A “Sign” of the Times

So sorry rabbi… Recently a friend of mine gave me a short clip out of a local newspaper to read (see below) and asked my opinion about what it said.  My friend knows that I’m a Christian and where I stand on issues of faith, but I think he was trying to get me to...

Starting a Grassroots Apologetics Ministry

Starting an Apologetic Ministry I had the privilege of speaking with Chris Arnzen of Iron Sharpens Iron Radio about the birth of New York Apologetics and how to start an apologetics ministry.  We know that "unless the Lord builds it, it's laborers labor in vain", so...

Beware the Hebrew Roots Movement

Hebrew Roots is dangerous! In my recent radio interview with Chris Arnzen on the Iron Sharpens Iron Radio Show, I was asked a question about the Hebrew Roots movement.  Although I've heard about the movement and knew some basic information, I promised to post some...

Evolution: Science Fable, or fact?

This hilarious video on evolution illustrates the absurdity of the Theory of Evolution and the consequences that follow.  On evolution, you have no significant value or meaning.  

Think God started Evolution? Think again!

The idea of theistic evolution has come under fire recently and rightfully so.  Several scientists and theologians have worked together to address the idea in a new book called "Theistic Evolution".  In it, they explain that the storyline of scripture, and...

Gospel contradictions as a source of confidence?

Can multiple eyewitness accounts be the key to getting the truth? As you watch the video below, ask yourself these questions: If many people are eyewitnesses to an event, does that mean that their stories must be identical?  Do their stories have to match verbatim?...

Martin Niemoller

Martin Niemoller was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist.Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

The bathroom bill controversy continues as the two sides argue over who is morally correct.

two observations:

1. Corporate involvement negates democracy.

2. Fighting over morality points to an objective moral standard.

Observation 1

Corporate involvement negates democracy

It is horrifying as the corporate elite take over our democratic process in plain sight.

 

Here is a quote from one such article,

The Texas Assn. of Business has also run radio ads warning that an “unnecessary” bill deemed to discriminate against transgender people may cost Texas the 2018 NFL draft.

This is an outright threat to the democratic process. What is being said here, that if you vote against us we will harm you?

Here is another quote,

Leaders of more than 50 Houston-based businesses, including BP America, Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell and Halliburton, signed a letter to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott urging him not to sign a so-called bathroom bill that would harm their ability to attract and retain talent from around the world.”

This one blatantly puts money above morality? 

Is our morality now based on business? What ever side of the argument you are on, you should be outraged at what is happening to our democratic process!

 

observationObservation 2

Fighting over morality points to an objective moral standard

Both sides of this transgender bathroom bill are claiming moral high ground.

If one position is truly morally superior to the other, you are actually appealing to an objective moral standard. If you say it is not an objective moral standard, it becomes a matter of statistical superiority. Once a statistic becomes the standard, you have no reason for outrage or the feeling of injustice. You can’t have it both ways.

Judging by the outrage on both sides this is more than statistics. Both sides seem to imply that there are moral standards which are being violated to the point of injustice.

If this is true, then everyone is appealing to the same moral standard, which would have to be objective and not subjective.

Where would an objective moral standard come from?

You cannot have an objective moral standard without God. Think about it!
