Let's Review! 

Whenever we are faced with a decision, we must ask ourselves three questions:

  1. Is the act that I am considering doing morally good or morally evil?
  2. What are my intentions for doing this act?
  3. What are the circumstances surrounding the action?

Together all three questions help determine the moral quality of our actions by examining what we are doing, why we are doing it, and the circumstances surrounding the act.
