WHO IS RIGHT?

who-is-right

Proverb 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Whose morality, whose standard of what is right and wrong, good and evil should we live by? There are many different philosophies fallen men use to define right and wrong or who is right. Many Christians thinking is governed by the world’s neutered version of what is morally right and wrong. Instead of God’s precepts Christians are often influenced my worldly wisdom and the philosophies of men that seem right. Among those philosophies are:
1. Might is right (or whoever has the power and is in control).
2. My culture or group morals determines right.
3. Man is the measure of right or what “I” determine.
4. The human race is the basis of right (the many, the majority, the whole society determines what is right for the parts of society or individual).
5. Moderation is right (morality is found in moderation between two extremes).
6. What brings pleasure or feels good is right.
7. What brings the greatest good for the greatest numbers in the long run is right.
8. What is desired for its own sake is right in and of itself; good cannot only be that which is desired as opposed to what is desirable, since we often desire what is evil.
9. Right and good is indefinable (You can never really know).
10. Right is relative or varies depending on the circumstance and individual preferences.
(From Any Absolutes? Absolutely! By Normal Geislar)

Fighting for right is worth it as long as right is defined by what God says. How about this for WHO is right:
Ps 119:126 It is time for thee, Lord, to work: for they have made void thy law. 127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. 128 THEREFORE I ESTEEM THY PRECEPTS CONCERNING ALL THINGS TO BE RIGHT; I HATE EVERY FALSE WAY.

A Christian view of right is founded on God’s unchanging character, expressed by God’s will, based on God’s revelation in His Word and absolute truth.
