Bible law exceeds God’s “Eye for an Eye” law.

From this fact, it follows that human institutions have placed themselves higher than God, in terms of what laws they will follow. This includes religious hierarchies. They all break the first commandment. All believers also break the first commandment if following secular law over God‘s.

There are ample examples in scriptures where the basic law of an eye for an eye is promoted. IOW, the penalty should suit the sin. A graduated scale of fault. A do onto others and brotherly love type of fiduciary thinking. Reciprocity is fair play type of thinking.

Lev 24;20
Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again.

You might note that this passage indicates that man sins against man and shows that we do not and cannot sin against God. Forgiveness comes from man. God cannot be hurt by mere men.

There are also ample instances where the Bible urges us to kill our own for reasons that are less offensive and that do not meet the notions of the justice of an eye for an eye. Fornication and disrespecting parents being two of the many reasons to exact holy revenge by death. Exceeding an eye for an eye by a long shot. It is these more barbaric law that has helped secularism grow.

In following secular laws, we seem to be ignoring God’s laws and thus breaking the first commandment.
God. The word God, means many things to many people but at the root of your understanding of the meaning of that word-- should be rules for living a good life.

Secularism has wisely, chosen to discard some of the older notions and draconian laws.
As more people become educated to secular standards, religions will decline. God’s laws will die in the hearts of men.

Should believers of the Bible God follow God’s laws or the laws of man?
Does it break the first commandment or not if believers follow mans laws?

Is this an end to religion’s and God’s relevance in terms of law?
Is the mythical God no longer required for the best law?

Remember please that we are in 2011. Not 111.

When it comes to Crime and Punishment, I used to be highly against the death penalty.

Now, that I'm a bit more 'spiritually endowed' I think the death penalty should be optional for criminals.

I may not be behind any physical bars but thirty-eight years on planet earth is far to long, man. Far, far too long.

With 45 behind me I'd tend to agree with that last sentiment

One way or another it seems very easy to get stuck in a time warp.......

Actually, the laws regarding Cannabis are currently under review right now. We've got 90 days starting from April 13, 2011 to re-vamp them as they were deemed unconstitutional. Where we go from there, who knows.
So, what does that mean?

God has shown that he rewards rebellion against poor laws or conditions.
Satan, was rewarded with the earth as his kingdom, A & E were rewarded with a moral sense and Cain became king of a city for killing Abel.

See what I mean.
The only reason pot is not legal in Canada is because the U S is protecting their market share and killing Mexicans to do so.
Remember that pot has been California's largest cash crop for 40 odd years now.
Hypocrisy to the max is what your drug war is.

To legal use. If we are smart enough to follow the advice of our our LeDain Royal Commission.
It is actually considered by experts to be the last word on drugs.
Like the Avrow Arrow, the U S is forcing us to ignore the best for their polluted system.
