    Are things moral because God says so, or does God say so because they're moral?

    Discuss?

    Well, accoding to His Word the Lord made everything. Here are just two verses that show this:

    Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
    Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    So, if the Lord made everything then what is moral is because God made them so.

    From the modern preacher teaching from the 'Word of God' to the ancient priest sacrificing his brethren as an army of paid thugs enforce his revelations of Gods will, morality has ALWAYS been the whim of those in the power position of interpreting what the will of 'God' is.

    Morality, like the use of an angry or benevolent 'God' to keep the sheeple in line, is strictly an invention of man.

    Ask any member of Jonestown when you see them in heaven.

    They are,

    or they aren't.

    God is the Good, the protector, the Brains of the Operation;

    Satan is the hate, the divisions that make the peace untenable.

    It's a long road, to see on down a couple of miles,

    to the place where you'd have to shimmy up to your own worst fears AND deal with 'em.

    fuck. <sigh>

    They didn't go to heaven.

    They followed a false prophet,

    and believed that DEATH was better than life.

    Fuktards.

    If you can PROVE that, I will follow whatever morality you subscribe to. In the meantime, your opinion is worth no more than mine or anyone else.

    Good luck.
