Morality in Societies Around the World ...
WHEN DIFFICUL TIES ARISE
It is readily admitted that because of modern
science, technology and new discoveries there come times when decisions are
difficult. We find ourselves in what we call grey areas.
Specific subjects were not even known when the
Bible was written, so how can it help us decide?
First, it does give us some principles to guide
us. For instance if we believe that man was made in the Image of God then we
must respect the sanctity of life at all levels. Nature also helps us. The
apostle Paul in Romans chapter 1 , describes sexual perversity as 'unnatural'.
A further help is the Christian conscience
which gives powerful intuitions. In some Christian bookshops one can purhase a
bracelet with the initials WWJD. "What would Jesus do"? A timely reminder to
follow His example, and very often when the question is sincerely asked the
right answer comes.
