April 7, 2015 – Is Morality Missing?

“God grant that men of principle would be our principal men.” Thomas Jefferson

     All of life is moral,” says Albert Mohler, “there is no dimension of life that does not involve moral principles and moral consequences.”  It is true: we are moral beings that live by moral codes, and suffer from moral repercussions.  Even the immoral and the amoral live under the weighty system of morality.  Those who refuse to acknowledge moral principles are subject to natural law regardless of their acceptance of it. Someone’s denial of gravity is made possible by the very gravity they deny.  In short, morality is imbedded in a person’s DNA, whether they admit it or not.

So the real issue is not the existence of morality, it is the engagement, or perhaps, the embrace of morality.  Truth to you, the relativist says, may not necessarily be truth to me.  This misconstrued, misdirected, and delusional worldview has changed the moral landscape of our times. The closer we get to the coming of Christ, the faster the religious community marches to the mantra of moral-less men.  Such a path may lead to visually-stunning, intellectually-thrilling, and physically-imposing ministries, but will it take us to God?  We need truth.  Not just from men who have learned it, but from men who live it…in every dimension of life.
