To the editor:
In response to Kyle Batson and his "moral compass," I would ask this: What empathy do you share with Hitler, Stalin and others who have murdered millions in their atheistic genocides? They knew what caused discomfort and suffering to others and delighted in it.
Mr. Batson apparently acknowledges that God exists because he calls God an "angry, invisible deity." I wish that Mr. Batson and others who hold that misconception could see how much God loves them and desires for us all to live together in that love. Unfortunately, the "moral compass" often interferes with that, as demonstrated by Hitler and Stalin, for example.
I am so glad that God provided a better way for us than an internal "moral compass," since "shared empathy" cannot save anyone (myself included) from our sinful nature and its tendency toward heinous acts. Kyle Batson and others, God loves you and gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, that if you believe in him, you will not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16-18).
