For the sake of peace, security, and unity in our world
where terror reigns, where hatred and disunity grip the various religions, and
where ethic displeasure is rife, is it not better, and is it not a godly
thing, to drop all religious differences and unite as one with our
governments, and to accept their laws that seek to bring us together, even
though these laws may be opposed to biblical laws?
It is with a very sad heart that questions like this are
answered, for this question presupposes that the path to unity, peace, and
security among mankind, is based on everyone accepting laws by governments
which are geared to that objective.
While it is true that governments seek to bring
peace and security in society, the question is, will human laws bring about
peace, security, and happiness? This question has already been tested
and answered convincingly. The six thousand years of humanity's
existence upon this earth have resolutely shown that human laws do not always bring
peace and security, nor unity. History shows that human laws often bring
terror, disunity, dissatisfaction, disaffection, sickness, and death. We
promote drugs, and death and sickness result; we make laws, and people are
marginalized, imprisoned, and depreciated. Much of our legislation,
instead of enhancing, it impoverishes, and excludes many. Sometimes our human laws
instead of making us moral and pure, make us immoral and impure.
Friends, there is only one way that humanity can have security, peace, and
happiness. This way is found in the Word of God. God is the Father
of all men, and He knows best how to bring peace and security among men.
And He has told us clearly how to achieve it, but we stubbornly reject His
counsel for our own laws and devising. Here for example is what He says:
(John 12:32 KJV) "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all
men unto me."
And again He says to us:
(Isa 45:22 KJV) "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the
earth: for I am God, and there is none else."
Men, nations, and governments sometimes seek to make themselves gods to control and
regulate society in their own ways. And in so doing they flagrantly
reject the laws of God, their Father, which can only bring the peace and
security they seek for. Many men feel that in order to wisely govern society
they need to look to
their own studies and experiments, and researches, and pay little attention to
what their heavenly Father says. By their own studies they seek to
enhance society. However, because man is sinful and has rejected the
cure for sin offered by his God, he will continue to fail. Peace and
security will forever be an elusive dream. Concerning wisdom for
righteous government here is what the Bible says:
(Psa 111:10 KJV) "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good
understanding have all they that do his commandments."
And again God says:
(Job 28:28 KJV) "And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that
is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding."
These texts tell us, friends, that the only way to peace and security and
unity is through God and His laws which lead us from evil. When man
passes laws that are contrary to God's laws, then instead of bringing peace
and security, he will reap terror, tears, no tomorrows, for he will destroy
himself. Therefore, while Christians seek to obey their governments,
they give priority to God's laws first and
foremost when human laws conflict with God's laws, for it is God's laws that will guarantee our survival.
May God give us the wisdom to know the difference between seeking to unite
mankind, and seeking to reject God and His laws. God bless.
