Standard

What is morality? How do you know which one is right or which one is wrong. What are the factors that define good and bad. Does a government mandate that makes something legal morally right? When it’s accepted by the majority and becomes the norm, does that make it good? When it fulfill your desires and pleasures, so long as you’re not hurting anyone.

Why is it that the more technologically advance we are, the more backwards we become morally and common sense keep diminishing.  Whether we like it or not there’s always a consequence for every action.  That, no one can deny the outcome of it, that’s how you judge it if it’s good or bad.  Galatians 6:7 even says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” One of my friend asked me, “How do I know that the Bible is true?”  In which, I simply answer, “It is self evident.  That whatever you sow, that’s what you’ll reap.

And yet people blame Christianity for all the problems of society.  That we should do whatever we want.  Never mind if it’s ethical or not, so long as it is legal.  So long as it satisfies one’s desire. There’s only one problem I found with this logic.  None of the Gospel’s teaching were followed.  How could you put the blame into something that you never followed. Never even bother to read it.  Try it sometime, apply it to your life what the Bible says.  You might just find what you’re looking for.  Don’t you get tired of listening to the world.  You do this and that and yet you come up empty.

To think of it, the Bible is God’s standard.  Wherever you go in life, there’s always a standard you have to follow.  Take for an example the products we consume, the technology we buy and the food we eat.  They have to have a certain standards to follow or else it’ll be inferior or just useless piece of garbage.  The same thing applies to our lives.  Without it, everything is just chaos.  Here is a video about why modern art are so bad.  In a way you could relate it to our lives.

Sowing and Reaping

Is God to be blamed for our troubles? Humanity has at its lowest point in history. We have been reduced to mere animals or even worse, a monster. Animals are more civilized compare to us, because they know the order of natural things. The word human are not applicable to us anymore. Because what makes us human are all gone. What matters now is to do whatever please or suit us in our current situation. Long gone are the days of compassion and forgiveness, to love your neighbor, your fellow-man or even your enemy is now a thing of the past. Wives don’t respect their husbands anymore. Husbands don’t love and care for their wives anymore. Sons and daughters despise their parents. Young people don’t have respect for the elderly, they get beat up, rob, rape and laugh at. Violence, sexual perversion, consumerism and the love of money permeates our lives. Majority of the people doesn’t want to stand up for what is true, right and pure. We rather listen to lies than be set free by the truth. We give up liberty in exchange for security and wealth, so long as we are comfortable. Yet, in spite of all this we wonder why everything is breaking down. We look upon our own leaders and put our trust in man, looking for answers, but things are getting worse and worse. We’ve made ourselves as gods, answering to no one but only to our selves. And yet we begged to ask and have the audacity to ask this question, “Why God? ” All the things that befall on humanity are the consequences of our choice. So, I leave you this verse to contemplate on, Galatians 6:7.
