Religious and Moral reasoning are two sides of the same coin, so close to each other yet separated by a fine line, dividing the two into completely different worlds. These two act as pillars to two completely different realms within our perception of society, the spiritual and physical sides of life.
Moral reasoning appeals to the side of the world we can comprehend, the physical world where logic and reason power the authority of individuals capable of interpreting the world for what it is. People see this type of reasoning as our way of explaining how the world works, our ability to study each natural layer of our home. People use this type of reasoning to evidently explain the laws of our world, and to show how humanity must obey these laws as we were subjected to them from the very beginning of time.
Religious reasoning seeks attention from people who believe that the universe is more than meets the eye, the people who believe that humanity began, not from science, but from the willpower of higher beings. It is natural for humanity to seek answers to the universe, and, with many of the world’s mysteries still left unsolved, it is very easy to say that what is truly right is in what we cannot see. To understand what is beyond our comprehension is something humanity has always desired, and the power of religious reasoning allows us to seek these answers in the realm of the human spirit.
Like I said earlier, Religious and Moral reasoning are two sides of the same coin. It is in this sense that neither can be stronger than the other. Moral reasoning seeks to explain the physical world but cannot give any explanation for the things we cannot comprehend, and religious reasoning seeks to explain the spiritual world, but cannot stand within the context of the laws of the physical world. Neither side can cross over the dividing line as neither side can overpower the other. It is in this conclusion that we must view them as separate entities altogether. The sciences humankind has come up with can explain to us how the world works, and the faiths we adhere to can explain the mysteries life has to offer.
Two sides of the same coin. Two worlds distinct, yet intertwined. That is the essence of religious and moral reasoning
