There were no such problems when God created us and gave us a beautiful world to live on. We decided that wasn't good enough and chose to follow Satan instead. You can clearly see the result. The bible is not only a source of morals. It is mankind's only hope, to be returned to our original state.

Bibi Originally Answered: Bible of freemasons, KJV vs Morals and Dogma?
Morals and Dogma is a book written by a Freemason that has nothing at all to do with the fraternity; it's a book that used to be a reference for an appendant body. Freemasonry has never ever used ANYTHING as their Bible, because Freemasonry is a social fraternity, not a religion. You're misunderstanding why a book of holy writing would be in a Masonic Lodge. In Freemasons for Dummies, author Chris Hodapp says it best: "...All regular, well-governed lodges must have a book considered sacred to its members open on the lodge altar during meetings. Depending on what part of the world the lodge is in and the beliefs of the lodge's members, this sacred book could be the Bible, the Hebrew Tanach, the Muslim Koran, the Hindu Veda, the Zoroastrian Zend-Avesta, or the Proverbs of Confucius. It's simply referred to as the Volume of Sacred Law, as a nonsectarian term..." When Freemasonry switched over from a operative guild to a social fraternity (the generally recognized year this happened is 1717 AD), and rituals were adopted (including the use of Robert's Rules of Order), the custom was to have a Volume of Sacred Law present to remind the members that nothing should be undertaken without the blessing of Deity; and that truly great works are guided - not by man - but by a Supreme Architect. Customs became codified, and for hundreds of years the fraternity has had a Volume of Sacred Law opened when Lodge is open. Morals and Dogma is a text written by Albert Pike, and relates only to the Scottish Rite (which is French, but that's a whole 'nother story). It has nothing at all to do with a Blue Lodge. The book itself has been set aside, and most Scottish Rite Masons read from A Bridge To Light by Rex Hutchins. Most modern Scottish Rite Masons nowadays haven't even read M&D. The only people who reference the book are usually crackpots looking to "expose" something. NOTES: - Morals and Dogma is not "one man's opinions," it was a work created to rectify the many degrees offered by the Scottish Rite into a single, concise book. The answerer who stated that is NOT a Mason. - The Holy Bible is NOT "central to Every Lodge." The answerer who stated that is NOT a Mason. - Everything in Masonry does NOT "center around the Bible." The answerer who stated that is NOT a Mason. - The Holy Bible has NOT "been used in Every Lodge since the beginning of Freemasonry." The answerer who stated that is NOT a Mason. - Masons do NOT consider Morals and Dogma "pretty silly." It's a work created by a very smart man who made a lasting impression on the Craft. The answerer who stated that is NOT a Mason.

If an air condition instruction book is a source of knowledge on how to use an air condition for cooling, it is unable to solve the problems of people who are not willing to learn to follow its instructions. When Jesus said "Love God and neighbors as yourself", He is implying that "yourself" is the prime source of wisdom to know what is morally good. The bible is primarily guiding and motivating us to seek and use our sense of goodness.

Morals don't solve problems and neither do ethical codes. I don't understand why you'd ever believe otherwise. The existence of one or many laws does not ensure that they are obeyed.

How can something written 3,000-2,000 years ago, solve problems in 2016??? I can't even begin to understand that. Jesus telling us to love each other doesn't solve any issues we are dealing with today.

Well, the Bible is a source of IDEAS about morals. It's up to the readers to apply those ideas to modern problems. And since the Bible is a collection of excerpts from about a thousand years of arguments, many of them over morals, the results depend a great deal on which ideas the reader chooses. But that should be obvious: for instance, one part of the Bible said that adultery could be solved by stoning adulterers to death, but another part suggests that people who aren't perfect should keep their stones to themselves and ends in instructing an adulterer simply to "go, and sin no more."
