For more information, see the Wikipedia article:

Morality refers to the concept of human ethics which pertains to matters of good and evil — also referred to as "right or wrong", used within three contexts: individual conscience; systems of principles and judgments — sometimes called moral values — shared within a cultural, religious, secular, Humanist, or philosophical community; and codes of behavior or conduct.

Theistic morality is based on the assumption that there is a god who has absolute understanding of right and wrong, and orders people to obey rules as a condition for goodness.

Secular morality is a complex subject and is discussed in a separate article.
