Human beings’ innate sense of right and wrong indicates that morality is a universal natural law. Common moral virtues have been valued across history and across different cultures. Christianity has helped humans evolve because it encourages them to live more virtuous lives in accordance with the life of Jesus Christ. Christians strive to emulate Christ. They choose to reject selfish and carnal desires in life and instead pursue the true joy and fulfillment of a virtuous life and the hope of eternal salvation in Heaven.
