In the beginning I just tried to do the opposite of what my parents did - my father in particular. His theory was do unto others before they can do it unto you and he wasn't talking about it in a nice way. Then after that, as I gained wisdom well I have to agree with Erin and Ellie Josie!

Good answers, and I agree with each of them, but the "do unto others.." is my primary guide, if the action isn't already dictated by law and the 10 commandments.

early on it was my upbringing.... once i found Christ it became more of a WWJD (and how will I feel when I have to answer for that) which was learned from my bible teaching and reading early in life -- and continues to this day. Much of what I learned from my upbringing is what I didn't like... so, as I was able, I changed it -- do unto others, ya know!

Slow and steady wins the race!

Most of my views come from how I was brought up, and things I've observed over the years.

Wow! That deserves an awful lot of thought! Depending on the circumstances, outcome, etc.

What is the basis of your standard of right and wrong?
