Is God the Source of Moral Law or Do Moral Truths Transcend Him? (Video)

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Cold case detective, J. Warner Wallace, answers questions following a presentation at Ohio State University. Thousands of years ago, Socrates posed an objection to Euthyphro (often new referred to as the “Euthyphro dilemma”): Is God the source of moral law or do moral truths transcend Him? If God is the source of moral truth, does this mean he can change them whenever He wants? If God is simply acknowledging and affirming the truth of moral laws, why do we need Him as their source? Be sure to check out Eric Chabot’s ministry on the campus of Ohio State.
