The Divine Law
All laws, whether they govern man's attitude on administering the well being of society, the economics of a country, the health of a nation and individuals, or how we deal with our enemies, friend or foe, comes from one source: God. That being said, when ever we stray away from God's law, we in turn, turn away from God. But if we live by the law, and obey his commandments, we in turn bless God and show obedience to God. In Proverbs, it says, "Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye." Our beloved country, the United States, was built upon the principles and ideas of the Christian faith. Our founding fathers knew that this country would only work if we built our laws upon the laws of the Bible. However, the leaders of today no longer acknowledge that, and in fact, they try to claim that this country was built for all faiths. This is simply not true. The United States Supeme Court has even claimed that this was a Christian Nation. As a result of turning away from God's law, our country is in distress. We are in a recession, the value of the dollar is not strong as it once was, illegal aliens are running rampant, and we have become apologetic of our proud European past. So what is the answer, Read 2 Chronicles 7:14 for the answer. Until then.
