Dave: Nazis did not have good morality – they did evil.
Jeff: Last time we pointed out that morals come from God – There are standards
all humans must conform to – and those standards have to come from
Dave: To help us think about this, picture it the other way around. What if there
was no God –
Jeff: and therefore, no objective moral standard. Our sense of right and wrong
would only come from ourselves.
Dave: If humans alone produce the standard for right and wrong – then who is to
say that one human’s standard is worse than another’s?
Jeff: If we reject God’s existence then we have to say: the Nazi’s weren’t wrong.
What they did was acceptable.
Dave: In fact, someone could legitimately say, “I think the Nazi’s didn’t go far
enough. We have to kill more people, without reason.”
Jeff: No objective morals, really does mean NO MORALS.
Dave: It’s ludicrous because we know those things are wrong.
Jeff: We know an absolute moral standard exists, and it comes from someone
other than humanity. It has to come from God.
