Question re: the role of the Bible in coming to know right from wrong.

The seventh question I want to address concerns my understanding of how we come to have moral knowledge. That is, how we come to know right from wrong. Can we only know what is right and what is wrong from the Bible? Has God given us an innate knowledge of right and wrong? Or, when we come to faith are we given a knowledge of right and wrong that comes to us supernaturally through the work of God’s Spirit? Or, is there a different view that comports better with what the Bible teaches?

Here is the audio file where I attempt to address this contention about the nature of who Jesus was/is. CLICK HERE for an audio file where I discuss my claim that Jesus was an ordinary human being who was God.
