Video: God and Arguments from Morality by Chad A. Gross

This video features a talk I recently gave at my home church Faith Christian Fellowship entitled "God and Arguments from Morality."  In the talk, I present a version of the Moral Argument for God's existence, explain why relativism doesn't work and address some common confusions people have when discussing a universal Moral Law.

Here is a brief outline of the talk:
  • Two Types of Relativism
  • What Makes a Good Argument?
  • The Moral Argument
    • Every law has a law giver.
    • There is a Moral Law
    • Therefore, there is a Moral Law Giver
  • Confusions
    • "Cultures have different values so how can moral values be universal?"
    • "Difficult problems in morality prove that there is no universal Moral Law."
    • "Some values conflict."
    • "Morality is relative to time and culture."
  • How Does the Moral Argument Directly Relate to the Gospel?
Apologetics315 has the audio here.

Article: Seven Things You Can't Do As A Moral Relativist by Greg Koukl

In this featured article, Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason unpacks 7 things a moral relativist cannot do.  They are:

Rule #1- Relatives can't accuse others of wrong doing.

Rule #2- Relativists can't complain about the problem of evil.

Rule #3- Relativists can't place blame or accept praise.

Rule #4- Relativists can't claim that anything is unfair or unjust.

Rule #5- Relativists can't improve their morality.

Rule #6- Relativists can't hold meaningful moral discussions.

Rule #7- Relativists can't promote the obligation of tolerance.

You can check out the article here.

Can you think of anything else a relativist can't do?  Share it in the comments!

I also highly recommend the book Koukl co-authored with philosopher Francis Beckwith that deals with relativism entitled Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air.
