Thanks Bart!Canuckster1127 wrote:What if morality is more a focus upon a perfect person, Christ Jesus, than a perfect system or moral code?
Yes, that is my feeling…But I did not include a lot of technical stuff in my post on purpose. Concerning God’s part as the moral focus for good. I thought it was enough to say that it was God’s Law. I meant for that (along with other supporting scriptures and statements) to give the impression that His Law was his nature (who he is) and that he was the focus of the moral laws (what was right).
Sure is nice to see a direct and to the point statement, cool Bart! (While looking at B.W), I really appreciate it Bart!! (While looking at B.W), Thank-you BART!!!(While looking at B.W). Seems that B.W had the same idea first, he could of had all that thanks but Noooooo…lol
As I stated earlier, I deal with matters of the heart and when I convey a message, most often, I try my best to post something that will keep the interest of as many as possible. Not everyone is so much into precise detail. Some will understand the technical things but when trying to help people with their discussion concerning God, I try my best to reach them in the best way I know how. I have been through extreme emotional trails. I think I must have felt huge doses of just about everything a person can feel. I understand much of the heart. You tend to speak more to mans minds and I love it, you and Bart are two of the main people that drew me to this site, both completely brilliant.
I had that Newton like moral law example when I had my original post. But not everyone knows about the laws of physics so I left it out. I just felt it was better if I used examples that a good number of people could relate to. Most (even if never cheated on) will understand that cheating on someone causes the person that was cheated on great pain. And they will most likely accept that it is fair if they receive the pain they caused. And so they understand how the pain of cheating and accepting responsibility for the pain they caused could relate to causing God pain, getting the pain back and feeling that it's fair.
The things I excluded were excluded on purpose. I wanted to give the message in an easy to understand way that spoke more to the heart than the mind. And I wanted to deliver it in a way that many would understand.
As I said, I take my post very, very seriously. Many people constantly look for a way to dismiss God. I want them to have a way out if they want. So it is important to me that we don’t confuse people that seek to confuse themselves by providing them with the idea that things are confusing if they don’t need to be. I Love your post and your style but I have to take responsibility for what I post. I have to go with what I feel...J.D style…it’s the best there is.
But I think it’s awesome if you and others add your stuff, like with your first post here, that was perfect and really help reinforce the point, awesome. I have considered many things concerning this topic but I just wanted to help humblesmurph.
Thanks B.W! I will continue to think on these things and share my thoughts.
