Morality constantly evolves with new truths
August 5th 2022
Truths that have never been fully accepted in the past will be understood and made clear today, and many new truths will even be added to them. For nothing stagnates – everything changes and evolves. Jesus demonstrated this by teaching a new morality, which was not that of Moses. On several occasions in the Gospels Jesus repeats, ‘You have heard that it was said... but I say to you...’ For example, ‘You have heard it said, “You shall not kill.” But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgement.’ Or again, ‘You have heard that it was said, “You shall love your neighbour and hate your enemy.” But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you...’ As you see, the moral law taught by Jesus was no longer that of Moses. So why shouldn’t we go even further today? Christians will be scandalized because they do not want there to be anything else after Jesus; according to them, there is nothing more to be said. But Christ himself has come to add other truths because everything evolves.
