Morality is a poor partner of Christianity;

The Wrong Battlefield for Righteousness.

1. Morality originates from man corporeal.
    Flesh is mortal. "Moral" is not eternal. Moral code is assembled & re-assembled by men, borrowing from fragments in mixed sources & proportion.

2. Morality is subject to cultural parameters.
    If a culture favors a life for a life, than the moral response is to execute the murderer. However, if in another time or place cultural norms are strongly against death as penalty, the moral thing to do will be to take no life. Morals and ethics can be conformed to this world, but the Word of God remains the same forever.

3. Morality is falsely associated with doctrine from the Bible.
    English Bible translations which have included the word form, "morality," have derived this use, rather than holding with source meaning in translation. As example: Does pornography have to do with sexual immorality, or more so with sexual misuse & corruption?

4. Morality lacks the power and hope that is in Christ.
    Nothing within the vaults of morality can please God, or bring us closer to Him. When moral codes include the preservation of self-interests, they set the adherent at distance from the genuine Love of God.

5. Morality displaces Christ, rather than being conformed to Him.
    By the thousands, people substitute moral conduct for the power of God's Holy Spirit, cooperating with a religious philosophy that touts social principles alongside a veiled sex deity. A person employing morality in life may follow to conclude, "I am a good person." Morality obscures perfection, redefines sin, suppresses the import of thought or intent, abrogates dependence upon God, amends to the Law and will of God.

6. Morality and Christ have unlike modes and visions.
    Pray that the Church will cease from all efforts to marry these two.
