"For evil to succeed, all it needs is for good men to do nothing." – Sir Edmund Burke
Increasingly our culture is being pushed to accept all ideas and lifestyles as valid. However, absolute truth is an inconvenient hurdle for “the new moral code” of self-fulfilment.
New international research shows the heart of the problem. In their book, ‘Good Faith’ David Kinnaman & Gabe Lyons have discovered six foundational statements of the new moral code. These are six “lies” leading to dissatisfaction and dead-ends, as opposed to God’s plan which leads to flourishing for us as individuals and for our whole society.
To find yourself, look within yourself
To find yourself, look to the Truth found in Jesus
People should not criticise someone else’s life choices
Loving others does not always mean staying silent
To be fulfilled in life, pursue the things you desire most
Joy isn’t found in pursuing our own desires but in giving of ourselves to bless others
Enjoying yourself is the highest goal in life
The highest goal in life is giving glory to God
You can believe what you want as long as it doesn’t affect society
God gives you freedom to believe what you want but it does affect society
Any kind of sexual expression between two consenting adults is fine
God designed boundaries for sex and sexuality in order for humans to flourish
