Law can hurt not help society


As a Christian injury lawyer, I am acutely aware of the law’s impacts on society. Scripture indicates Satan hates all God created. This fallen angel cannot create anything, so he perverts and distorts God’s handiwork.  The law has been changing to make this even easier for him.

Since the Devil hates human life, he loves murder in all its forms. Whether in a violent assault, an abortion, suicide or euthanasia, he is pleased.  Murder rarely results in a death sentence anymore.  Abortion has been legal since the travesty of Roe v. Wade. Suicide is on the increase, and legal euthanasia (assisted suicide) seems destined to become legally accepted.

He hates God’s design of marriage as expressed in Genesis 1-3.  Clearly, it wasn’t long until the Old Testament records sinfulness like multiple wives, adultery, fornication, concubines, and divorce. Homosexual activists have two cases pending at the Supreme Court and are successfully couching their lifestyle in the language that African-American Civil Rights activists once used. Co-habitation is fast-outpacing marriage as the norm. We are now several decades into so-called “no-fault” divorce and families are suffering.  Today, according to the Federal Reserve Board's 1995 Survey of Consumer Finance, only 42 percent of children aged 14 to 18 live in a "first marriage" family--an intact two-parent married family.

He hates children. Satan encouraged false religions that actually celebrated child sacrifice on burning altars. Now, legal abortions sacrifice unwanted children on the altar of convenience.

He hates gender roles and intimacy in a Biblical marriage. The Bible states, “Male and Female He made them,” and the fight has been on ever since to either make the genders totally the same, or even create additional hybrids. This is succeeding to the extent that some schools are installing “transgendered bath rooms.”

The law has not helped much. For instance, welfare has often rewarded the wrong and punished the right. Originally, divorce or separation would sometimes remove a father from the home. By 1995, almost 60 percent of all AFDC families were headed by unmarried mothers.  Births to unwed teen mothers who were poorly educated and who had no income other than welfare was the predictable result.

This country, including our lawmakers, need to turn back to God and His Word.
