Moral Compass20 July 2015
A compass is a simple instrument. It reads the magnetic forces of the earth and points to true north. If you get it too close to another magnet, it can give you a false reading. In the hands of a skilled scout, it can help keep you on the right path.
In the Scout Oath, the first duty is to God and we promise to be morally straight. Like the needle of a compass, our God-given morals guide us on the paths of life. There will be influences giving you false information throughout your life, but if you remain true to the morals given to you by Christ, you will not stray from the correct path.
2 Peter 2:1 Says:
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves.
