The Law

There has been a lot of news about various laws percolating through the American consciousness. This is something I’ve written about before, and it seems like it’s time to cover it again.

Laws don’t save people. Just ask Moses.

Every law with a righteous intent can be used for unrighteous purposes. An example I’ve used before is about posting the Ten Commandments in a city park. One person complains, and the mandate comes down about separation of church and state, and the monument has to be removed. Make a law permitting it to stay, and the equal protection clause allows every religion to post a monument of their own.

The only way to get people to act righteously is to change their heart. Sure, you can make laws about anything you want, but as long as there are laws there will be lawbreakers. You’ve probably heard it said, “You can’t legislate morality.” In a way that’s true, but not entirely.

As long as someone hates, there will be violence and murder. It can be contained, and that’s why there are laws against violence and murder, but remember there are people who won’t be bothered by those laws. If they think they can get away with it, they’ll try it. There are others who, in the heat of passion, will kill anyway.

The only way to stop that is to give them a regenerate heart.

There’s only one way to do that, and it’s through Jesus - the Christ.

This Is It

One of the verses most-often quoted is John 3:16. IMHO, it's criminal to separate that from John 3:17. In my reading this morning from Warren Wiersbe's exposition on Isaiah, he explains. God loves bot
