A real Christian accepts Jesus Christ as the ultimate standard of right and wrong.

Jesus told Pilate in John 18:37: “All who love the truth recognize that what I say is true.”

Paul says in Acts 17:31: “He (God) has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man (Jesus) He has appointed, and He proved to everyone Who this is by raising Him from the dead.”

Jesus is the eternal standard of right and wrong.  He says in John 14:6: “I am the way, the truth, and the life.   No one can come to the Father except through Me.”  

Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”   His moral values don’t change.

And Jesus is not an imaginary friend in individual minds to accommodate personal preferences.   There is a literal, historical Jesus revealed clearly in the Bible.

John writes in John 20:31: “These are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in Him you will have life by the power of His name.” 

The way you get to know the real Jesus is by studying the Bible.

Jesus prayed for us in John 17:17: “Make them holy by Your truth; teach them Your word, which is truth.”

Jesus says in John 14:15: “If you love Me, obey My commandments.”

Writer Jeffrey Ramey says it well: “Who decides what is right and wrong in the world?   Who has the authority to define morality for all of creation?   It is not the courts, congress, the media, public opinion, the ‘politically correct’ police, the ‘tolerance’ brigade, or even the church.   The only answer has been, is and always will be Jesus Christ.   You can find His opinion on a great variety of subjects in His bestseller, The Bible.”
