Undoubtedly, the big stuff we can all get from the bible. Not stealing, not killing, not cheating.

But there were probably civilisations that pre date Christianity or Judaism that also had those rules. The bible does not have the monopoly on them.

They day to day stuff.... Surely that come from day to day experience. And it would have been the same in jesus' time too. Only the moral zeitgeist has move on a bit since then.

For example. I defy anyone to use the story of sodom and Gomorrah has a moral text today. Leaving aside the whole gay sex angle.

In the story, lot is proclaimed by god to be of superior moral stock. And yet does things that by today's standards are not moral.

Advocating the rape of his daughters for, instance, as long as it's a heterosexual coupling.

His daughters also get him drunk and have incestous sex with him afterward. Leviticus is just has down on incest as soddomy. Yet, god choose to turn a blind eye. Where is the moral line drawn there????
"if you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you." (Jesus Christ, gospel of thomas.)

Love is natural, Hate is taught....
