The Reality of Moral Law

Martin Luther King Jr. said, “The first principle of value that we need to rediscover is this: that all reality hinges on moral foundations. In other words, that this is a moral universe, and that there are moral laws of the universe just as abiding as the physical laws.”

Raping babies is more than a cultural convention that changes as our culture changes. It’s also more than our biological conditioning. Rape is a transgression that doesn’t depend on culture or the way we feel about it. In our heart, we know that it is objectively wrong.

Our conscience is an alarm system. It not only tells us that rape feels wrong, it alerts us to the objective reality that rape is unchangeably and universally wrong! It violates moral law that transcends our feelings.
