On the Law of God

   
By Metropolitan Philaret of New York, First-Hierarch of The Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia

“Of all the creatures on earth, only man has an understanding of morality. Every person is aware that one’s actions are either good or bad, kind or evil, morally positive or morally negative (immoral). By these concepts of morality, man differs immeasurably from all animals. Animals behave according to their natural characteristics or else, if they have been trained, in the way they are taught. They have, however, no concept of morality-immorality, and so their behavior cannot be examined from the point of view of moral awareness. By what means does one distinguish between the morally good and the morally bad? This differentiation is made by means of a special moral law given to man by God. This moral law, this voice of God in man’s soul is felt in the depth of our consciousness: it is called conscience. This conscience is the basis of the morality common to man. A person who does not listen to his conscience, but stifles it, suppresses its voice with falseness and the darkness of stubborn sin, is often called unconscionable. The Word of God refers to such stubborn sinners as people with a ‘seared’ conscience (see I Tim. 4:2). Their spiritual condition is extremely dangerous and can be ruinous for the soul.”
—“CHAPTER 1: CONSCIENCE AND MORAL RESPONSIBILITY”
