Is there a Foundation for Moral Law?

A post from my friend Glenn’s blog showing the inconsistency of the atheist world view.

Thomistic Bent

In the book True Reason: Confronting the Irrationality of the New Atheism, editors Gilson and Weitenaurr have put together a good collection of articles by competent Christian thinkers who all respond to the logical flaws of the new atheists. In the chapter titled A Sun to See By: Christianity, Meaning, and Morality, author Samuel J. Youngs gives a clear explanation of the problems that are generated when a person denies the existence of God. Problems are generated with morality, but as Youngs shows, the issues begin with more fundamental problems with deriving any meaning at all. Meaninglesseness is not an isolated position from merely a few atheists, but is an established belief in their system.

About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
