365 Days of Writing Prompts: morality

[24 June]

Where do your morals come from — your family? Your faith? Your philosophical worldview? How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source?

I am thinking revelation. Not the book. But in general, like the concept.

Man was to know according to God’s revelation. That’s what the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was about – it represented man’s attempt to know independent of the one whose very nature is truth.

The question has been asked. If not from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, how was man to know good and/or evil? The reality is that they already knew. In relation to his knowledge of good, are we to assume that the divine words of Genesis 1 were kept a secret from the man in Genesis 3? I doubt it. In Genesis 1 God speaks of His creation as good (and very good). There’s the good – it’s declared by the revelation of God.

And evil? In the commission associated with God’s making man in His image – is the prohibition – representing any and all forms of disobedience.

So, where do my morals come from? God. God and His revelation.
