Human Freedom and Moral Responsibility: Other Contributions

We are still on to Human Freedom and Moral Responsibility and our topic still remains the same: “can human freedom be separated from moral responsibility?” If you haven’t seen the response of our chief guest for this week’s programme, do so now Click here to view Mr. Ferguson Ukpebor’s Contribution

We cannot but thank everyone who contributed to this discussion within a short notice. We really appreciate.

In this session, two different questions were asked to some set of people and some provided answers for both while others were only able to provide that of the first question due to their tight schedule.

Question 1: “can human freedom be separated from moral responsibility?”

Question 2: We live in a world where everyone wants to be free; everyone is advocating for freedom. The child wants to be free and be able to take decisions and do things like it’s parents or like other elderly ones. Everyone wants to be free to take (steal) IPhone 7 and similar gadgets from a shop without paying. But no one is willing to accept the responsibility attached to such decisions when it is called for.
A child who does what it isn’t supposed to do, due to wrong decision, would hide under the shadows of I am not up to 18 in order to escape from jail terms.
A person who steals the IPhone 7, would blame it on the devil, why it was clear that he did it. Why are you blaming the devil when you were the one who stole the phone? why are you not willing to take up the responsibility?
People are making continuous and constant efforts to separate freedom from moral responsibility. What do you have to say about this escapade?

Mr. Muogbo Michael and KSInfo

Question 1:“can human freedom be separated from moral responsibility?”

Michael: Very much, they can be separated but I am not sure freedom and moral responsibility want to get rid of their relationship yet.

Question 2: What do you have to say about this escapade?

Michael: It’s all a trial, but they surely won’t succeed because even though they are separable freedom and moral responsibility are bound to know no separation. When issues of freedom comes up, responsibility will always be there to know how his dear friend is faring and verse versa.

KSInfo: Dear friend [lol]. Thanks so much for your comment and contribution, we really appreciate. KSInfo.

Michael: Thanks brother.

Mr. Alienyi Jeremiah and KSInfo

Question 1: “can human freedom be separated from moral responsibility?”

Jeremiah: The answer to the question depends on the context. We need to know what human freedom we are talking about. Is it freedom from a colonial master? Is it freedom from slavery? Is it freedom from prison or freedom from sin.

Taking it from the Kingdom perspective, however, human freedom can’t be separated from moral responsibility. When the children of Israel got their freedom, they were given the ten commandments. The purpose of the commandments was to keep them in check and ensure they abide by godly morals. After the freedom comes a responsibility to abide by God’s moral standard.

The greatest form of slavery is sin. And what is sin? Sin is a violation of God’s commandments. Being immoral is one of it.
John 8:34 says, Whoever commits sin is a slave to sin.

The main reason why God sent Jesus to die for us is to free us from the chains and slavery of sin.

1 John 3:8 says, “He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”

From the above passage, it’s clear that Jesus came to free us from the works of the devil. And the works of the devil is sin because he is the father of sin. So, if Jesus came to free us from sin, it’ll be very very wrong to suggest or think that being free can be separated from morality. The reason for our freedom is so we can be moral and holy through His grace.

Question 2: What do you have to say about this escapade?

Jeremiah: This is not just about not owning to one’s irresponsibility or lawlessness. It’s an attitude. A sinful state that only a genuine repentance can cure.

Miss Ogbonna Felicity and KSInfo

Question 1: “can human freedom be separated from moral responsibility?”

Felicity: It can’t…. Freedom gives room for everything and moral responsibility is like a burden, trying to do things right in all. In freedom, you get lost and moral responsibility hides.

KSInfo: Thanks so much for your comment and contribution, we really appreciate. KSInfo

Mr. Emmanuel Idachaba and KSInfo

Question 1: “can human freedom be separated from moral responsibility?”

Emmanuel: Freedom and responsibility are two terms which are in fact closely linked. One cannot exist without the other. If we place emphasis on freedom and neglect responsibility what we would have will no longer be freedom but anarchy. Because, the understanding of freedom separate from responsibility would be ” I can do what ever I deem fit”. We won’t want to attempt that moment.

Miss Priscilla Odunayo and KSInfo

Question 1: “can human freedom be separated from moral responsibility?”

Priscilla: Well, I guess freedom deals with the ability to do or say whatever you like. On the other hand, moral responsibility deals with keeping the values of the society. Moral responsibility is also a way of curbing human freedom to an extent. This is because if you grant humans total freedom without setting some kind of structures that makes them responsible for the outcome of their actions, then the society will be a chaotic one. Moral responsibility deals with values, norms and order and this checkmates human freedom. Hence, although you are free, there are certain actions which are not permitted by your society and this you need to watch out for.

Question 2: What do you have to say about this escapade?

Priscilla: Well I think everyone is accountable for his or her actions. You should be ready to take responsibility for your actions.
