Hardly Surprising

Judeo-Christian Ethics (The Golden Rule)

Essentially this ethical school of thought can be summed up in ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’. Only do something to someone which you would like to have done to you in return. This is the ethical principal which is least prone to criticism.

    It occurs to me that the Golden Rule can usually be summed up in one of two ways.

    1) Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    2) Love others as you love yourself.

    Perhaps it’s just pure semantics, but I generally prefer the latter. I think it expresses a less selfish viewpoint.

    It’s largely semantics, but I agree with you. Heck, even though Jesus offered up of the oft-paraphrased statements, he did qualify the second as the second commandment under the law of God.

    The first: Love God with all heart, might, mind and strength. In other words, more than self.

    He’s right when he says that upon these two hang the rest of moral or ethical rules God set (in his words “all the law and the prophets”)… if one truly loves another, certain conduct naturally follows.
