Zero the point of reference

Zero is the integer denoted 0 that, when used as a counting number, means that no objects are present. It is the only integer (and, in fact, the only real number) that is neither negative nor positive. A number which is not zero is said to be nonzero.

Morality has negative values as much as positive values. When stealing, killing, destroying, etc, it is said these are negative values. In the other hand, love, truth, joy, etc are positive values in the moral spectrum. But what it is interesting, it is the point of reference. What delimits what is negative and what is positive? 0 is the delimiter of negative and positive numbers . Zero is not negative or positive but rather the point of reference. Without zero there would be no way to have a standard way to distinguish negative from positive numbers. In the same way, God is the point of reference for morality. The amazing part about it, it is that each of us know in our conscious what is right or wrong. But as time passes and each of us is expose to life’s sufferings, the conscious becomes less and less clear(See here for more information on the Second Law of Thermodynamics).

1 Timothy 4:2

These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead.

But be joyful! Jesus overcame death to step into your heart and destroy decay. Immorality is destroyed and the spirit of God resides in your heart. Surrender everything to God and experience rebirth of your soul.

1 Corinthians 15:55-57

O death, where is your victory?

O death, where is your sting?

For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power.

But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
