  1. We were created as rational beings therefore, we can realize 4 ourselves what is moral and what is bot. God or any authority cannot dictate what is wrong since they can alter it according to their preference. They can make good seem right and if we allow them to influence our thinking, then the concept of right will be lost. Our being will be useless. We contain the intuition to differentiate what is moral or not.

  2. From http://dictionary.reference.com

    1. having or showing a dutiful spirit of reverence for God or an earnest wish to fulfill religious obligations.
    2. characterized by a hypocritical concern with virtue or religious devotion; sanctimonious.
    3. practiced or used in the name of real or pretended religious motives, or for some ostensibly good object; falsely earnest or sincere: a pious deception.
    4. of or pertaining to religious devotion; sacred rather than secular: pious literature.
    5. having or showing appropriate respect or regard for parents or others.

    who determines what moral and what is not. If it is god then there can never be morality without god. But if morality is based on ethics, then there can be.

    therefore, i would say “because pious persons believes that Gods love it”. Since we can’t prove/disapprove the existence of Gods,much less their moral disposition.

  3. The first statement “The pious is loved by the gods because it is pious”, implements that there isa an independent basis on morality of acts that even the gods recognize. The basis could be the human’s sense of good/evil and right/wrong or something that the authorities have agreed upon on like the church. But contrary to that, why would the gods listen or follow to someone who is much of a lower kind of being compared to them and what could be that independent basis of morality?

    The second statement “It is pious because it is loved by the gods” implements that gods have the absolute power of disctating what is right and what is wrong. It is like God as projection of man’s fears and desires. On the negative side, the gods can tell or command whatever they want and we should obey their orders because it is willed by the gods therefore it is the right thing to do. In Abraham’s dilemma, God ordered him to kill his firstborn as a sign of devotion to him. As a follower of the Lord, every order must be executed but as a loving father, it us very unethical for the son to be killed by the very hands of his own father for a reason that not justifiable. The order is categorized as holy because it is something willed by the gods. Could gods exercise such tyranny to its followers?

    In analyzing the dilemma, we could come up with opinions from the different time eras, on Socrates’ time and the present time which could be based on the Christian faith.

    In Socrates’ time, it is the people that pleases the gods and never the gods that please the people. In ancient mythology, Greek gods were most likely humans in way of thinking. They’re also vulnerable from thoughts of earthly desires. They demand sacrifices from men such as crops, animals or even life just to please them. In those times, the gods’ image were mostly fear, anger and total command among humans.

    As a Christian believer, God is the supreme being that is all knowing and the absolute good. He created us to be his followers and that’s what we should do. God as our loving father, he would not want us to be misled.
