Law: Truth vs. Myths
Myth: The Rule of Law Prevents Crime
The crime statistics for law based governments reveal that making things illegal does not produce a moral society.
Truth: The Rule of Law Creates Criminals
The Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution banned the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages. The law remained in place from 1920 to 1933; however, the resultant crime-wave forced its repeal. That law was largely responsible for the growth of the organized crime syndicates that plague American cities to this day. It would not be unreasonable to assume that we would have learned from that mistake; unfortunately, we did not. The laws enacted to win the “War on Drugs,” have only compounded the problem, and turned American inner cities into crime-ridden war zones, where teenage drug pushers kill each other in turf wars. The drug use these laws were designed to eliminate, have only made them more available, and increased addiction problems exponentially.
Making a substance illegal only forces the behavior underground, creating a market for criminals to exploit. Do not make laws that punish commerce and create criminals. Declare anti-social conduct immoral, and manage the behavior as we do with alcohol.
Making a substance illegal increases its value, and criminals will seek to fill the demand. Providing clean needles and treatment for drug addicts only encourages their antisocial behavior, increasing the demand. Legalize commerce, and punish the antisocial behavior that creates the demand.
Criminals will risk their lives and freedom to make the incredible profits available in the illegal drug trade. Not many people will take that same risk for a drug high.
It is time to face The Awful Truth, the rule of law cannot produce a moral society.
There is no such thing as a “Modern Government.” In one form or another, all of our current governments are based on concepts formulated in the ancient world. Our theocracies and constitutional monarchies are a powerless pretense to an ancient reality, and our “modern” democracies and republics, are based on the theocratic laws of ancient Israel, Greece, and Rome. These anachronistic systems were viable when the ancient gods appointed tyrannical leaders to rule our ancestors, but they do not serve humanity well as we try to rule ourselves.
Ancient World Theocratic Government
The ancient world theocratic governments of Greece and Rome were designed to psychologically and physically enslave the individual to the aristocracy / state. All of our modern-world governments were modeled after those anachronistic systems. In Europe, they evolved first into Christian theocracies based on the Ten Commandments of the Bible, then into Christian constitutional monarchies. Some of these monarchies were overthrown by communist and fascist revolutions. After many wars, they have evolved into social democracies and republics. These “modern” governments, were modeled after the Pagan governments of ancient Greece and Rome, and based on the rule of law.
The God of Abraham
As part of His covenant with the ancient Israelites, the God of Abraham gave Moses Ten Commandments. Those laws were designed to inform the Israelites on how to conduct themselves when interacting with God, and each other. The Israelites failed to keep God’s Covenant, and by the time Messiah came, their leaders had made a new covenant with Rome, and the Roman King Herod had redesigned God’s temple. When Messiah entered Jerusalem in AD30, he proclaimed the restoration of the true Kingdom of God. He went to Herod’s temple, condemned it as a “Den of Thieves,” denounced the scribes and Pharisees, and told them that their Day of Judgment was at hand. As he was leaving, he told his disciples that the temple would be destroyed to the foundation stones. Mat. 23-24.
Messiah revealed to his disciples that there would be a New Covenant between God and the Israelites. The cornerstone of that covenant was one law. It fulfilled the Law of Moses:
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Mat. 7:12.
In a letter to the Israelites, the Apostle Paul affirmed the Messiah’s admonition:
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Gal. 5:14.
The Pagan / Satanic system of Laws cannot produce a peaceful and moral society. To achieve that noble goal, we must use the history of God’s dealings with the ancient Israelites to:
- Solve the mystery of human existence.
- End the degrading concept that we evolved from prime apes.
- Reveal God’s purpose in Creation. See the link, Creation: The Purpose on the Navigator.
- Use “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself,” as the cornerstone of our modern governments.
Humans that know who they are, their purpose in life, and where they go next, are truly free. They will not be seduced by self-destructive life-styles, or require endless laws to guide their morals. They will revere both God and their fellow-man, and behave in an honorable and dignified manner. It is time for academia to end the conflict between science and religion, and solve the mystery of human existence. Only then, will we be able to let go of the anachronistic system of “The Rule of law,” and create a truly modern and moral society.
The Truth in One Sentence.
Precisely as foretold in the history of ancient Israel, The Second Coming of Messiah coincided with the destruction of the temple and fall of Jerusalem. To see the endless archeological and historical evidence supporting that reality, click here: Bookstore.
