When politicians pass laws and refuse to enforce the laws, what is a just thing to discern and change?
Two articles in the Chicago Tribune are folly rather than wisdom and discernment in my opinion.
The first is the Chicago Tribune editorial selection of Joe Biden over President Trump because they consider Biden’s forty years as a politician to be more “calming and moderate “than Trump’s sharp tongue (sword) used to make changes and proven accomplishments while in office.
The second is New York Attorney General suggestion to halt traffic stops to prevent “encounters” with police.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate a wisdom proverb about justice and a Bible verse about the need to change a system of religious beliefs in ancient times that was unjust and in need of wise discernment and “stirring up” action in order to change for the betterment of mankind.
The Excellence of Wisdom
…14Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I (Wisdom of God) have insight and strength. 15By me kings reign, and rulers enact just laws;16By me princes rule, and all nobles who govern justly..(Proverb 8:15)
Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. (Matthew 10:34-36)
What’s My Point?
The above two Bible verses cannot be explained in a brief blog post. It requires time and discernment after reading the explanations given in the Source Links below. This includes police, politicians, and the Chicago Tribune Editors.
My point is that In Chicago the number of drive by shootings is significant. If the NY Attorney General suggestion is enacted, there will be no need for police on the street to enforce the laws the politicians passed. So why not defund both police or politicians?
In My Opinion
What is happening in our contemporary times is human politicians are passing laws and not enforcing them which is an injustice to those who become victims of the lawbreakers.
What the Chicago Tribune editors who chose Biden of Trump is doing is another repeat of not understand and discerning the meanings of the above Matthew verse.
I am not comparing the human failings of President Trump is in any way to Jesus Christ.
What I am comparing is Trump’s divisive tounge and tweets as being an analogy to the sword in the verse often needed to bring about results sorely needed in our Nation. Which is basically to change the course of ineffective past politicians that pass human laws that are supposedly as wise or better than God’s laws
In other words, change was needed in ancient times as well as in our contemporary times and will be needed by future generations according to King Solomons observations 3000 years ago.
For example, we know in the USA how a human law such as slavery was unjust, yet continued for over a hundred years to be enforced by humans until the Civil War.
What we need to do in my opinion is to reduce crime in our Nation is to return to allow parents’ choice of schooling to teach God’s laws to their children to understand and discern how to live better lives.
Read the Source Links below and a Legal Beagle explanation of what it means to enforce the laws along with a previous post who to trust and why.
Should we return the same politicians to office that pass laws and do not enforce the laws they passed and then instruct the police not to enforce the law?
Also, since both police and politicians are humans instead of Gods, why is it wise to point fingers at police when they make human follies and not the politicians who passed the laws and then tell the police not to enforce the laws?
When will we voters wise up and quit trusting politicians to keep circling around and repeating the same mistakes in every generation instead of changing for the better by teaching and obeying the just laws of God?
Which if God’s laws were taught and obeyed willingly would not require the millions of laws of humans to be enforced by police or passed by politicians?
Regards and goodwill blogging.
