A common trait is to philosophize away morality – and, in the process, we can become so confused that we lose sight of what is right and what is wrong. A perfect example of this is in the approach of Ammoron in condemning Moroni for his brother’s death. When we read this, we instinctively know and understand that what Teancum did was correct and appropriate. And, yet, demonstrating that logically becomes more problematic. Logic and reason do, at times, fail to come up with the correct answer for a given moral issue.
As a result, we should not be overly concerned if we cannot logically explain right and wrong at all times. Sometimes, we know what is right even if we cannot demonstrate that knowledge.
