Good

What is good without God?

Can good hinge on human emotion?  some sort of rational definition? or on collective perspective of mankind?  Is it possible to have a definite moral definition of good without an example of the ultimate good – that which we know as God?

What is truth without Truth?

Some would say truth can be determined by scientific analysis of our environment – the collection of evidence, outcome of various tests, and the repeatability of those tests in order to verify theorems and hypotheses about the world around us, but how can we be certain that that evidence, those tests, the very observations made are not tainted by our very perspective?

What is real? How do you define real?  If you are talking about your senses, what you feel, taste, smell, or see, then all you’re talking about are electrical signals interpreted by your brain.

So if truth is merely chemical and electrical signals interpreted by our brains, then what is truth other than a commonly held perspective?

Without God, there can be no good, no evil, no truth.  Our own fragile lives and transient attitudes and mores are not adequate judges of goodness and truth even when collectively massed into a common consensus.

Is it good for a man to marry a girl only twelve or thirteen years old?  In America, it is not considered good, but in Pakistan or Afghanistan, it is common.  How can we condemn someone in America for something that is perfectly acceptable elsewhere without having some sort of definition of good?

Good can be defined as being positive or desirable in nature.  This viewpoint is prone to self-virtuosity and justification.  A writer that I personally know asked generally yesterday how our culture turns out vicious criminals that lack remorse.

The simple answer is that our culture has fallen away from the ultimate Good and Truth.  We celebrate libertine values with indefinite welfare, no fault divorce laws, homosexuality, idols so various and numerous that I could write twenty pages on just a small sample of them, glamorization of personally destructive lifestyles, and through the faux-good of “tolerance.”

Public opinion is a poor arbiter of good.  There is and can only be one Good and one Truth – unbendable, uncompromising, eternal, and perfect.   So next time someone starts preaching tolerance for same sex marriage, abortion on demand, welfare or anything else that is contrary to Truth (even equating Christianity with Wiccanism or some other religious viewpoint – they cannot both be true!), keep a wary eye – while it might ‘feel’ good to be tolerant for a time, the steps taken in the name of tolerance of evil and sin can only further degenerate society from one of laws and justice based on God-given truth and goodness, to one variable on the transient whims of man and his follies.

The Shadow of the Gun

Gun horror is not a productive emotion, but learned helplessness disguised as moral superiority. Rather than teaching children to hate killers, schools are instead teaching them to hate guns. And reducing murders to instruments rather than morals, children are left with no sense of right and wrong, only an instinctive horror of violence.
