“Never let your sense of morals…” Isaac Asimov

Morals are guidelines on how to act rightly or appropriately, and they are not exclusive to religion. Every person is taught morality by those around them, although perhaps not explicitly. As a result, a non-religious person may also be prevented from doing the wrong thing because of their morals.

When people do the wrong thing ‘because of their morals’, it probably means one of several things: (1) they are more worried about them putting up the appearance of being moral rather than actually being moral; (2) they do not fully understanding the morals they have been taught, and how to apply those morals in certain situations; or (3) they may be too afraid to perform those moral actions due to circumstances outside their control.

To reiterate, this is not exclusive to religious people. All people have morals and may fail to enact them. I would argue that a belief in God and reason go hand-in-hand when it comes to morality. If you just believe in God you will no doubt fail to see the shades of grey; but if you just use reason you will break under difficult circumstance and give yourself “rational” justifications for your failings; belief and reason together will allow you to see the shades of grey, but give you the courage to do what’s right even when it’s at your own expense.
