Yes, people could do what is right “If”

They overcame self interest and serve one another
They oppose evil and support good
They believe in absolute truth

So how can we learn about absolute truth and what it is? I can answer this as a Christian: I believe in absolute truth by faith in GOD; I believe GOD and what I can learn about GOD and GOD’s standards from the Holy Scripture: The Holy Bible reveals GOD’s truth to me.

How can this be you may wonder?

As an ordinary human, in order to do this I must overcome my own self interests, tendency to do wrong, and oppose what evil influences I encounter in “The World” – even from within me. Philosophically the mind GOD gave me, struggles with many illusions and what appeals to my senses, discrepancies in reality and false doctrines; imperfection is the term best describes our milieu, reality and the expectations humans have.  So how are we to learn about what is “The Good”? From GOD’s word; because GOD loves us and has provided us with a way to know about “The GOOD” which is derived from the absolute truth GOD is the creator of. OK then, if we all tried to do a better job reaching for the seemingly lofty goals expressed within the Bible, think of what that could do for the character of life on Earth for more people – Christians and non-believers as well.

This coming Sunday, Palm Sunday, we remember Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem but in less than a week seemingly all the people will have abandoned Jesus when He is betrayed, abused and crucified. This is a sad testimony concerning the nature of people yet, if He had not suffered and died for the sins of all there wold not be any hope for humanity’s eternal salvation.
