Today, points are shared that address believers in Christ discerning the letter and the spirit for civil and divine law within the United States.  Citizens are expected to obey the law, yet, few have a complete and precise knowledge of its provisions.  The primary collection for all civil law within the United States and its territories is called The United States Code.  The United States Code presents an organized system for the general and permanent laws of the United States, and is divided by broad subjects into 51 titles (we say, volumes).  New editions of the code are published every six years with annual cumulative supplements to present the most current information.  By comparison, for many who follow Christ, the primary set of sacred laws are published as the Ten Commandments (we say, the Decalogue).  Jesus proclaimed the essential principles of the law for the Kingdom of GOD in Matthew 22: 36-40 King James Version (KJV):  36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?  37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  38 This is the first and great commandment.  39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.  Insisting upon self-defined “freedom”, while lacking a detailed and precise knowledge of all the law, many in America have fallen into the error of saying, “Live and let live” properly heard as “sin and let sin.”  Where divine law and judgment are featured, aspects of the actors, their deeds, and events such as spiritual benefit, eternal purpose, and sacred content also must come into view. Christian believers acknowledge that Deity was revealed to Moses as one who makes covenant, and who executes righteous judgment against sin, even to the third and fourth generations of those who transgress.  The sins of ones forefathers remain as conditions that challenge their offspring for as many as 160 years.  Through the ministry of Jesus Christ, divine process also is shown to include both the nonnegotiable completion of mortality (spoken of as death and sleep), and the permanent destruction (we say, second death) avoidable only through provisions for forgiveness, repentance, and the offering of Jesus as a divine incarnation.  The otherwise unanswered demands made for divine order and eternal law are affirmed and fulfilled by grace, through faith, and as righteousness.  The Savior establishes the necessary atonement, mercy, redemption, salvation, and sanctification from GOD.  The writer at “Yahoo!

Would Jesus Christ be in favor of the Sodomite Suppression Act?

A lawyer in California want to put LGBT people to death. What would Jesus do? Would he support this?

Update: *wants

Update 2: To help avoid the notion that this is a law, please understand that it’s only a “measure”. Here’s an article about it: http://www.vox.com/2015/3/22/8270411/cal...

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son:  the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.  But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.  All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him:  in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.  Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GODand not that he should return from his ways, and live?  But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned:  in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.  (Ezekiel 18:  20-24, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Divine Knowledge of Human Hurt? (03/02/2015); The American Covenant? (03/03/2015); No Mystery in Lawful Judgment (07/28/2014); Divine Law for Mankind? (07/29/2014); Separation of Church and State (07/04/2014); The Point of Wisdom? (07/05/2014); Sin Causes Death? (02/04/2014); Succession (02/05/2014); The Crux of the Matter (10/26/2012); Women Ordained to Minister? (10/27/2012)

 

“Wayf”, Christian believers may only answer your concerns by sharing sacred doctrine, or their own peculiar expression of faith in words that will be imprecise, and artificially made to appear as brief or shortened.  Nonetheless, please consider the following:

(1.)  Discipline, law and rules that apply within the Kingdom of GOD are only binding upon those who accept and acknowledge their accountability, duty, and exalted place before divinity through Jesus Christ.

(2.)  California, the United States of America, and the geopolitical nations and states upon the earth are not the Kingdom of GOD.

(3.)  Immutable and unchanging aspects of divinity have been displayed to created beings and living creatures throughout the history of this Creation.  Citizenship within the Kingdom is described somewhat by the documentation of covenants between mankind and Deity through such figures as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David.  Believers in Jesus Christ as King of Kings, Lord of Lords are “a new creation” existing to carry out and complete divine provisions for sacred revelation, judgment, salvation and sanctification upon the earth.

There is far more to be plainly said, correctly understood, and to get a proper grip upon.  (For example, (4.)  The focus for believers continues as one of proclaiming the responsiveness of GOD to repentance.  Sin upon the earth can not be eliminated using the finite human tools of computers, emotion, intellect, logic, mathematics, philosophy, politics, science, and violence.  Through Jesus Christ a door of access to divinity has been established; and mankind is not to despair despite being earth-bound, or the misery and wretchedness from the operations of sin.  Consider again Matthew 9:  12-13 King James Version (KJV):  12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.  13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice:  for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
