Are you? Would you have a problem if the mosaic civil laws were the law of land here in the United States? "Aghassst.." you'd puff and hiss..."those laws were for ancient Israel, we're more civilized people and have "better" more "righteous laws now!" Oh really? Still,my question stands, why are you afraid of God's law? Why so antinomian? The problem is you have fear of it, but you don't fear it. Remember the declaration of Romans 3:18? "There is no fear of God before their eyes." Guess what? Dr. Paul points out in the beginning of the chapter that the Jews were entrusted with the Law of God and yet they failed to Fear the God who gave the Law. "The Law is good!" That's from 1 Timothy . . . and the doctor goes on in 1 Timothy to explain that the Law is for the unrighteous. Hmm . . .for the unrighteous?
Ah . . .exactly. So if the Law is for the wicked what's the problem with our United States government using the Law, which is designed to suppress wickedness, to use it to punish evil? Why are you afraid of that? Dr. Paul says in Romans 13 3-4 "For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer."
So I ask, are you afraid of God's Law? Why should you be if you obey God's Law? Let me interject for a moment . . . no where have I said that one must keep God's law to be saved. Salvation is by grace through faith alone. Okay . . .that's settled. Time to move on.
Ever wondered why the prison populations are so high? Every wondered why the Bible doesn't mention anything about prisons? That should get your brain churning for a few minutes . . .
Do you believe that there is some sort of injustice with the Mosaic civil code? Is it too harsh? Why so much resistance? If you're not a criminal why not be for instituting God's Law as the law of the land?
Seriously, for those who resist God's Law so much, I would like to know why. What's your motive?
God's Law forever,
