About This Blog...

Hey guys! I am honored that you would take the time to read this blog. I hope that what I have to share will be worth your time. You may ask yourself, "What's up with the title of this blog?" The title Siloam's Pool comes from John 9:7. There was a man who came to Jesus who was born blind. As Jesus and the disciples passed by the man, Jesus used this man's condition to teach an important spiritual lesson to his followers. Jesus affirmed that the man had been born blind in order that God might be honored through this man's life. Then Jesus said in a dramatic statement, "We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world." (John 9:4-5). He then told the man to go and wash in the Pool of Siloam. The name "Siloam" means "sent." The man went and washed and came back seeing. It is my hope that through this blog, that perhaps someone might see as a result of the truth that is shared here. I will do my best to honor your time. God bless!

A Life Without Morals
July 27, 2011

Romans 1:18- 19 says,

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.  19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. (ESV)

         Essentially, these verses are teaching that it is necessary to suppress the truth of the gospel in order to "free" yourself to live a life without moral constraints. However, moral constraints will always exist no matter who you are. When these exist, they find their foundation in the only moral Lawgiver, a monotheistic God.

        If this were not so, deities would collide and one of them would have to win out to establish the universal moral law that we all follow. It is universally wrong to kill, steal, and violate someone's freedom. If we follow Darwinian evolution, then there would be no reason that these would be wrong. This would be an example of survival of the fittest.

         It is natural to find order in our universe and in our human relationships. If you observe a society long enough, you will find a social order is always established, and there are rules that govern how that society will view right and wrong. No society will tolerate murder of its own people (even headhunters won't allow this). No society will tolerate theft. No society will tolerate sexual deviance such as rape. But in all of these societies, we find there are certain rules that apply to all societies.

          These rules are universal moral laws. Since no law can exist without a Lawgiver, these form the foundation for belief in a moral lawgiver. This is known as the Moral Argument for the existence of God. It has also been one of the most powerful arguments throughout history for the existence of God.
