.Apologetics — The Moral Law? | February 3, 2019

 

“Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. Isaiah 1:18a

 

The Moral Law
One claims that God cannot exist because evil exists
If there is “evil” then there must be “good”
Discerning “good” from “evil” requires a Moral Law
A Moral Law requires a Moral Law Giver
But you’re trying to disprove this Moral Law Giver

 

Where Do Good & Evil Come From?
Evolution?
          No—It would be ever changing
Reason?
          No—It can only explain it, but used for other things
Conscience?
          No—Hitler had a conscience.
          Is yours right and his wrong?
Human Nature?
          No—Human nature is WHY we need a Moral Law
Utilitarianism?
          “What is morally right is determined by whatever creates the greatest happiness for the greatest number of people
          No—If 90% were happy with enslaving the 10%?

 

Why Do Apologetics?
We’re told to always be prepared… 1Peter 3:15
We should “demolish arguments” that set themselves up against the knowledge of God… 2 Cor 10:5
Be on guard against hollow and deceptive philosophy… Col 2:8-10
But DON’T ARGUE!
“He who has ears to hear, let him hear”… Jesus
