A young girl falls into a lion’s pit at the zoo. Within minutes a hungry male would have devoured her in seconds, treating her like a happy meal.
The lion was shot, killed, and the girl spared. Why was it ‘ethical’ to save the girl over the lion?
The same lion was in the prairie. A pack of hyenas killed a deer and was run off by the lion who stole their prey and ate their lunch.
Was is it then ‘ethical’ for the lion to act as he did?
Now then, here’s a clue. Without God in the conversation, there is no ethic. There is no right or wrong, for it would have been equally right to kill the girl in the pen, as to allow the lion to have his way with her as bystanders watched in horror.
Why is it ‘ethical’ for the lion to steal and kill the deer, yet unethical to kill and eat the girl?
Without God and His created order, the conversation is over.
