Laws & justice

Our society is steeped in a culture of death. In the last 40 years, 56 million innocent lives were taken by a law written by man that allows the killing of the most vulnerable in our United States — the unborn. The evening news is filled with killings and violence. Video games and TV viewing is more of the same. We are becoming callous to killing and death as these are our steady diet, and we are accepting this as status quo.

The controversy over gun laws and placing guns in schools rages on. When will the killing stop? Will more laws be the answer? If this were so, our prisons would not be filled and more would not be built.

Morality cannot be legislated. Morality comes from a conscience that defines right and wrong behavior. Man's spirit must be reached by the spirit of the law. Justice and mercy tender the spirit of the law.

Where is this spirit of the law to be found? It's found in basic laws and written in the Ten Commandments.

Laws are rules for good behavior, discipline upon which a sound education can be formed. Let's get back to basics.
