So many moral and ethical things are not painted gray; they are not in-between, somewhere in the middle, or maybe-maybe not… they are clearly defined and understood.

James, an apostle, called this “a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:8) The term double-minded is literally ‘a chronic doubter,’ wavering and uncertain. I say it’s just kicking the can down the road.
“A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.” Jesus
