More on Lord of the Rings Part 3

Continuing on some of my commentary about the Mythic Truth website, today I choose morality as a topic. He has two quotes about morality:

To a man who has lost all his principles, morality is always dreadfully complicated.

Morality is not hard to know, it is hard to do.

Morality, even Christian morality, is a theme running through the Lord of the Rings. Frodo forgetting himself to save the shire he loved. Aragorn staying always aware of his one true love, even in the midst of others adoration. Gandolf’s sacrifice and presumed death to save the others. Merry and Pippins involvement in the struggle, even when others tried to deter them. I could go on, but I thin you get the point.

In an age where morality is a word that allot of people would prefer to ignore, morality refuses to be ignored. Anyone who wants to know what is right and wrong, can easily find the truth. But is it the truth we seek, or a truth we want to hear?

What would God have us do? I’ll leave you with Micah 6:8

He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.
