“The ultimate question is whether the doctrine of the goodness of God or that of the inerrancy of Scriptures is to prevail when they conflict. I think the doctrine of the goodness of God is the more certain of the two … To this some will reply ‘ah, but we are fallen and don’t recognize good when we see it.’ But God Himself does not say that we are as fallen as all that. He constantly, in Scripture, appeals to our conscience: ‘Why do ye not of yourselves judge what is right?’ — ‘What fault hath my people found in me?’ And so on…Things are not good because God commands them; God commands certain things because he sees them to be good. (In other words, the Divine Will is the obedient servant to the Divine Reason.)”
C.S. Lewis Collected Letters, Volume 3, p. 1437.
Most agree One who calls themselves God must be good. We can’t always determine what goodness is according to God by reading the Bible. Literature requires interpretation and scholar who respect Scriptures don’t agree God through the Bible for example condemns gays. Many argue homosexuality isn’t natural but that is your perspective. Your gay friends will tell you they can’t any more chose who they love than straights can. Are we playing God by using our moral consciences to determine what is good? That is the way God made us. When the least bit of doubt exists, shouldn’t we treat others like we want to be treated if having the same non-choices? I know, I know, pedophiles say they have no choice. Well, such relationships aren’t consensual and clearly violate the rights of others.
