Morality is strictly defined by the Torah, and the rest of the old testament including all the old prophets, Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon and all of the New Testament too.
We have to have the mind of Christ by being born again to know how to apply the biblical principals in every part of our lives.
For instance the old testament had the opinion that you stone to death the adulterer but Jesus said "who ever has not sinned let him be the first to cast the stone" and He said when someone slaps you on your right cheek you give them the left cheek as well.
Bless those who curse you, do good to those who do evil to you. Feed your enemies and on the cross HE said "Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing."
To be able to be like the Son Of God was on the cross is only attainable through HIS spirit. Murder is murder even if the law changes! And again I said morality and the judgment of right and wrong are clearly stated in the word of God.
I respect the theory of all of these great philosophers. John Locke was already one of my favorite men in history before I started taking these classes.
But even Mr. Locke as close as his counsel was to being nearly perfectly in line with the spirit of the Word of God still John Locke's counsel must be weighed by the scales of the bible and sifted through the measure of his statutes. God is right, we are wrong any questions?!
