Do you define what is "right" by what society deems ok, by what suits you, or by a higher cause?

Do you define it by whats "best" and not just whats best for you?

And do you find evil acceptable if the perpetrator didnt know what they did was wrong?

    Dec 7 2012: Good=Right. Evil=Wrong. Societies are human constructs. Humans are mostly vain in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts are darkened, so they should be the last source of defining right and wrong. The Rulemaker I follow is no human. I define right and wrong by what His Word says is right and wrong. Regarding your second question, anyone can make a mistake. Unintentional acts cannot rightly be called evil because there was no intent to do wrong.
