Oswald Chambers on a moral imperative – Attempts at Honesty
Every man has an imperative something within him which makes him say “I ought,” even in the most degraded specimens of humanity the “ought” is there, and the Bible tells us where it comes from—it comes from God. The modern tendency is to leave God out and make our standard what is most useful to man. The utilitarian says that these distinct laws of conduct have been evolved by man for the benefit of man—the greatest use to the greatest number. That is not the reason a thing is right; the reason a thing is right is that God is behind it. God’s “oughts” never alter; we never grow out of them. Our difficulty is that we find in ourselves this attitude—“I ought to do this, but I won’t”; “I ought to do that, but I don’t want to.” That puts out of court the idea that if you teach men what is right they will do it—they won’t; what is needed is a power which will enable a man to do what he knows is right. We may say “Oh I won’t count this time”; but every bit of moral wrong is counted by God. The moral law exerts no coercion, neither does it allow any compromise. “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all” (James 2:10). Once we realize this we see why it was necessary for Jesus Christ to come. The Redemption is the Reality which alters inability into ability.

The Condemnation in God’s Love
This series was first published in June, 2016. –ed. God’s love is a great comfort. But perhaps it’s not supposed to be as comforting as some people make it. As we saidlast time, God’s love is not a theological blanket that smothers everything else the Bible says about how He relates to us. That myopic,

The Only Means of Atonement
Our Creator is full of compassion for broken sinners. But that reality doesn’t negate or override His perfect justice. Throughout this series on divine compassion we’ve considered the compelling biblical truths of God’s mercy and forgiveness—especially how Christ revealed those divine attributes in His parable of the prodigal son. But to consider His compassion without

Death Is a Pleasant Transition
We are all stalked by an insatiable, bloodthirsty killer. This murderer never misses—he has a 100 percent success rate. Nothing can shield us from his attention; nothing can mitigate his relentless slaughter. Death itself will visit all of us. There are no scientific advances, no technological breakthroughs, and no miracle drugs that offer an escape
