Three Good Reasons to Believe in God (PART 4)

--CONTINUED FROM PART 3--

Three origins of the Moral Law have been suggested:

Biological evolution, "kinship" and "reciprocation". Their position is that abidance of the "moral law," - Is due to evolution and accomplishes no purpose other than to enhance the survivability of the human race.

"The "Moral Law" is learned social behavior passed from adults to children; collective human experience has recognized that certain restrictions on social behavior result in a more pleasant society for all."

The Christian position is that the "Moral Law" is really God's commandment to love your neighbor as yourself (Mat 22:36-40). This commandment embodies the sum total of the Law given to us by God (Rom 13:8-10, Gal 5:14). To make sure no one missed the instructions, he wrote His Law on everyone's heart (Rom 1:18-20; 2:14,15).

Consider, for a moment, the following groups of people in our society; assume these people are institutionalized with no means of support beyond public charity:

Elderly (with no relatives) suffering from severe Alzheimer's disease
Orphan babies with AIDS
Orphan babies with Down's Syndrome

Preserving the lives of these individuals causes a drain on the resources of society and in no way enhances the survivability of the human race. Would you like to have them killed? If a little voice inside you is saying, "These people need love and compassion," that voice does not have biological evolution as its origin. Mutation, genetic drift, migration and natural selection cannot justify giving "kindness" priority over personal well being.
