Matter of Faith: What is moral?


From: Phil Sorensen

One of our politicians recently said that if choosing between what is moral and facts (truth), she would choose morality. Can you separate the two, and who determines what is moral? A news commentator, while condemning racism, demonized white men. When an individual or society determines what is or is not moral, we are setting ourselves up for confusion, contradiction and catastrophe. There is only one lawgiver, and that is God Himself. Truth and morality are on the same page.

The Psalmist raised the question, “What is man that you are mindful of him, or the son of man that you consider him?” We were made a little lower than the angels, yet given a special place of honor in God’s economy. Regardless of who we are, we are important to God. He loves us and desires what is right and good for all. His moral law was given to establish an orderly and healthy society. To violate it will eventually corrupt and destroy a free society. The Bible tells us that righteousness makes a nation great; sin is demeaning and destructive to any society (Proverbs 14:34).

What is moral? True morality is seeking to know God and learning His will and ways. His love and forgiveness is on the table for us. It’s yours when you put your faith in Him. Jesus invites us to come to him and discover his love and peace (Matthew 11:28-29).
