The questions are based on the material from the “What Is Morality?” worksheet.

  1. What defines morality in the imaginary world shown in the video?
  2. What are the strengths of that way of defining morality?
  3. What are the weaknesses?
  4. Optional: How does the statement “The government always defines morality” contradict itself?  (Hint: What about a government that disagrees with that statement and says something else should define morality?)
  5. Optional: How does the statement “The majority vote always defines morality” contradict itself?  (Hint: If you took a vote to determine whether that statement should be true, would the result always be the same?)
  6. In what ways is God similar to the government in the way He defines morality?  Give at least one Bible passage to support your answer.  Either summarize the passage in your own words or copy down at least one verse in the passage.  Explain why the passage supports your answer.
