Gravity is what it is . God is who he is. He is made of pure righteousness and holiness. He does not "decide" to act righteously , he acts according to his of "orange" then moral facts would be orangy , and this would be entirely consistent.
If these sweeping claims were true then wouldn't everyone on the planet be christians in the km model? All our problems would be solved and no one in their right mind would go against the word of this God.
Alas , this is not the case, and the only thing that is becoming apparent (through the application of modern science-especially quantum), is that we know less about God and It's nature than we thought we did.
I contend that there are two ways to discover the nature of the universe ,(ie.the nature of "God" )-
1. Through direct experience.
2. Scientifically via the process of elimination.
Of course there are other ways to gain information,(books,stories,etc.), about the nature of reality, but these can often be partially if not totally be false,(as has be proven time and again throughout history).
