I can see where you could come to that conclusion. I, on the other hand, have a different perspective.
I see the impact of divine influence on our ABILITY to make decisions about right and wrong. Whether or not they become the law of the land or morally acceptable is society's decision. However, the individual can come to a conclusion on morality faster than it is accepted by society.
If the Creator could simply decree that everyone knew the difference between right and wrong and acted accordingly, then this discussion would be moot. However, He created us with free will. Your decision to acknowledge and follow his laws and believe in Him are your choice
