Some Christians argue that if morality doesn’t come from God, then there is no reason to be moral. Even if there is no God we still have to learn to get along. Do chimpanzees believe in God? They have a certain social order. Theft, murder, deception and infidelity take place. But they also cooperate, and express tenderness and generosity. Human morality is what we make it. We have more self-awareness than most animals and our society is more complex. Some people think we should permit homosexuality, others argue that it hurts the family. I think that stealing office supplies from my employer hurts me. It reduces company profits and if I get caught it damages my reputation. When we look to the Bible for moral guidelines we find a lot of wisdom. But many of its prohibitions no longer make sense today. “Because I said so” is every parent’s weakest reason for obedience. “Because God said so” is any person’s weakest reason for deciding that something is wrong.
