Morals are man made?
Who came up with that crock? ...OH! wait.... now I understand... johniam is back.
Well.... let's see... morals? The subject is morals, right?
The 10 Commandments - God's Revelation in the Old Testament
The 10 Commandments are found in the Bible's Old Testament at Exodus, Chapter 20. They were given directly by God to the people of Israel at Mount Sinai after He had delivered them from slavery in Egypt:
"And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your God…
ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'
TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'
Is not being idolatrous a moral? Okay, maybe not. But there could be an argument made for loyalty being a moral. If that doesn't suit you, we'll call it good moral fiber - or character.
THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.'
Whaddya think folks? I say yes - but I'll let you vote.
FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'
FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.'
I'd call this a moral (And so would Jesus - but I digress.)
SIX: 'You shall not murder.'
Yep... sounds like a moral to me.
SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'
Uh-huh - moral... check!
EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'
NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'
Don't lie about people - now if you don't think this is a moral, then don't get all uppity about falsehoods in the press or the dirty business of politics. If you're willing to blow this one off as "man-made" for VP, then you'd have to accept it everywhere else you encounter it.
TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'
Coveting is tricky - because it has to do with the "I wanna's," It's more internal. BUT if you say this isn't a moral, then I can see how you'd condone der Victoid stealing money, homes, wives... whatever the heck he wanted.
Those look like morals to me. But since johniam says that morals are really man-made, I'll just ignore them and go do as I please.
