7 out of 10 people agree: 'There are no absolute standards for morals and ethics.'

As Greg Laurie says...
With this kind of outlook so pervasive, it's easy to see why lying and deception are so much a part of our culture:

  • 65 percent of high school students say they have cheated on an exam in last 12 months;

  • 24 percent of college students say they would lie to get or keep a job;

  • 47 percent of adults would accept an auto body repairman's offer to include unrelated damages in an insurance claim.

    If there's no objective truth about our moral choices, then the basis for our decision to be truthful in any given circumstance will always depend on self-serving reasons.
  • It's not a matter of being perfect (I hope). I just want to fail less at this.
