MORAL LAWS

leave a comment »

        Many nations, both past and present have their laws, written and unwritten.
The laws of these peoples are in many places somewhat like the ten commandments and of some of the things we would read in the Old Testament, although they would be imperfect. We see this in Romans 2:14 and 15: “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these having not the law, are a law unto themselves: Which show the work of the law written on their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness—“. As God is good He would give to all men a conscience which would be basically good.
        An example of imperfect laws would be that most cultures put property ahead of people. Because the Bible taught that man was made in the image of God, a man could not be touched for stealing an animal. He must make it right but only with money or goods. Man was of more value than money, animals or property. Psalm 19 tells us that the law of God is perfect, unlike the laws of men.
       The western world was based entirely and only on the Judeo-Christian ethic, which in turn was based on the Bible. In fact, in the dictionary of 1812 by Webster the Bible is often used as a reference point or proof for a word or phrase. It is obvious that even the non-Christians believed the Bible to be absolutely true. The young were brought up accordingly. Their entire upbringing was based on the Judeo-Christian ethic.
       My point is that all young people were taught the difference between right and wrong; but we today would not accept the laws of ancient Rome or Greece or the modern laws of Japan or of the pantheists. All that the western world has knowledge of is the laws we have, based on Biblical do’s and don’ts. Therefore when the ten commandments were put out of our schools we left an entire generation growing up with no moral instruction and no conscience.  That was just the beginning. Now more and more any reference to Christianity is being erased.
       The entire doctrine of salvation is also a subject of which only the Bible has the answer. All other religions teach that if one does his best, hopefully all will end up alright. This is true of even most Christian religions. The Bible is very clear on this: “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight”=Romans 3:20.
       Galatians chapter 4:1-10 spells out clearly the difference between law keeping and salvation. “Even so we (the Jewish law keepers) were under bondage”=verse 3.
Verse 8 is to the Gentiles; “ye (the Gentiles) did service unto them which by nature areno gods”. But both must come under the blood of the cross.

            No conscience=no fear of God     No fear of God=no salvation
