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.

    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
