The issue of legality could be overly stretched out. People make the mistake of thinking that what is legal is ultimately what is moral. To lay the foundation, I will define both terms. The Free Dictionary defines legality as “Adherence to or observance of the law” and morality as “The quality of being in accord with standards of right or good conduct.” Only the person with a perfect conduct or ability to keep the law can set the rudiments for good conduct. Thence comes God. When there is no law against or for something, there is no talking about legality, for legality only comes when there is a law. There was no law that established slavery, Apartheid or racism. Until the time that there was a law, that was the time that slavery, Apartheid and racism would be judged as fulfilling or lacking legality. However, I do agree that the fact that there is no law that prohibits or allows an act does not mean that that thing is moral.
This begs the question then "what about the definition of sin which is breaking the law?" John said: “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law (I John 3:4).” Like I said before, once the law is the law of man, it cannot serve as the foundation for morality because the law of man is not perfect. Euthanasia is legal, but it is immoral because God does not promote assisted killing. Permit me to restate Romans 7:7 again.
