Recent Survey II
A recent survey of religious beliefs shared by members of a larger Lutheran body revealed the following:
69% said there is no absolute standard; right and wrong depends on the situation and your own beliefs.
As a Christian I believe that the Bible is the Word of God. As such it is absolutely trsutworthy and reliable in all that it says. One of the things recorded in the Bible, in both Old and New Testaments, is God's Ten Commandments. Those Ten Commandments tell us us what is absolutely right and wrong in God's sight, as it is God's standard.
It is comforting to know that certain of our words and actions are absolutely right or absolutely wrong. If the situation you are in dictates right and wrong than with every situation right and wrong can change. We do not get to decide what is right and wrong based on a particular situation. God already has decided that for us.
Many people think that what they believe is right or wrong is what makes something right or wrong. Even governments do not allow for such an understanding of the law. Something is either right or wrong and that never changes. What you believe and the situation you' re in don't really dictate right and wrong. God does that. If you have a problem with that then you have a problem with God and his Word.
