Bible Morality, Morals, Ethics, and Values:
God gave his law on Sinai, and His law is holy and just and good, but human beings are not able to obey His law. As a result, no one can earn salvation.
Salvation brings works, not the other way around. We are saved to good works; good works cannot bring salvation. Good works are a gift from God. They are, in fact, God Himself doing His work through us, and that is only available to the saved.
Because the believer has been born again into God's family, God speaks the word of faith into the heart of the believer. Then, God gives the power to believe and to discern the voice of God from other voices. God gives the power both to will and to do His good pleasure. He actually does the work--it is His grace (free gift) doing the work in the believer. Then, He rewards the believer as if the believer had done something. (some caveats about hearing God's Voice)
Salvation is free.
The law can be summed up in one word, love. So when someone commits adultery this is the opposite of love. Satan, for the sake of confusion, calls adultery love, but it is just the opposite. The same is true of envy, murder, covetousness, disrespect for parents, perversion, or any other part of God's law.
For those who have been born again, the law is being written on their hearts by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit now becomes the One who guides them and gives them power both to will and to do God's good pleasure. No one can obey God unless it is God both giving them the will do good and also doing the good works though them.
The Bible is given as an authoritative guide to the truth, and the Holy Spirit teaches us when we read the Bible, provided we ask for leading and believe that we will receive it.
In addition, the Bible gives us the order for the church and the order of the church is also given for guidance in interpreting the Bible and for understanding what is right and what is wrong
