My World View 5

What is the Basis of Morality and Ethics?
God is the basis for morality and ethics, and the ultimate judge of humanity. To understand right from wrong, we must look no further than the Bible, which is God’s revelation to us. There are several reasons that I believe God determines right from wrong. Among these, the Bible is by far the most important. Psalm 19:7 says, “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making the wise simple”. God’s law has been clearly revealed to us throughout the Bible. Among the most straight-forward, and well known revelations are the Ten Commandments, which lay out a grid of basic rules, filled in richly throughout the rest of the Bible. The Bible teaches that Jesus was the only man ever to live a perfect life. Christians are then called to follow Christ’s example. Sin, defined, is anything apart from the perfection of God. Of course, no one, other than Jesus, has achieved perfection, which leads us to the cause of evil, and suffering.
