The Truth About…Law (Part 3)

Let’s continue to examine law, but this time from other views that aren’t biblical.  If we will not listen to God when it comes to standards of societal conduct, then we are left with 2 options–either we, the governed decide, or the government itself decides, apart from the will of the people.

The Truth About…Law (Part 1)

This month the blog’s focus will be on a Christian worldview of law.  What is meant by “law”?  By definition, it is the rules of conduct for people.  Even though we may not want to admit it, having laws is good, since moral relativism leads to chaos.  If everyone does whatever they want, anarchy will begin. There are two basic [&hellip

This month’s blogs continue to focus on a biblical understanding of God’s design of societal institutions like the family, church and state.
