If we are to believe the articles and interviews published by media outlets in our nation today, then we would have to resolve that morality is no longer absolute truth. Rather, it is fluid and changes with the determination of the so-called majority. Contrary to this increasingly popular and heretical axiom, morality is not a subjective ideology, but a code of conduct which is as changeless as God’s own character.
Seasons come and go, skies change from overcast to clear and temperatures rise and fall, but God’s moral law does not vacillate one inch. Governments can be organized, tyrants can dictate and anarchy can prevail, but neither can alter the timeless treasure of morality. Indeed, people fall short of it’s expectations, but it does not diminish the luster emanating forth from it’s holy rays! Morality is not morality because man chooses to acknowledge its existence or not. The truth is that morality is because God is!
(Psalms 119:142) “Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.” (KJV)
In an age when there is an ever increasing attempt to emancipate, extricate and eradicate the fetters of moral restraint, one must resolve to look to God’s Word for strength! While individuals may seem to distance themselves from their God-given conscience and realign to an artificially re-calibrated moral compass, they, in effect, authenticate Biblical morality by their depraved and darkened moral philosophy.
The old saying, “Actions speak louder than words” rings true here. A person’s moral compass directly affects his/her actions. Outside of salvation in Jesus Christ, every person’s morality has some depravity issues. When a person becomes a child of God, they have the indwelling Holy Spirit to guide them in the daily walk. Thus, they are more in tune with Biblical morality than an unbeliever. As new creatures in Christ, a believer’s actions should demonstrate the changeless moral values as taught in the Holy Scriptures.
The bottom line is that each person must seek to shelter themselves under the pavilion of God’s moral law. It cannot be improved upon, nor can it be effectively replaced with any man-made dogma. Willfully yielding to it’s authority does not bring salvation, but it does provide a tremendous opportunity for God’s Spirit to bring about the conviction of sin and urgency for repentance!
