While the Bible is clear no one can be justified by the law; and there is no law that can give life, nevertheless most are still living the lie. Most live with the idea that all we need is to create more laws as if you can somehow legislate better behavior. One example of this I heard about is so silly and yet there are some that think it will help.
Within our country there are some pretty strange laws in place. For instance in a few states you can now smoke marijuana legally. In a few more you can legally marry your same sex partner. In many more a woman can get an abortion without much trouble. These are all, in my opinion, very troubling things for our country to legalize and yet there is one more now that is even more unbelievable. In California I hear they want to do what New York’s mayor has already done. They want to limit our soft drink size to 16oz only.
That’s right you heard me! In this great country of ours we can now smoke pot, have abortions and get married to the same sex, but in no way are we going to let you destroy your life by drinking more than 16oz of pop at a time. Aren’t you glad these smart politicians and legislators are looking out for our best interests? I shudder to think what I would do without them. That’s just a little bit of sarcasm in case you couldn’t tell.
Sometimes I think to myself “You know Jesus already told us we are different than the world and it’s going to be tough,” but moments like these leave me almost speechless. Some things you don’t even need to bring the Bible into the discussion for, you know? It only takes a little logic to know pot impairs judgment and same sex marriage and abortion are both pathways to death. On the other hand my intake of soft drinks hasn’t done any damage at all. Let me end here with a quote….. “We have educated ourselves into imbecility” Malcolm Muggeridge
