Morality From God

Description

Morality is all about how to love effectively.

Why would God burden us with a morality that doesn’t seem to fit us and that so rudely intrudes on our wants and urges? The short answer is relationships. Morality keeps us fit for relationships and guides us in interpersonal conduct. The absolutes of right and wrong provide a template to guide you in loving your neighbor and relating to God. Morality is all about how to love effectively.

Why is it right to stop and help stranded motorists but wrong to veer over and run them down? The moral code dictates that it is right to stop, because that code came from God and reflects His nature. His nature is love, and it is right to render help because such an act is the loving thing to do. The loving helpfulness that morality encourages is healthy for society. The objective standard is the ancient but timeless Golden Rule: “Do for others as you would like them to do for you.”
