|Whatever happened to 'whatever's right'?|
Someone has said: "The only thing that never changes is the fact that everything changes." That statement is not absolutely true, but it gives us a good basis to think about our changing world. While the most obvious areas of change are technology, communication, etc., probably the most serious area of change is in the matter of morals.
While there are many segments of morality that are changing to a dangerous degree ... homosexuality, pornography, and the highest divorce rate in our history ... There is a more "down home" expression we may want to consider, and that is, "Whatever's right."
There was a time when, faced with serious problems, those involved would talk it over. If no decision could be reached someone would always say, "Well, whatever's right." Have you heard that lately? Probably not much, if at all. Why? Because so many people have become unconcerned about what is right or what is wrong. Why? Because our convictions are changing. Today, the all-too common response to "What will we do?" is "Whatever is politically correct" or "Whatever everybody else is doing." or "Whatever will get me the most" ... whether that is money, power or popularity. Then, perhaps the most up-to-date would be, "Whatever is cool."
