Law: Physical and Moral - Discussion Questions

  1. How are boundaries/laws good for us?

  2. Describe causation.  Can it be resisted?  Can you choose against a causation?

  3. What is an influence?  How is it different from a cause?

  4. Inanimate objects, animals, and people are all subject to physical laws in what ways?

  5. Through what kind of law does God govern moral beings?

  6. Just as physical laws describe the consequences of a physical action, moral laws describe how to choose that which brings about the best moral consequences.  Do all choices, good or bad, have consequences?

  7. What is a moral being?

  8. If God’s laws were “irresistible”, would they be moral or physical laws?

  9. Why does moral law address the motive of a choice, and not just the outward action itself?

  10. What do words like “ought” and “should” imply regarding our ability to choose?  What might they imply regarding our moral obligation?

  11. God in the Bible customarily uses command words such as: “shall, shall not, do, do not, obey, hear, listen, go, stop, speak, seek, believe, repent, forsake, etc.” as He commands certain outcomes to take place.  As commands from God, do these words have real meaning, and what do they imply regarding our ability to choose?

  12. Describe physical and moral laws in the creation account in Genesis 1-3.

  13. Does God have free will?  What does it mean to be made in God’s image?
