“I believe women!  I believe the victim!”
“Affirmative consent… Rape shield laws…”

"My feelings are hurt!"

No, let’s remember the basis of the Courts: The Law of Moses.

 
 

Titus 2:3
   The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers

 
 

Typically, when the Bible refers to ‘The Law’, it refers to Mosaic Law, a set of laws (613 rules, such as the 10 Commandments, court laws, financial laws, etc.) given to Israel, outlined in the Bible’s first five books (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy).

And, The Law is flawless.

Psalm 19:7
   The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul

Christ upholds The Law:
Matthew 5:17-18
   Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
   For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Luke 16:17
   And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

 
     
 

Why don’t we follow this perfect Law in our everyday lives?
Because we can’t.  By committing even one sin, we fall short of The Law’s perfection and fall under The Law’s condemnation.


James 2:10
   For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Romans 3:10,23
   There is none righteous, no, not one…
   For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

In fact, even our good deeds are a shadow of perfection.

Isaiah 64:6
   …all our righteous acts are as filthy rags;

The only ‘fault’ with The Law is us.

Hebrews 8:7-8
   For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
   For finding fault with them… the house of Israel and with the house of Judah

 
     
 

How can we possibly be righteous in God’s eyes?
Faith is counted as righteousness.


Romans 4:3        
   Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

Hebrews 10:38
   Now the just shall live by faith

Christ knew Peter would sin by denying him three times.  But Christ prayed that Peter’s faith would not fail.

Luke 22:32
   I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not

If you don’t have faith, you can get it by reading and hearing your Bible.

Romans 10:17
   So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Near the end of his life, the Apostle Paul knew he had won the fight, as he had kept his faith.

2 Timothy 4:7-8
   I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
   Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness

 
     
 

In fact, The Law cursed us, as we tried (and failed) to be made righteous according to the rules of The Law.

Galatians 3:10-11
   For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
   But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

What is The Law’s verdict regarding our failure to meet its perfect standards?

Execution.


Leviticus 24:16
   And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death

Exodus 31:15
   whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.

Leviticus 20:9
   For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death

 
     
 

The good news is the execution took place 2,000 years ago.
By having faith in Christ, who was executed on our behalf, we are not under The Law, but under Grace.


Galatians 3:13
   Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree

Romans 7:4
   …ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

John 1:17
   For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Okay, we are to have faith through Christ… But what else do we do with our lives?
Do we observer the Jewish holidays, ten commandments, burn incense, destroy idols, what?

So, why do we have The Law?  We could never live up to its perfection.  Only Christ did.

Reasons for The Law:

1) God needed a people with righteous practices who could raise his Saviour Christ from childhood.  Sinless Christ couldn’t be in a community worshipping false gods.

Exodus 20:3
   Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Psalm 81:9
   There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.

2) The Law keeps a Jewish people (which has been scattered around the world) together culturally, before their return to Israel.

Deuteronomy 4:27
   And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you.

Jeremiah 31:10
   He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock.

Isaiah 11:12
   …assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

3) The Law lets us recognize our sinful nature, and that we need forgiveness and grace from God.


Romans 7:7
   I had not known sin, but by the law

Romans 3:20
   …for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

4) The Law is an endless source of contemplation for those of God.


Psalm 1:2
   But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

Psalm 119:97
   O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day.

 
     
 

5) The Law forms a basis for the law of Courts.  For example:

Not to kill the accused murderer before trial by peers
(Innocent until proven guilty):

Numbers 35:12
   that the manslayer die not, until he stand before the congregation in judgment.

Appoint Judges and Officers:
Deuteronomy 16:18
   Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.

Justice is blind (impartial):
Deuteronomy 16:19
   Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.

Importance of more than one witness:
Deuteronomy 19:15
   One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

Punishment for false witnesses:
Deuteronomy 19:16,19
   If a false witness rise up against any man to testify…
   Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

Anybody who knows evidence must testify in court:
Leviticus 5:1
   And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity.

 
     
 

What does God think about our feelings – testimony from the heart?

Jeremiah 17:9
   The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Proverbs 28:26
   He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

Proverbs 12:15
   The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

Proverbs 14:12
   There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Matthew 15:19
   For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies
 
     
 

Isaiah 3:12
   ...women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

As our female led society prioritizes effeminate feelings and subjectivity in Court, give a thought to the search for truth and objectivity in Courts of Law in formerly Judeo-Christian nations – a search brought by perfection: The Law.
