At the early age of nine, I felt a “calling” to the gospel ministry of Christ. After graduating high school in Alexandria, Louisiana, I obtained four degrees, Bachelor Degree in Theology. B.S. degree in English, M. Ed. In Education Leadership and an Ed. D. in Education Leadership. I taught English classes in public schools and parochial schools and was also principal of public high schools and parochial schools. During this time, I pastored many churches, and would later go into full-time ministry and travel internationally in the service of the Lord.
The way we live, our behavior and the way we respond when people treat us, the judgements we make when other people are mistreated, these things reveal what we really believe about right and wrong. This is not to say that something is wrong just because everyone agrees it is wrong. There is a logical possibility that we are mistaken and it is just our cultural conditioning that tells us these things are wrong. It is logical to conclude that there must be an absolute after all, one that transcends cultural conditioning. Otherwise, how do we establish and enforce laws, teach our children, etc? For each generation to start over and decide it’s own definitions would be chaotic at best.
Christians believe that if objective principles of right and wrong exist, there must be a foundation for them. And the foundation that makes the most sense is the character of a perfect and holy God who provides sure, unwavering, guidelines for social interaction. Christians do, however, also believe this God is loving and caring enough to provide a guide, the Holy Spirit, which will help them carry out the principles in their daily lives.
