This Lawless Nation

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It baffles a sane mind to see this nation becoming completely lawless. But oh, you might say. Listen to all the “Law Makers” creating more and more laws, which, we once would be accurate in determining that such actions actually contributed to the destruction of rights and liberty.

It has taken much study, research, and prayer to gain the knowledge and wisdom to understand that there is a difference between making laws thought to be a means of controlling a people, whether necessary or for sinister reasons, and going about our every day in a lawless fashion. There is less and less an inward desire toward respect of persons or the laws, meant to curb chaos, confusion, and disorder.

We do mirror the actions of those who have power over us. It is our sinful nature. Why do children grow up to have so many of the same actions and attitudes as their parents or guardians? Why do sports teams, whether hometown activities, amateur, or professional sports athletes, copy the behavior of their coach or coaches? And doesn’t this same emulation, one of programmed desire, occur with the masses of people seeking to be the same and act the same as the corrupt politicians and lawmakers who, in their complete misunderstood existence, provide for the “Bread and Circuses” that create the existence of willing submission and slavery?

Then again, perhaps it’s as simple as the nation is becoming more lawless because there are too many people – too many that can’t be controlled by the police state all the time and thus are willing to take the risk of breaking the “laws” figuring they won’t get caught, if caught will not be stopped because of other diversions or bigger fish to fry, or that they can buy their way out of any real prosecution. (copy our leaders)

Regardless, while we are mostly subjected to only the “big” headline-making news, small crimes, a product of a growing, out-of-control- society are growing in intensity.

Take for example what I witnessed yesterday – the day of “Satan Clause.”

I traveled north of where I am now to share a holiday dinner with friends and family. On the return trip home, I was traveling on a major highway. I reached a section of this highway, where it began to enter to larger metropolitan area and the highway began to shrink in size down to two travel lanes and in the center of the highway a near continuous turning lane (or at least a turning lane is what I had come to once believe it was. It’s purpose to move vehicles wishing to turn left across traffic out of the travel lanes to keep traffic moving creating fewer traffic jams.)

I don’t like to drive at high speeds anymore – not that I really ever have in my history of driving. However, sometimes I am forced (meaning it’s a safer decision) to drive higher than the speed limit in an attempt to keep irate drivers from getting so pissed off they begin to put other’s lives in danger.

The posted speed limit was 40 mph. I was traveling at 45 mph, not necessarily keeping up with the traffic in front of me. I looked in my rearview mirrors and could see a steady flow of cars passing traffic in the so-called turning lane. Most of these cars were whizzing by me at 55 or maybe 60 mph.

It mattered not to these careless and lawless drivers whether there was clear and ample sight-vision to conduct any resemblance of a “safe” pass. They, in their programmed minds, had someplace to go and the way they drove and behaved, certainly they must have needed to get there “right friggin NOW!”

Small potatoes some or many would say, but is it more? Isn’t it more of a symptom of a bigger issue that is at the bottom of the proverbial kettle that, as it boils, will come to the surface and eventually boil over?

In Proverbs, Solomon wrote: “Where there is no vision, the people decay: But he that keepeth the law is blessed.” – 1599 Geneva Bible Chapter 29, verse 18.

Yahweh’s Scripture in the context of what is provided, pertains to a people ruled by unfaithful ministers of the Word of Yahweh. The 1599 Geneva interpretation chooses to replace King James’ use of the word “perish” with “decay” – perhaps a more precise description.

If we could but only see (let those with eyes see) the missing moral and Scriptural leadership, void of the right vision and lacking the example of leading by the Word of God. Instead they have chosen to lead by the words of men, and thus we see the decay – eventually the perishing.

As the pot boils, it would be my prayer that more people would slow down, look for the leadership by example of Yahweh’s Word, and to have their eyes opened to the lawlessness and Spiritual emptiness that is guiding them; that they will seek Yahweh for answers and not the empty, meaningless words of men.
