The End Of The Rule Of Law?

As I was reading this above titled article this morning by American Thinker writer, Thomas Lifson, my mind immediately thought of what Jesus said to the multitude and His disciples in Matthew 23:2-4:

"The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers."

In other words, they did not practice what they preached! Is this not what our corrupt elite leadership in Washington is presently doing? They establish laws for the masses, but do not observe or obey the laws themselves. As a society, what will we have if no one obeys the rule of law established by our Constitution or God Himself, i.e, the Bible?

Chaos, folks .... nothing but chaos (Judges 17:6; Judges 21:25). And today, we are presently seeing chaos, not only in third world countries, but in America as well (note all of the chaotic protests going on around the world!). The opposite of chaos is order. God is a God of peace, which constitutes order! (1 Corinthians 14:32-33 NLT). The Psalmist tells us that order is found in God's truth (Psalm 119:133; John 17:17 KJV). There's an old expression that says, "Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely" (source - see article). Are we not seeing this in the halls of our government, both locally and nationally?

Beloved, is chaos and corruption what we really want for our nation? (Isaiah 1:1-15; Romans 1:16-32 NLT). As Mr. Lifson points out in his above article: "Respect for the law is eroding from the top of our power structure.  That erosion will be far swifter than is realized by the wealthy and powerful whose position and power depends on respect for law. This is a grim future facing us." It's a grim future indeed, Mr. Lifson, making who we vote for in the upcoming election, of vast importance. Our vote will literally determine the future of America's existence as a free nation!
