All moral values are not equal

All moral values are not equal -
The dishonesty of believing that it doesn’t matter what a person’s believes and what lifestyle is followed, just so long as there is sincerity

It is universally accepted that 2 plus 2 equals 4. Mathematics is considered, an “Empirical Science.” The results of addition, subtraction, dividing, and multiplying are consistent, and all the “values” continually make perfect “mathematical sense.”

In the case with “moral values,” it is increasingly becoming accepted in our culture that many, most, or all moral values, are of equal worth and value. “Morality” [ethics, principles, decency, goodness, honesty, integrity] comprises human and divine values of “right” and “wrong;” and of, “good” and “evil.”

The flawed thinking (logic) of: “Every person has the right to determine what is moral for his own being:”

Every person has the God given freedom to choose for themselves between good and evil. This freedom is commonly known as “free will,” or, “free moral agency.”

The flawed argument, is -- that all personal determinations are [equally] moral. The flawed thinking is, as follows: “Whatever, you choose for yourself is okay and whatever I choose for myself is okay – just leave me alone because my value system carries equal weight.” This type of thinking is utterly illogical, damaging, and destructive and lacks credible foundation.

Atheists will continue to [accusingly] point out evil models and personalities of those associated with the Christian Religion - and other religions. Then, they proceed, (in their skewed thinking) to justify their [own] value system. They tell themselves that their value system carries equal weight to all other value systems. Their flawed assumption ignores a host of principled fundamentals and disciplines, as they would then, [logically] have to admit that the 9/11 Twin Tower disaster and Hitler’s treacherous regime, was perfectly justified.

The “Equal Values” contention (multiculturalism) ignores objective “outside” standards:

Many people fall into the cultural trap which preaches that all human value systems are equal. This is sometimes referenced, as, "Multiculturalism." Essentially, when a person adopts that type of philosophy, they can justify anything – including strapping terrorist bombs to the bodies of young boys and girls. Radical Islamic terrorists are fanatically mesmerized into this damnable type of erroneous thinking.

They live in their fantasy world and some day will come to realize [too late] their Creator Christ who will grant them their life’s cumulative “rewards" [punishments]. -- [Gospel of Matthew 25:31-46 ; Acts 17:31] Once at the “judgment seat” of Creator Christ, they, (or anyone else) will be able to convince themselves that “all human value systems are equal.” Gospel of John 18:37 ; 2 Corinthians 5:10 ; Romans 14:10-12



The Value “System” that is incomparable and priceless:

The God / man Jesus Christ, whom the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures testify, was born without sin, lived, suffered, was crucified, buried and rose from the dead, [Acts 17:31] said this:

For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” Gospel of John 18:37

Friend, if you are caught up in the “equal value systems trap” of today’s culture, and attempting to live your life without your Creator Christ [Colossians 1:13-20] – then, I pity you. I pity you because you will have squandered the opportunity of a lifetime and of an eternity. [Luke 16:19-31] You will have bartered your priceless soul for worthless human depravity. Whether you like to realize it or not, you are a sinner who needs Christ’s eternal forgiveness and love. If you reject Him and go your own way, He will not stand in the way of the free will that He has granted you. Luke 16:19-31

As a Christian, and as an emeritus Christian pastor, I urge you to discover through earnest and humble search, what is, of priceless eternal worth. [Proverbs 1:1f ; Psalm 1:1f ; Luke 18:9-14] May you come to realize that all human value systems are not equal, and that only in the Lord, Creator Jesus Christ, will you find the truth – and not only the truth, but the eternal (forever) respite for your ongoing life, after death. 


May God's Holy Spirit grant you, anguish over personal sin, and that you come to faith in Christ and repentance for your many sins. [Luke 18:9-14 ; Luke 19:1-10 ; John 3:14-21 ; Matthew 7:13-29] May you be granted life eternal, rather, than death eternal. Matthew 10:28 ; Matthew 10:32-39

Amen.
