Our culture has taken the virtue of gratitude and joy and turned it into a vice of envy and hatred. It is telling people that it is ok to speak badly about others accomplishments,rather than be proud of their hard work. Our culture is also, taking the vice of lust and saying how chastity is not a smart choice. It is saying that it is ok to have sex with anyone rather than waiting for that one special person you will marry.

VIRTUE or VICE

Post  pmart124@aol.com on Mon Oct 06, 2008 4:55 pm

In my own opinion,i think our culture has taken almost all of the virtues and pretty much said....yea these are pretty cool. For example, in some families there are kids who are very spoiled and are used to getting everything little thing they want or every ask for. yet in other parts of the world there are people who can't even afford food,or water. when you think about it, everyone deserves to have the very basics or is entitled to them,just for being a human being. i believe i read that in the bible somewhere but can not remember where....anyway not important right now. other HARD issues such as sex before marriage and abortion. Our culture is too used to have these at their fingertips. In my opinion, which doesnt seem to matter too much because im wrong on moral issues...go figure, i think if you want to have sex or you choose to have sex before you are married then GO ahead. NO one is gonna follow you your hole life and hold your hand and say, no dont do that or yes do that, the only thing standing in between you and YOUR OWN choices are youself. Anyway since my opinion doesnt matter because im always wrong and will never be right on moral issues then i will wrap it up saying that. thank you and have a GOD filled day. your brother in christ, PROPHET PAT, MARTINEZ

Vice and Virtue

Post  wgmh128 on Mon Oct 06, 2008 4:56 pm

Society has managed to convince us that the vice of lust is a virtue, and that its okay to have premarital sex and people basing their entire marriage on this vice. The virtue that is often made into a vice is humility, many people could care less about belitting yourself to help another person. Instead their pride blinds them and allows them not to care about anyone but themselves.

In our world today the virtue of chastity means nothing to our culture. We dont value the meaning of it, and we dont fully understand that we are suppost to be chaste until marriage. We have turned lust into something more important than love. When you should be waiting for marriage and the one you really love.

one virtue made into a vice is chastity.People don't save sex for marriage anymore and they have sex with multiple partners and they pay for it in the long run by getting STDs from it. affraid one vice mad into virtue is the sin of pride. so many people are so cocky and think they can do anything.

One example of a vice becoming a virtue is premartual sex. This has become a goal and if achived one would get god-like status. One example of a virtue becoming a vice is chastity. If followed most people believe this kinda person would be weird and would be alienated.

Our culture has taken the vice of premarital sex and turned it into a virtue by turning lust into something more important than love. They make it seem ok or the right thing to do when you should save it for someone you love and want to marry.

Our culture has taken the virtue of chastity and turned it into a vice through pornography and by turning women into objects used for sex instead of people. Our culture turned the vice of lust into something that is acceptable by our culture and considered okay.

Smoking for some people can be considered as a vice. Smoking is bad for your health, causes lung cancer, and is bad for the people around you. Studies show that secondhand smoke is very dangerous to non smokers. The Warning on cigarette packs state the health risks. Our society has converted this vice to a virtue especially, for non smokers. State laws now prohibit smoking in restaruants, theaters, clubs, and many other public places.

Patience is a virtue. Our society has become less and less patient when it comes to marriage in the eyes of the church. Couples choose to live together rather then getting married which leads to premaritual sex.

today in culture we have turned the virtue of chastity into a vice because it is okay to have premarital sex. It has taken the vice of gluttony into a virtue because it is okay to want pricey objects and to put them things before God.

For example the killing rate in philly, noq that people are noticing how bad it is, radio stations are having gun collections to stop the violence.
Also premarital sex, everyone is taking this for granted and goin for how they fell n want it rather than what is right, for saving this action for someone they love and are going to spend the rest of their life with.

The virtue of premartial sex has been turned into a vice through telivision. Most of the shows I watch have most of the teenage characters having sex. The vice of smoking has been turned into a virtue by all of the new non- smoking laws. Np P.2

Today's culture makes abortion seem like a good thing even though it is murder. People think that abortion will make life better for people. Also many people in today's culture think that chasity and modesty are unimportant and they ignore them.

Our culture has turned sex into being a okay thing to do which ruins our chasity and modesty. Also many people do not take the sin envy serious because they do not appreciate what they already have and just keep wanting more.

a virtue our community has turned into a vice is chastity. we are having premarital sex and it is just diminishing what sex is really ment to be seen as, and is disgracing God at the same time

an example of our culture turning a vice into a virtue is when they show it's ok to be sloth and have abortions as an easy way out of things. For a virtue into a vice, our culture shows that it's not ok to be chaste and a virgin and that people should have sex at an early age and before marraige.

Virtues and Vices

Post  Lcos22` on Mon Oct 06, 2008 6:16 pm

One vice that has been turned into a virtue is pride. Everyone takes pride in thier work, but some people take it too far. Such as when a murder kills someone just for the fun of it. He takes pride in his work, but we all know it is a mortal sin to kill. One virtue that has been turned into a vice is chastity. At one point in time, people didn't take part in premarital sex. Now, people go around being immodest, and take part in sexual activities when they should be saving themselves for marriage like God's will.

I would say that our culture has taken the vice of Greed and gave it the okay. It seems that the only way to live happy, is to have money. And vice versa. Our culture has taken charity and made it out to be that its okay to have much money and hoard it for yourself instead of helping overs with you wealth.

Our culture has taken the virtue of gratitude and joy and turned into a vice by envying your family and friends and neighbors and God.
Our culture has also brought us up to think that money is everything. We must make alot and buy new things that do not bring us eternal joy.
