Moral Argument–What it teaches us about God?

As I’ve stated earlier the moral argument for God’s existence is one of my favorites.  Although I would agree that the Cosmological Argument (read more here) and the Teleological argument  (read it here) carry the most weight in our society, the moral argument has always intrigued me.

By way of reminder the moral argument states that since moral standards exist (i.e. all people have some sense of right and wrong), then we must account for where these morals come from. Or to put it negatively:

1. If God does not exist, then neither do objective morals.
2. Objective moral values exist
3. Therefore, God exists.

We have also answered the objections to this argument.

What does this teach us about God?  It teaches us that God is concerned with human behavior.  It teaches that God has a divine standard and has given man the ability to know right and wrong (and to choose the right over the wrong).  This also should put within our hearts the desire to want to know what this standard is.

  1. I think it’s a very good point that we all have an intrinsic sense of right and wrong. Paul said that even the Gentile’s without the law did the law. Not that they followed the law of Moses, but that they knew the differences between right and wrong.

    Thank you Thomas for your comment. I agree whole-heatedly, even the Scriptures bear witness to the validity of universal morality.
