A Lawless People, A Lawless Government, A Lawless Society

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  How is everyone doing?  I pray that this blog finds everyone in good health and spirits.  Everything is going good out here on the road.  Orientation class went smooth and so did lead driver class.  I have now been on the road for a week as a lead driver.  Well, I don't have a student yet, but should have one in a couple of days.  Actually, they do have one assigned to me, I just have to be routed by San Antonio, TX to pick him up.  I am currently in Laredo, TX waiting on another load and getting some much needed rest.  I have been running pretty good as a solo driver and have been given a brand new 2015 Freightliner Cascadia.

What I want to blog about today is lawlessness.  Society today tells us that lawlessness is good and promotes lawlessness.  We see it in our elected officials, on immigration, and we see people look at criminals as good guys and criminalize police officers.  We can look at history and the Bible and see that this is bad for our country and society.  The fact is that no lawless society can remain free.  The founding fathers have said that a government is a necessary evil for this very reason.  Without government and law, people can never be free.  The Bible tells us that unless government makes a law that goes against God, we must follow government law (Acts 5:27-29, Romans 13:1-14).  But in the United States, government also has a law it must follow too, doesn't it?  That law is the Constitution and it is the law of the land.  So it boggles my mind as to why people love lawlessness.  Why do we want to reward those who break the law?  Why do we re-elect people who break the law?  Why do we side with criminals and tie the hands of law enforcement officers? Why do we let people get away with lying and cheating? Is it human nature?  Should we just get rid of all laws and let everyone protect their own homes and family?  Where is the freedom in that?  If we are to remain a free society, we must really rethink things.  If we disagree with a law or with the Constitution, we should work to change it in the proper way, and it is OK to speak out against a law.  But until it is changed, we must follow the law ... unless a particular law goes against God.  Lets stop promoting lawlessness and lets stop supporting those (elected, immigrants, and criminals) who break the law.

I pray that this blog has been a blessing to you.  Take care and God Bless.
