ever read the book the law by basitat? it is short and sweet. It made me think about our day. How has ‘law’ been used to commit oppression and injustice? hum that is not hard is it? Let me see, The Bundy ranch incidence? hum, Ruby incident? Waco? hum, lalalalal oh yea Policing for profit situation, you know stealing your stuff even though you have done no wrong, they just pretend you did and you must prove you didn’t. Lalalalalala, oh yea, prisons for non violent offenders where your caged like an animal because you like to eat or drink or smoke the wrong food. lalalalalala Oh I almost forgot the Katrina incident in new Orleans, where people were getting their guns and property stolen, trespassing on threats into people’s homes to see what valuables you have. Don’t forget some places actually outlawing gardens in your own yard. Where you cannot grow your own food that is also sold on the market like wheat, since it affects commerce in some way (and what activity doesn’t) because a farmer wanted to grow his own grain for his own family.
Now I thought using threats of harm to steal someones stuff or to kidnap your kids was illegal/unlawful? Am I missing something here? this is the land of Christendom right? rulers have said they are Christian right? I even heard bush say he was, so how is stealing people’s stuff or using armed people to enforce the law to steal peoples life liberty and chidren if you do something politically incorrect chrisitan? Could they perhaps just be lying?
Does God really take note of this oppression and injustice? Let him speak for himself. ISAIAH 10:1-2 shows us his feelings. “Woe to tose who enact harmful regulations who constantly draft oppressive decrees to deny the legal claim of the poor to deprieve the lowly among my people of justice making widows their spoil and fatherless children their plunder.”
Does this make it clear for you? Jehovahs laws forbids all forms of injustice “you people must not do injustice in the judgement you must not treat the lowly with partiality and you must not prefer the person of a great one.”
Disregarding that law these officials draw up their own “harmful regulations” so as to legitimize what amounts to outright theft of the cruelest kind. taking the scanty possessions of poor people isreals false gods are of course blind to the injustice but Jehovsh is not.
So what, Jehovah doesn’t exist will be the response. But why doesn’t he exist? so are you saying complex laws of nature and complexity of it all just happened without intelligent direction? Just ask a scientist how complex the dna molecule is, he will tell you. Where did our intelligence come from, our sense of justice our sense of right and wrong? Do you see morality among the animals the chimps the apes? Where did the instinctual behavior come from who programmed the dna to transmit it? Let me see, chance? Did your computer just happened by explosion of reactions of non living elements? so how long will we have to wait for justice.
So people do not misread Jehovahs patience as non interest or non existence, the bible answers that question. 2peter 3:9, Has God punished people in the past for injustice and violence? The flood, which most are familiar with was for the violence, so was Sodom and gormorroh for their sexual deviate violence (which included raping boys). Malachi reminds us that Jehovah has not changed. his feelings on the matter and purpose has not changed.
so let this be a warning to those in power, do not abuse your priveleges of service to your fellow man nor discount Jehovahs existence, Jehovah is watching and there is no partiality with him and he has promised not to allow wicked people to be around forever his patience has a limit and based on prophecy and principles of the bible that time is very close at hand.
