Be Right or Go Wrong

We are living in a time when to be right is relative.

Call it the “New Morality”.

The “New Morality” says that man’s reason should be the instrument of moral judgment. It’s not a matter of what is good or right but rather what is fitting to the situation or lifestyle I want to live.

I used to think this was just a problem from the liberal or “left” side of society but I have come realize that even on the “right” we are raising generations of relativists.

The supreme law for the “New Moralists” is Love.  Or as the left would say “compassion”.

That sounds like it should be a good thing but to these New Moralists any “standards” of right and wrong stifle love and compassion.

Today’s moral relativist is willing to ignore any principle if he thinks he can show more love by its violation than its obedience.  The ends justify the means.

Look at politics just in the past few years. Our leaders can lie to pass their agenda that they think demonstrates more “love” and no one bats an eye.

Today’s New Morality” is being used to condone and accept every sort of sin from adultery, lying, abortion, homosexual behavior, coveting, theft…The only sin that is not acceptable at the moment is outright murder unless of course you are in the womb. And we now have “ethicists” claiming that elderly, the too infirm, handicapped, etc. may not be of the same value.

Millions are suffering the consequences of having no moral compass to guide them. We can rationalize any type of behavior in the name of love but without a Biblical guideline, the New moral relativist has no way of knowing whether what he is doing or condoning is truly loving.

The person who engages in moral relativism has no fixed standard of what is right and what is wrong. Right is simply whatever he “feels” is in his best interest at the time.

Having no moral compass, no standards or guidelines is no different than setting sail without having plotted a course to your destination.

It sort of reminds me of a famous Yogi Berra saying “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

I am a Christian; my moral compass is the Bible. It’s not ambiguous; It’s clear cut and IT IS based on Love and compassion but Love is clearly defined. It’s the same standard for everyone, not just a select few.

To be right requires you to have a worldview based on reality.
