True Christian Morality..the understanding


Understanding Basic Morality ~ SOCT

What is “morality”? Are all people born with it? These are questions that have answers in the Bible. Please take out time to read this basic understanding of morality and its connection with human development and thinking. Written by Mr. E.W.King, founder of COGSR & SOCT.

All people have some sense of “right” and “wrong”. The problem is that this concept is distorted and perverted from the get go. Why? Due to SIN. Mankind is infected with sin just like a computer may be infected with a virus. Sin is the “transgression of the Law”. Who’s law? God’s Law. ~

The next question might become: “What about children? Where do they get their sense of right and wrong?” These are good questions. First let us establish a Biblical foundation regarding the human condition and right and wrong. Let me say here that “values” have a lot to do with the way you perceive morality. SOCT understands this working equation: ~

morals + values = perception ~

By ‘values’ we mean the importance and worth of something. The world’s values will seem opposite to God’s values. When Christians experience this it can cause “false guilt” and make them feel like misfits. True Christianity can get difficult but it is all worth it. True character development takes growing pains. ~

To those who choose not to believe in God this life is all there is. This creates a major distortion regarding the value we place on people and our perception of morality. Worldy people will be seen placing more value on the elements of life which cause them pleasure. They will fall under a higher score regarding the SOCT understanding of the “Interest Factor” when it comes to “collecting” things. Christians will learn to develop ETERNAL VALUES. Christians manifest a better stability and less stress in the area of moral choice making. ~

Mans Moral Traits

The Bible teaches that God has placed a basic urge to be moral in mans heart. We understand that our original parents [Adam & Eve] were created with the capability to develop and grow towards a deeper meaning and experience of true morality. This all of course involves the understanding and experience of true (undistorted) reality. ~

Fallen man lacks the power of spiritual discernment. If you tell a psychologist that they lack “spiritual discernment” get ready to watch the anger level rise. Fallen man is determined that human reason and logic in and of itself can figure out all the problems of life. This of course is another major distortion of the human condition. ~

The apostle Paul describes sin in the New Testament as “missing the mark”. We could understand that “missing the mark” is not a negative concept of omission but a positive act of commission. Sin is a deviation of the Truth. There is what we call “true ignorance” of God’s static morality and there is also “willful ignorance”. The Bible does predict that the world in the “last days” would see and experience an unprecedented decline in morals. Much of it is due to “false teachings” resulting in apathy. This is why we here at Church of God ~ Speaking to the Remnant [aka SOCT] stress the importance of PURE DOCTRINE and RIGHT INFORMATION when learning the Bible. ~

God has placed a basic “blue print” if you will of His law [morals and principles] in mans heart. Man tries to work off of his distorted perception of this trait placed within him. So we must understand that the core of moral meaning comes from innateness, within man. Other factors which begin to shape mans understanding of morality could be listed as such: ~

1, Survival (mans need to live) ~

2, Fairness ~

3, Physical harm (mans need to not be harmed) ~

4, Disgust (this varies due to culture and predisposition) ~

5, Disrespect (this involves value perception) ~

6, Important cultural norms ~

Now these factors do not “create morality” they help in shaping the existinginnate and predisposition of morality which God has already placed within each and every one of our hearts. There are basic understandings that we need to clear up here regarding the study of morality amongst the fallen world of psychology. Psychology places the understanding of human morality under the following theories or some combination of them: ~

1, Morality is caused by nature – nativist ~

2, Morality is caused by nurture – empiricist > from experience and observation ~

3, Rationalism – children decide > relativism approach ~

4, Sociocentric – no point of reference for morality other than interdependent social perceptions ~

All of these may play a role in the development of morality but current studies prove that the core of all morality starts at an innate intuitive level, a moral predisposition in humans. Scientific studies now prove that morality is something other than rationalism. We must understand other factors which can and do effect moral perception. The Bible warns about “false religion”. All false religion perverts morality to one extent or another. In paganism the social environment may be plagued with “taboos” and “superstition”. All superstition falls under “spiritual distortion and perversion”. ~

Again, the Bible teaches that all humans have been given what we might call “innate moral intuitions”. So true morality is not just self-constructed. I will post more papers on the true understanding of MORALITY as we proceed. I hope that this short paper has placed some subjects for thinking in your mind as we proceed in our SOCT studies. Since the public appearance of “The Church of God ~ Speaking to the Remnant” on October 7th 2011 we have been challenging the prevailing Christian paradigm….pointing people back to TRUE CHRISTIANITY. ~

Please continue your studies here at COGSR/SOCT….thanks!

E.W.King


   

Prophet Eric WKing calls the entire world to
Repent and accept Jesus Christ and the fullness of His gospel
_____________________________________

All people of this planet, I invite you to meet Jesus Christ through His gospel. Come with an open mind to the Savior of this planet. Come and learn of our Great Creator of all that is and ever shall be. The great Plan of Salvation has been presented to all of us. We are all children floating on this great ball in space called planet Earth. Our Heavenly Father put us here for a reason. We are to learn, grow and mature into the quality of our Heavenly Father’s character. ~

We all do bad things and make bad decisions and this is all part of the process. When we fall short…when we lie, cheat, still, talk bad about another, hurt others, cuss and are rude…we need to be forgiven. By coming to Earth we have all been given Free Agency. We have the right to make our own decisions. We thus are responsible for our own sins and not those of Adam and Eve. ~

Only Heavenly Father through the Atonement of Jesus Christ can wash your slate clean and cleanse you of ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. ~

All Humans have a spirit. Your spirit is currently operating in a physical body on Earth. This Earth is our school where we must come to God by faith through the person of Jesus Christ. This decision cannot, nor ever will, be forced on us. We must use our free agency responsibly and choose Jesus Christ in order for our spirits, at the time of death, to go back home and live with our Heavenly Father again. Our Heavenly Father has sent us here, to school because He loves us and wants us to grow and learn. ~

Jesus Christ was chosen and foreordained to be our Savior. When Jesus was here on Earth He taught: “I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me…And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:38-40) ~

My prayer is that you read the gospel message as found in the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon. These books were written as men were moved by the Holy Spirit and the words which these books contain are the spiritual food that will nourish your soul unto salvation. When Heavenly Father calls people He calls them through His word in a powerful way. He; “…hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1stPeter 2:9) ~

So many people feel an emptiness inside yet they keep on with their current routine in life. This makes no sense. You must “repent”. Repent literally means, TURN AROUND. Look up and see Jesus Christ for who He truly is and then begin to read His word and put faith in Him. Without faith it is impossible to accept Him as your savior. Jesus says unto us all: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28) ~

We are instructed: “Yea, even that ye would have so much faith as even to planet the word in your hearts, that ye may try the experiment of its goodness.” (Alma 34:4) Though this world gets very dark sometimes God has not given up on us. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever should believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) ~

By reading this and hearing this great invitation it is important to take it seriously. The gospel call has been given to you and now you must decide. My prayer is that you will be willing to investigate the words of Jesus Christ and begin to put just a small amount of faith and hope in what He says. God is faithful and by whom ye are being “called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:9) ~

May our Lord continue to show mercy to you whatever your decision is. May you find Jesus Christ. May you follow Him as a child follows the parent. May you find in Him and gain peace profound. ~


~Prophet Eric William King (December 17th 2016)
