WHY versus WHY NOT?

Why did God place us in a world full of pleasures if we aren t meant to pursue them all?

In an imaginative dialogue, Oscar Wilde asks Jesus Christ to respond to this question about critical lifestyle choices. Their talk vividly illustrates the arguments for both sensual pleasure-seeking and moral moderation.
Playwright, dramatist, poet, critic Wilde openly defied the mores of Victorian society. His literary repartee fueled an if it feels good, do it humanistic philosophy that is still prevalent in the world today.
