Hello Everyone, and welcome again to the Wesley Foundation at MSU.
Coming off of Spring Break last week we’re ready to jump back into asking the tough questions in an entertaining manner.
We’re continuing to evaluate religious concepts as portrayed in popular media, so stick around to see what we’re up to today!
What you may have missed…
Last week we began our new theme by examining the moral and religious concepts contained in the sit-com “The Good Place”.
We started by asking ourselves the basic question, “What is morality, and where does spirituality play a role?” We evaluated different spiritual and moral systems and came to a few conclusions.
The key conclusion however is that any good system needs to properly and benevolently account for human failure. With flawed humanity, nothing is simple or straight forward in regards to morality, and no one can possibly be perfect. Therefore there needs to be adequate flexibility when considering human morality and spirituality.
This week we will be continuing on with our discussion of the moral and spiritual themes in “The Good Place”.
We will be looking at the four basic moral systems, virtue ethics, consequentialism, deontology, and nihilism, and ask what constitutes a good moral system.
Finally, we will look at concepts of the after life, and what would make for a fitting “Good Place” for human beings.
