Throughout history and in most countries of the world, we will find that the codes of morality and ethics adopted by most societies, are derived in part or whole from the world’s religious traditions.

With the change of time and the rise of secularism, the tendency has been to gradually abandon these values and to adopt more “modern” social values reflecting the changes that societies are adopting.

But this could lead to a creeping relativism where morality or ethical behavior is solely judged by the perspective of the observer or within the context in which they are practiced, leading to the abandonment of moral idealism or the idea of transcendent/absolute morality.

So what is the spiritual perspective on this?
