Secular Morality Is Dangerous to Society

Secular Morality Is Dangerous to Society

It is conventional wisdom in our secularized culture that biblical morality is not just outdated and irrelevant but dangerous to modern society. Today’s discussion proves that the opposite is the case: it is secular morality that is dangerous to society.

How to Morally Share Your Moral Beliefs with Others

How to Morally Share Your Moral Beliefs with Others

The question is not whether Christians should be allowed to “impose” their moral beliefs on others, but the most moral means by which they—and everyone else—should do so. Here we find secular and biblical answers that align.

Laws Shape How We Think about the World Around Us

Laws Shape How We Think about the World Around Us

If our intuitions do influence our moral decisions, even overriding our best intentions and our rationality, we’d do well to pay attention to what is shaping themWhat’s legally available (or not) shapes them, and not just because people don’t want to get in trouble. Laws create conditions, such as whether we have access to certain products and advertising. Laws make some financial incentives possible, but not others. They can also normalize or stigmatize behaviors. In other words, laws play a role in fostering the habits of a people, and people tend to be formed by their habits. Laws should not enable and should never incentivize bad habits. Good habits, on the other hand, also form our moral intuitions.

Dr. Martin Luther King and the Nature of Law

In his memorable “Letter from the Birmingham Jail,” Martin Luther King, Jr., threw down the gauntlet in his great Civil Rights crusade when he refused to obey what he regarded as an immoral man-made law that did not match up with the law of God.

Why Trying to Legislate Morality Is a Mistake

Why Trying to Legislate Morality Is a Mistake

Would people commit fewer sins if more sinful activity was made illegal? Probably so. But would they become more righteous and draw closer to God if that were the case? History says the answer is most likely no, and that’s what our Lord cares about the most.

The simple fact is that you and I are just as fallen and temptable as those who oppose biblical morality. Our sins are no less sinful than theirs. The difference is that “by grace [we] have been saved through faith” (Ephesians 2:8). We have received a transforming gift we are now called to pay forward to those who need the grace we have experienced. So, when you hear about Christians being ridiculed for biblical morality, pray for your fellow believers and for those who disparage them. 

Christians Need to Stand for Biblical Morality Whatever the Personal Cost

Christians Need to Stand for Biblical Morality Whatever the Personal Cost

More than ever before in American history, America’s Christians will need to be both courageous and persuasive. We will need to stand for biblical morality whatever the personal cost, remembering that “all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted” (2 Timothy 3:12). And we will need to persuade our fellow citizens that biblical morality is best for them and for society since we can no longer depend on legislation and legislators to do that job for us. In other words, Christians in the twenty-first century are returning to the first century.

Mr. Putin's Speech and the Matter of Moral High Ground in the West

God is long-suffering. His nature is one of love and mercy. Yet, His Word is indivisible. We disobey Him to our certain devastation. We can turn to God in repentance and faith. Now is the time to pray for an outpouring of the Spirit of revival in Christian communities throughout the West. Today is the day for believers, and pastors, in particular, to speak the truth to our generation: If you deny the reality of God, you will soon deny reality.
