The Individual and His Moral Code… Phil Kulis

2 Comments

The strawman argument of which moral code is the correct one is ridiculous. Pick a standard of Moral Law and adhere to it. You can’t.

Whatever your moral code is, being a human, you’ve never been able to keep it.

That’s called sin.

How do you deal with the issue of the sin you have committed for violating your own moral code?

Do you just say it’s all relative and you can do whatever you want when it pleases you? (Moral relativism?)

Then that means you have no integrity and makes you a liar. This is violating your own moral code.

What then is justice? You cannot claim to be a just and righteous person if you have no integrity.

If someone violates what you consider your moral law, and you judge. And you condemn them. Yet, you allow yourself to violate it without reconciliation. Then you are the wicked and evil of this world.

“The Deity may be able to forgive sin, but I do not see how.” -Plato

Arguing about what Moral Law is doesn’t address the issue of VIOLATING the Moral Law. You don’t have any way of undoing the violation. You are condemned by your own insistence on a moral code.

You damn yourself with no way out.

The perpetrator of the crime stands bound in chains with law enforcement holding him before the Judge. The case has been heard and the jury is unanimous. The verdict is GUILTY. The sentence is DEATH.

There is no argument over which moral code the person thought was better. He violated his own code. He also judged and condemned others for what he himself did.

Justice must be served.

The gavel comes down. The Bailiff is about to take him away to the execution of the sentence.

The Judge stands and says to the Bailiff, “Wait!”

The Judge brings forth His only Son from the audience and says to the Bailiff, “Let the prisoner go free, My Son will serve his sentence in his place.”

The prisoner is set free. And the Son is put to death in his place.

You are the prisoner. God the Father is the Judge and His Son is Jesus Christ.

Are you going to continue to violate the Moral Law? There is no other to take your place for any subsequent court appearance.

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 20+ years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University. When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing. Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing. Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies. Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. God’s prophetic words have reached millions in over 190 countries. Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project… Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy. At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.

    As far as your comment that “repentance is pointless”, nothing could be further from the truth. The enemy has deceived much of the Last Days Ecclesia with that lie. Repentance is crucial to enter the Kingdom of heaven. Jesus fulfilled the law, yes, and His first and only commandment to us was to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Loving the Lord our God so fully and completely as He described involves living as He lived, and that behavior being our very nature. He told us to be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect. He wouldn’t have said it if it weren’t possible. Through His Holy Spirit, it IS possible, no matter how many excuses we come up with to the contrary. That perfection involves being sinless – never missing the mark. There’s NO WAY we can do that on our own, and that’s why His Holy Spirit is here to strengthen us, guide us, teach us, and comfort us. I’ve not arrived at His perfection point. I long to. I will to, so I will. We need to speak things that we don’t see as though they were so that they will become. Just claim His perfection in your heart and you will find yourself walking in His gift of repentance.
    May the blessings of YHVH chase you down, find you, and overtake you, in Jesus’ name.

    So, the laws of the Covenant are a “strawman argument”? Why are they called COMMANDMENTS?
    If compliance is impossible, repentance is pointless. Matthew {5:17} “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. {5:18} For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” – KJV
