the world or the body not being fallen and or giveing away eveyrthing, loving enimes [which I agree with, as with all this] and stuff is I guess where I am slightly confused)
D: How does one act out of love, possibly considering B, and C? I ask this/these questions because I was living in a way that I thought addressed this, but in that way one thing I thought was for example, a relationship to someone closer to you was more important than another one, if an absolute choice has to be made, it is moral to choose the person who is more important in your life because the relationship or the love of them with them is/may be more imporant than the reletionship with the other person (though one could say, if the situation was possibly damaging to their relationships with others, or effects others, then you could take that into consideration as well), mostly considering small evil acts. Or an act that may be immoral, for example, paying a sales tax on a purchace that eventually may fund abortion or an execution or a bullet at war that kills someone, is an amount of harm that is negligable, or small (or perhapse not the proper channel, for example a vote may be the proper channel, but one still does moral evil in the course, is there always [potentially significant] a “proper channel?”), and takes such a long line of reasoning it is insinginificant, and doing what your doing, say for another person is more important. Or perhapse taking a frenchfry if its offered to you, though you may refuse politly at first, this would help build the relationship, but are you taking advantage of the person caring for you or wanting to be in a relationship with you, is it caring or loving to not take it or give it back, (or caring or loving to try to strengthen your relationship with them by taking it, though possibly doing a slight moral evil: selfishness) is this a selfish action for yourself, does it matter that its a small thing your taking for yourself (esepcially considering this could be self - sacrafice for the other person, and the idea of denotological reasonsing or disregard to consequences)? Another one is a lot of women (I dont meant sterotype too much but we are on a Catholic forum thank God that understands there is a difference between men and women, though I understand this isent doctrine), want you to affirm what they are saying when they are upset and want someone to talk to or listen. At times in order for this to be successful you may have to say “Yes.” It doesent really matter what it is too, but they want to get it out, or for you to listen. I have noticed it is at the end of this is when you may be able to give an opionion, or point out something that may be immoral. But during that intermendant time, if you say “yes” to something that is false or morally wrong (not nessisarly in the sense that you will do it), are you lying to them or particiapating in the action even if you plan to rebuke after? What if they take the advice and you dont have a chance to rebuke it afterwored, or you get inturupted? Is it still a moral evil if you say it? Or is it an act of love towards the person and is consoling them more important than the moral evil. Exchanging a few immoral sense for a few moral dollars? Or exchanging something possibly a little less important for something potentially more (that person, your relationship, etc. ). What if somone close to you asks you to do an immoral thing, even a small one (and I understand all sins are big), they dont think is immoral out of love for you? (James 4 and Im not sure but another passage possibly may be coming to mind again) Some of these things may seem to be moral evils or small ones, but they are still there. A quesiton I have is Matthew 5:38 - 48 it seems to me the person and the love of them is more important than the things you loose [or possibly the evil the enemy be possibly doing?]
E: What is considered contributing to an evil action? Matthew 5:38 - 48 Luke 17:14-15 (does he disobay Jesus command, then love Him, consider Jesus more imoratant, and live inside and return?) Does love, or God or people make an action good? Are all the things we consider to be a part of a certain type of evil action or a species of sin actually a part of it, when can we cosnider ourselves a part of that sin?
These are two seperate questions, A is not nessisairly impying B.
