Who sets the moral standards for everyone to follow?
Morality is not relative
The 2020 pandemic has led to a relative definition of morals. Modern atheists and left liberals see morality as a matter of opinion. For example, gender is a social construct, or a marriage can be between both sexes or a trouple (multiple partners).
Through the ages, philosophers set moral standards: Aristotle said moral excellence brings happiness, Plato based morality on transcendent criteria, and Kant emphasized universal principles and ethical duties.
However, despite societal progress, many people continue to live immoral lives. They are disobedient even to the natural laws because they refuse the authority of Jesus Christ—who alone can define moral truths.
Jesus alone defines moral truths.
Satan is not against morals
Unbelievers follow a set of morals in order to fit into society and not get into trouble—basically. In other words, they live moral lives to please others but left to themselves; they will be indulgent.
“Satan is not against good morals; he is opposed to Jesus Christ. A man can have good morals his entire life, yet you and I know he will go to hell when he dies,” — Dr. Norris Anderson, a fictional character in the Time Changer movie.
The authority of Jesus should be the basis for morality
Jesus sets the moral authority. Although He is God, all He did as a human while on earth were done for His Father’s glory (Philippians 2:6)
Without Jesus’ authority, morality is a matter of opinion.
“But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
