The first and greatest lawgiver


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times The first and most important laws the human race has ever lived under were handed down by God to Moses on Mt. Sinai. As the recipient of what is popularly know as “The Ten Commandments,” Moses came to be known as “The Lawgiver.” As he gave those laws to the Hebrews, Moses certainly deserves that title, and yet, Moses was simply the messenger, because it was God who wrote those laws and commanded that they be presented to the Children of Israel. God is the source of all true law, true law being laws applied impartially and fairly to all regardless of their status in society with the goal of seeing that justice, tempered with mercy, is done. While new laws have since been written and re-written in the millenia since, the truth is that the basis of the rule of law, of true justice and mercy, is God, the one who first developed the concept of law, justice and mercy and their fair and impartial administration. A society that recognizes this will be a society that strives to implement the rule of law and with it justice tempered with mercy and bases its laws on those concepts and the truth of their origins. That society will be a society that succeeds, while those that do not, that reject these great truths, will ultimately fail.
