Leviticus 24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.
Right or Wrong. Or better stated, who’s right and who’s wrong? This has been and age old question on a variety of topics. Sometimes it can be a matter of personal preference. Who is right or wrong when it comes to eggs scrambled, over easy, poached, or no eggs at all? It really only matters to the person making that choice. It affects no one else but them. (Well, and maybe the chicken. However, you get the idea.) Yet in life there are some issues that demand a right or wrong verdict. Our courtrooms today are full of cases where two opinions collide and a final decision must be made. Who, or what is right?
Some have made the claim that the Old Testament is a Jewish book. It’s a book written for the Jewish people only. However today’s verse shares that God is a God of everyone. That Equal laws of protection, and where need be a punishment, are afforded to all mankind. If someone will respect and obey the laws and live in accordance to them, they will be protected by those given the charge of enforcing these same laws. However, if a person chooses to live outside of the laws and breaks those laws, they forfeit all the rights of protection and privilege. Their own actions condemn them and a just punishment is then handed down based upon the laws broken. Whether governments want to admit it or not, most have taken the law of the Lord for the basis of their Legal system. God’s Word is our Consistent Rule of order in life.
Some will read God’s word as a book filled with rules and punishments. Others read it as a guideline to life and God’s promise of protection. I guess that would depend on which side of God’s outline for life, you choose to want to live on.
Is God’s Consistent Ruling ever wrong?
