Objective Morality Without God
OK, Christians…here’s what we’re up against. When you take God out of the equation, the question of “right and wrong” is a moot point. It isn’t objective morality at the point. It’s opinion. And guess what? If your opinion differs from mine, all you have to do to win the day is be the stronger one. That’s the beauty of natural selection in process. Watch this short video of a courteous debate between Sean McDowell (a Christian) and Michael Shermer.
It’s interesting how often those who reject God have no problem using the word “absolute”. By whose authority would anything be absolutely true or right or acceptable…if not God? Well, the god of “self” of course. Trouble with that notion is…
…there are over 7 billion “selfs” on the planet.
That’s a lot of potential for differences of opinion. So whose opinion wins? The more educated? The more enlightened? The stronger, more visually appealing of the races?
It’s a rabbit hole with no bottom when you erase the one true, living loving God from the equation. He doesn’t wish that any person should perish (exist apart from Him) forever, but He’s fully aware of the vast majority of humans who want no part of Him and His “rewards and punishments” system.
So, there’s a place where you can go and exist forever without having to listen to, watch, or read any words from us pesky Christians ever again. Just think…you’ll never have to debate anyone ever again on ideas like objective morality, natural selection, or creationism. What a relief…right? Well, it’ll only be a relief if you’re right in your atheist worldview. If not…well….
