Quite right. God is the ultimate authority for right and wrong. Otherwise, laws are simply arbitrary enforceable by those with the most power for their own personal desires.

A good example is murder- why is it wrong? Either God says its wrong or it really doesn't matter who kills who and why.

Example: If you were to say murder was wrong (and left God out of the picture), what ultimate authority could you point to say that I or anywone couldn't kill you simply because we felt like it?

Ultimately then, moral absolutes descend from God or all you have is anarchy as your absolute.
