The existence of law serves the purpose of keeping things orderly. There needs to be law which answers the questions and points the way because if not, what would be the authority to solve questions? Now, don’t say that men can decide because if you say that, everyone would be judged by everyone else. People would bind their different views upon others and chaos would prevail. None could say that the other is wrong because each person would be a law to themselves. But if there is law, that law isn’t a person, it is the law; the higher authority and through men have differing attitudes, all must adhere to the higher authority (Roman 13:1-2).
Which brings us to what we want to teach you today. The Bible is declared to be the word of God. If that is true, which we believe it is, that would mean that mankind should consult with its teachings when deciding or seeking counsel (Psalm 119:105, 111:7-8; Proverbs 6:23). If men will live by the Bible, the issues we face as a people would disappear. There would be no abortion or gay marriage debate, no IRS scandal, no guy revealing secret information and hiding in a airport in Russia. It is a shame that our nation has disregarded the Bible and looks to the Supreme Court justices to decide marriage! Men cannot do that! Marriage has been decided by God since the beginning of time and what God has joined together, let not men put asunder! (Matthew 19:4-6). Think about what we are saying; this land need to return to respect and obedience of the scriptures.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
