Ethical behavior

The Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" is also known as the spiritual gift of rectitude or imitate God. It is the definition of the good and the ethical behavior, the Golden Rule is empathy, is to put ourselves in the place of the other. The best-known case of Righteousness is the parable of the Good Samaritan in the Gospel of Luke (Luke 10). But this parable goes beyond, explains the ethical behavior of people: we sin, that is to say we practice evil or we live righteously, that is to say we live the good. People are edifying or destructive, good or bad. There is no middle ground, white or black there is no gray. Life is like chess, you play with the whites or with the blacks. And this relates to the works, to which tend towards those who practice the sin? Towards the works of the flesh (Galatians 5) which are: idolatry, witchcraft, enemity, adultery, fornication, filth. And where tends those who live righteously? To the fruits of the spirit: joy, peace, patience, kindness, faith, meekness, temperance.En this consists the study of ethics, how we choose, how is our relationship with the neighbor and the divine.
