What determines my opinion of a person?
What determines my opinion of a person? I think that is an easy question for me to answer. It is determined almost completely by my assessment of his honesty, integrity and morality. I don’t look at how much money he has, how much education he has, what kind of job he has, how important he is, how much ability of various kinds he may have, how nice a disposition he may have. These things simply don’t make a good man. I am interested in how good he is. A person can be a billionaire, have all kinds of degrees, be in a very high position, have all kinds of talent and ability, have a very nice disposition, and still be a bad person. He might be a person who has made great contributions to science — and I will give him credit for the things he has done — but that won’t determine my opinion of him. I want to know if he is a good person in the moral sense or not. Where does my particular outlook come from? I believe it comes from the Bible, from Christianity. I want to know if a person is an upright, honest, good person. That is the Biblical outlook. In the Bible uprightness, morality, goodness is everything. That is what matters, that is what is really important. It is on that basis that we will be judged on that great Day of Judgment.
