Image via WikipediaI recently read some comments about the laws under which we live in this country. (And world) Some expressed the opinion that we had too many. Others said that the problem was not only the quantity, but quality of the laws.
All of this discussion got me to thinking. (You can tell I'm thinking when rust comes out of my ears and idle chatter comes out of my mouth)
I certainly agree that we have more laws than we need. There are only ten laws needed and they are found in the Bible at Exodus 20: 1-17. They are called the Ten Commandments. If all of mankind dedicated themselves to obeying these ten laws, there would be, “Peace on earth and goodwill toward men.”
We are free moral agents and each of us can make our own choices concerning these laws, but they were here in the beginning and they will be here at the end. To try to discredit or destroy them is as futile as trying to destroy an anvil with a rubber mallet.
Character, ethics, or morality is not legislated. It is embraced, and it is embraced within the context of the Ten Commandments. We are all imperfect beings and subject to failure, but the closer we live to these ten laws the closer we live to the divine purpose that God meant for our life to have.
