Is it possible that mankind’s morality will one day exceed the moral objectives laid by God?

Next question. Do you think it’s possible for mankind morality can ever exceed the objective truth and morality of God?

Speaker 1

So there’s a verse that comes to mind to me that’s Isaiah 55 nine. And it says, or as the heavens are higher than Earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts? So God’s here telling us that he is on a level that’s way beyond us and the word ways there is often, I think, associated with God’s laws and his morality. And we really should be seeking his ways, not strain from his ways. Sin is often compared to strain from God’s ways. And it’s interesting that Christianity, when it started off his first called the Way, Christ showed a new way of living in the way to life, the way to God. So it’s definitely different. Whereas compared to the world, what are we told James 44, it says, do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? The world thinks it’s wise, the world thinks it’s moral, the world thinks it’s good, but it’s really not at its core, it’s not Godly. God, his ways is love, right? God is love. And in the world, we’re selfish, we’re looking at ourselves, we’re panicking, we’re in fear, and those things are driving our decisions, whereas God is just above it all.

Speaker 1

He sees everything, knows everything, loves everybody, and is wanting us to live up to that standard, which will always be higher than any standard. Weekend and it took Jesus coming on the cross to show us what God’s love in his ways are really like, that God is willing to self sacrifice, to show he loves us and to bring us back to him. So, yeah, he’s way beyond our morality and comprehension. It’s going to take us millions of years, all of eternity to even comprehend God’s love.

Speaker 2

Yeah. I think a lot of times we are in this world, especially, I think in a lot of educational systems and such. You’re in this small group and they teach a lot of things and you become an expert at that thing. And then a lot of people develop from that concept that they have full understanding and they know everything that there is to know. But it’s really because the world is so small that they’re in the bubble is so small and they haven’t really gotten a full understanding of God’s immense amount of love and awesomeness. I think a lot of people end up getting kind of caught up in this sort of limited way of thinking that there’s all this great science, there’s all this knowledge, there’s all of this stuff that’s available to us today that people before us didn’t have. And so there’s kind of a superiority complex that develops. But I kind of hate to break it to you, actually, I don’t because it’s really important to understand that God’s ways are so much bigger, so much more vast and no matter how much knowledge we know and how much understanding we have like it’s still a drop in the bucket or drop in the ocean compared to all that God knows and has and that’s what his word tells us and we can understand components of it and it’s awesome the more we get to experience God’s love in our life and understand more of his ways but it is so much more beyond us than any human walking this Earth has the ability to understand and understand not just in mind, but in wholeness really deeply understand and be able to operate understand it well enough to be able to

Speaker 2

operate according to it it’s massive.

Speaker 1

So Kell green, it’s good to see you Cal we missed you last week and he says, no, it’s not good the world’s there’s lusty things and it’s bad. That’s why he doesn’t want us to be or love the world and I guess we should clarify what do you mean? We mean when we say the world I mean we are talking about just the world in general which is very corrupt we’re not talking about necessarily individuals. God does love individuals we are called to love the individuals like there’s gorgeous nature out there. We’re supposed to love the nature of God created but yeah, this world as we know it is not going to be our home. God’s going to wipe it out and start over creating new heavens and a new Earth that’s what we really be looking forward to and we might get to talk a little bit more about that later today.
