By what law are you governed?

Because we would not obey God’s Law, we have had to create our own laws. People and societies need to be governed, and so every country has these laws and changes them and adds to them regularly. The laws of man have legalised things which every believer in Yeshua knows to be wrong and, over time, those laws continue to erode the sanctity of life, and the freedom of religion that are the final bulwarks against totalitarianism.

It is now very difficult for Christian would-be parents to adopt, and in some EU countries, children have been taken away from Christian parents who were deemed too “restrictive” in their doctrine. Parents who reject the notion that their child is transgender also face losing that child to a system which will not pick up the pieces later when this folly-of-mind crumbles into a reality which does not live up to that child’s expectations.

Many clamour for euthanasia to be legalised without any concept of the power that takes away from patients who do not wish to receive a premature death.

Homosexuality is promoted, even by our police, and transgender ideology is now taught to children as if it is fact. It wasn’t a fact ten years ago, nor twenty years ago. But now,  according to the satanists in charge, transgenderism is a fact which requires promotion to children.

Just about everything which God says is wrong in His Law is said to be right in the law of man. And as the law of man enforces these edicts, the rights of believers are shrunk and shrunk until we have people being sued for refusing to bake a cake.

Our rights are diminished in a society which proclaims, in it’s own churches, that the Law of God is done away with! Yet we obey the laws of man daily. Obeying our rulers is doctrine, obeying God is “legalism”.

This is foolishness, because Christians expect to obey the laws of man every day and do so successfully. How much easier would it be to obey the few and precious commandments and statutes of God?!

We are told in Phillipians 4:13:

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. [KJV]

This helpful video is worth a watch on this very subject:

 

As our rulers move further and further away from the moral ground which God gave us in His Law, we, as believers must face that we will be judged on the day of judgement by our works, and not our faith:

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. Revelation 20:12-13 KJV

James warns us carefully:

Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. James 2:17-18 KJV

Let’s repent and get right with God!
