David Diskin needs trusted guide — the Bible

Wes Hallmark, in responding to free-thinking David Diskin's "Everyone uses their own moral compasses," notes that feelings and emotions are a poor source of moral guidance. This is fundamentally good and sound advice.

However, Mr. Diskin promotes a self-gratifying philosophy best exemplified by the captain of a ship who is trying to bring his vessel to port on a dark and foggy night.

Unable to see the lighthouse on the shore, he orders a lantern to be placed on the bow of the ship. Satisfied that he now has a trusted guide to lead him, he proceeds to obediently follow the light, with complete confidence that he is in good hands.

Bible-believing Christians are instead guided by a lamp unto their feet, and a light unto their path, the very Word of God (Psalm 119:105). The Bible is the guide that sets our compass.

I suggest that Mr. Diskin find the proper lighthouse (John 3:16) and learn to set his life's standard accordingly. Such action on his part would go a long way to help free him from the ill-advised solipsism he so willingly espouses.
