      It is God’s Word—not man’s humanistic philosophies—that is “living and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword” (Hebrews ) and that is “truth” (John ). As God’s church, let’s uncompromisingly proclaim the Word and the gospel “that is the power of God . The basic point with all these examples is that it sounds very simple to say that morality is dependent on religion as "what is moral is based on the will and commands of God", but in practice it is actually extremely complex and uncertain whether we can know or work out reliably what the will of God .

      Book II, ch. 5. 12) “We might think that God wanted simply obedience to a set of rules: whereas He really wants people of a particular sort.” Book III, ch. 2. 13) “People often think of Christian morality as a kind of bargain in which God says, ‘If you keep a lot of rules I’ll reward you, and if you don’t I’ll do the other thing.’.   Without a God, the basic belief system of Western Europe was in jeopardy, as he put it in Twilight of the Idols: “When one gives up the Christian faith, one pulls the right to Christian morality.

    Then God spoke all these words, saying, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before Me. read more. “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. The Death of Morality Morality is a Culturally Conditioned Response Jesse Prinz argues that the source of our moral inclinations is merely cultural.. Suppose you have a moral disagreement with someone, for example, a disagreement about whether it is okay to live in a society where the amount of money you are born with is the primary determinant of how wealthy you will end up.

Many believe their morality comes from their religion. But evidence suggests that people’s opinion of what God thinks is actually what they believe is right and wrong, not the other way around.

Nietzsche elaborated these ideas in his book On the Genealogy of Morality, in which he also introduced the key concept of ressentiment as the basis for the slave morality. Nietzsche's primarily negative assessment of the ethical and moralistic teachings of Christianity followed from his earlier considerations of the questions of God and.

The book Thinking About God and Morality: Foundation Edition can give more knowledge and information about everything you want. Why must we leave a very important thing like a book Thinking About God and Morality: Foundation Edition.

Several of you have a different opinion about guide. But one aim this book can give many info for us. Walter Sinnot-Armstrong argues in this book that the basis of morality can be found without god, as the subtitle states. In addition to this he argues for why morality based on god, in particular the Christian god, can not form a basis for morality.

His basis for morality without god involves the concept of s:   A surprisingly fascinating book explains why. If Donald Trump gets a little bored on his flight home from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, he can always page through a book.

exists to help you make sense of the big questions about life. The books subtitle is "How embodiment and culture shape the way we think about truth, morality, and God." Really any summary I do about this book will be a disservice.

I'll give it a shot but understand that Dr. Sanders book is much better than my attempts to sum it s: 8. quotes from Christopher Hitchens: 'Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god.

Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.', 'That which can be asserted without evidence, can be.

For the Christian, this means applying the Bible and other resources of the Christian faith to help decide and do what is ethical or moral at work. (In this article, “ethics” and “morality” are used interchangeably.) Three general approaches to ethics have achieved widespread use both in Christian moral thinking and in the world at large.

What makes the book especially interesting is that we in the West underwent a sexual revolution in the late ’s, 70’s, and 80’s and are now in a position to test the conclusions he arrived at more than 40 years earlier. For years, it has been my thinking that God’s moral laws are not simply a bunch of arbitrary rules given to.

the word of God God never spoke. The book of Genesis depicts God as creating or through speech (Genesis ); a God that does not speak is a God that does not create.

Thus, the man’s declaration is that either his son is the word of God, or, for all practical purposes, the universe is a godless one. But in addition to any pragmatic advantage, we have a moral obligation to be logical. Thinking rightly is not optional for the Christian. It is something God requires of us.

Logic is the Way God Thinks. To think logically is to think – in a sense – like God thinks. And, by definition, to be logical is to reason correctly. There you have it. Who is God. He is the nonphysical, intelligent, moral first cause, who has given us intrinsic worth and who we can know by personal experience.

The verification of what Jesus taught and described and did make belief in Him a very rationally tenable and an existentially fulfilling reality. quotes from Richard Dawkins: 'We are all atheists about most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in.

Some of us just go one god further.', 'The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist.

As for morality coming from the Bible, though I used to believe such ridiculous nonsense many years ago, I have clearly seen that the God of the Bible, especially as described in the Old Testament, is a horribly brutal monster who has no moral inhibitions about ordering a host of evils against those who are not his favourites.

God’s moral nature is what Plato called the “Good.” He is the locus and source of moral value. He is by nature loving, generous, just, faithful, kind, and so forth. Moreover, God’s moral nature is expressed in relation to us in the form of divine commands which constitute our moral duties or obligations.

C.S. Lewis, the Moral Argument for God, and the Gospel. In the conclusion of his famous Critique of Practical Reason, Kant famously said, “two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and reverence the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.”Years later, C.S.

Lewis picks up this Kantian insight and formulates an argument for God based on the reality of a. According to the Moral Argument, there is a universal human “moral conscience” which suggests basic human similarities.

Everyone experiences an internal sense of moral obligation to do the right thing; Lewis asserts that the existence of a universal “moral conscience,” consistent across time and cultures, can only be explained by the existence of a god who created us. 1 John ESV / helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful.

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in .The moral of the story thus far is that even the best of the reasons routinely given for thinking that we do not need to appeal to God to ground morality do not succeed.

If there is a moral law, there must be a moral. In fact, if there are any good reasons (in this article or beyond it) for believing in an objective moral standard, then I think God’s existence becomes the best possible explanation for morality since such a standard at the least requires a transcendent, good, and personal source – which sounds a lot like the God of Christian theism.
