Basic Biblical Teachings for the Godly and Moral Life: 1


CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

BASIC BIBLICAL TEACHINGS FOR

THE GODLY AND MORAL LIFE: 1

Guest writer the Rev. Monte W. Holland

For some time, my husband, Monte, has been concerned about today’s young generation and the ethical behavior, which they are exposed to in today’s society. He sees the inconsistencies in what they experience in society and what is taught by Biblical Scripture, where lessons on “The Godly, Moral Life,” are presented.
As a step in counteracting society’s UnGodly, Immoral life lessons, he developed a series of six lessons, one for each week in Lent, beginning today, Ash Wednesday. Each lesson is divided into seven daily sections. Below is an introduction for the first week, and a link to its entire writings, hosted by the Open Hands Ministry site. Open Hands is a ministry of the United Methodist Churches in the Ligonier, PA, area, which provides layettes for WIC babies in Westmoreland County, and operates second-hand clothing and furnishings stores in Stahlstown and Jeannette.

Introduction- In this day and age, as it was in years past, many people live without an adequate knowledge of basic Godly and moral principles as taught in the Bible. Today, more than ever, individuals in public and private life are pushing the bounds of their life choices beyond traditional moral standards. On the other hand, we are not talking about going back to the “good old days.” Frankly, they may not have been all that good.
     The first assumption is this: many persons push moral bounds because they haven’t learned anything different.
     A second assumption is: Biblical teachings about the Godly and moral life are solid standards to live by, and will guide us toward the highest quality of living that we can reach. Some detractors say that such teachings keep us from “having fun.” Not so! To the contrary, these teachings lead us to living in a way that is most fulfilling and leads to real joy and “fun,” in the best sense.
     This study is not about doctrine or what one believes about details of the nature and worship of God. It is based on the assumption that (to continue reading click on www.methodists-care.org or cut and paste this address in the search engine on your computer, and click on “online study.”
