Why Did God Establish the Law

From these writings, you can see that a nation`s right to land is guaranteed only by obedience to the laws of the land of which it is. Although man was given dominion over the earth by Adam, this rule was under God. Therefore, man is responsible for establishing God`s laws and establishing His order. Since this is the case, consider these questions: On whom do God`s laws extend? Is anyone excluded? Does the violation of God`s laws among consenting adults (a popular term in today`s world) destroy the law? Is there a sin that only hurts the individual? How is every sin a violation of God`s order? How are all sins sins against God, even if they don`t seem to hurt anyone else? How should we respond to the person who says, “This is my life; Can I live it the way I want”? Murder is the premeditated murder of a person, but the jurisprudence stemming from the Sixth Commandment shows that we also have a duty to prevent unwanted deaths. A particularly striking case is when an ox (a draft horse) bleeds a man or woman to death (Exodus 21:28-29). If the event was foreseeable, the owner of the beef should be treated like a murderer. In other words, owners/managers are responsible for ensuring safety at work within reasonable limits. This principle is enshrined in law in most countries, and workplace safety is the subject of significant government policing, industry self-regulation, and organizational policies and practices. Nevertheless, jobs of all kinds still require or allow workers to work in unnecessarily dangerous conditions. The Sixth Commandment reminds Christians who play a role in determining working conditions, supervising workers, or modeling workplace practices that safe working conditions are among their highest responsibilities in the world of work.

(12-26) Ancient Israel was made clear that the land belonged to the Lord. He is their ruler and king. As such, He can not only dictate His laws, but also establish people on His land. The Book of Mormon joins the Bible in testifying to this fact. Pause for a moment and ponder these scriptures: 1 Nephi 17:36–39; 2 Nephi 1:7; Deuteronomy 4:20, 37-38 These verses reaffirm the universality of sin so clearly stated in verses 10-12. Paul makes three remarks: Or to put it another way, many Bible teachers will argue that the Covenant with Moses (made with Israel on Mount Sinai) is fundamentally different from the covenant with Abraham (which was made earlier) and the New Covenant (on Calvary) under which we live. The difference, they say, is this: the Abrahamic Covenant and the New Covenant promise that salvation will be received freely by faith, outside the works of the law. But by virtue of the Covenant with Moses, salvation (or God`s blessing) is not offered voluntarily to faith, but offered as a reward for the works of the law. Since only perfect works could deserve the salvation of a perfectly holy God, and no one can achieve it, the law simply makes us aware of our sin and misery and proclaims our condemnation. This is probably the most popular view of the Mosaic Law in the Church today, and it is false.

This makes Moses a legalistic Pharisee, turns the Torah into the very heresy that Paul condemned in Galatia, and (worst of all) makes God his own enemy by ordering that people try to gain his blessing (and thus exalt themselves) instead of resting in his sufficient mercy (and thus exalting him). God gave the law to reveal His standard of absolute righteousness, to convince us all of our true guilt before Him, so that we would know our need for the gospel. Paul laid the foundation for this point from 1:18 to 3:20. We will study it in 3:21-28, but we will briefly note (3:21-22): “But now, in addition to the law, the righteousness of God has manifested itself, attested by the law and the prophets, even the righteousness of God by faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.” As he goes on to say (3:24), “by His grace we are justified as a gift by the redemption that is in Jesus Christ.” This is the greatest news in the world: although we are all guilty of breaking God`s law, He offers forgiveness to all who trust in Jesus and His vicarious death on the cross! Keeping the law was so inaccessible that the goal was to show people that they could not abide by it. It was given for them to cry out to God for salvation. Let`s skip how you hurt the Lord`s day and move on to the other six that focus on your love for others: (5) “Honor your father and mother.” (6) “Thou shalt not kill.” (7) “You must not commit adultery.” (8) “You must not fly.” (9) Thou shalt not bear false witness. (10) “Thou shalt not desire. If they had obeyed the law given to them, what would have been the results? Fourth, some actions, whether intentional or accidental, require liability that requires restitution, for damaging another person`s property is depriving him of a measure of his value: [see Exodus 22:5–6]. The return in all these cases depends on the nature of the action; When fruit trees or vines are damaged, future production is damaged and the responsibility is proportionate. Criminal law has nothing more than vestiges of the principle of restitution; Civil lawsuits must now be brought by an offended party in order to obtain damages, and then disregard the biblical principle.

“But,” she said, “when I walked into this court and stood alone up there, and the judge sat on the bench, dressed in his black robe, and looked at me through his glasses and said, `Guilty or not guilty,` all my arguments faded.” His mouth was stopped. To transgress means to cross or cross a border, to violate a law, order or moral code. Therefore, violations refer to the act of violating this norm. .
