    but the point is that while people can be motivated by the love of money and power on some level they know that is "evil" or "sinful."

    But even a genuinely good person with no selfishness within him whatsoever, who cares not a bit for power or money, can still be compelled to commit an absolutely unspeakable act if he believes that god requires it.

    There is not one morality lesson in the Bible that a modern rational society could not come up with on their own.  Yet the Bible has held civilization back when it comes to equality, slavery, and sexual violence.
