Is Man The Only Creature Who Doesn’t Conform to The Laws?


In this life each person lives, we must have order. There is order in the universe, in our solar system or we would never have lasted as long on earth as we have, unless there was order… How can any person go out on a clear night, look into the heavens and not see order? How can science believe it is chaos in the universe? Everything is based on laws and everything lives by those laws except man. Man is the only creature who doesn’t conform to the laws. If you don’t believe in order then believe in the laws of nature. What holds this earth together? Why don’t we fly into space? The laws of nature keep everything functioning properly. Gravity, light, sound, everything works by law and everything is in its proper order. Everything but man that is, and he will conform in due time.

Man has been given laws for him to live but only man has a choice. The one law that science never talks about much is the law of consequence. For this law to recieve awareness, man must believe they have choices and reap the consequences of those choices. What happens if one element doesn’t work by the law? What happens if a star quits working? What happens if anything doesn’t conform to the laws by which it is governed? What happens if man, or the majority of them, if they decide not to live by the laws?

This is when the law of consequence enters into the equation. To every action there is a reaction. I believe this law is stated very clearly in the Bible. As you sow so shall you reap? Gal: 6:7,”what so ever a man soweth so shall he reap.” This may seem like a carefully worded saying but let us look further. The laws that govern man are found in the various religious writings over the centuries. The Bible and the Ten Commandments are what this nation used to establish most of its laws. It is also a fact that man is a free agent to make decisions and live by those decisions.

This nation built upon the concept of freedom and the basic idea of freedom of choice, gives those in this nation great advantage over other, not so fortunate people. There are the unwritten laws of a society. “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” Now for a free people it is important they pay attention to what is happening in their free society. A government that rules people in a free society must also be held responsible by the people who live in that society. Without a democracy or republic, real freedom is never quiet achieved.

“A government of the people, for the people, and by the people,” will never be any better than the people who live in the society that has adopted that government. If people in a free society let government run out of control then the people of that society will pay the price for their apathy. When a society lives not in order but twists truth into lies and government uses those lies to govern, then freedom is lost, it becomes tyranny, unjust rule based on false ideals. Truth is always the answer for a free society and the people of that society must set a proper standard for the government to follow. The government learns from the people what is acceptable and the people allow the government to function based upon what is acceptable to the majority. This is the law of consequence in action. “As one sows so shall one reap.” In a nation it comes down to, as the majority sow so shall the majority reap.

James Madison expressed it this way:

“No theoretical checks, no form of government, can render us secure. To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people is a chimerical idea. If there be sufficient virtue and intelligence in the community, it will be exercised in the selection of these men; so that we do not depend on their virtue, or put confidence in our rulers, but in the people who are to choose them.”

If the people in the society have very little virtue then what will the government do? It will adjust to the needs of the people and tyranny will develop. Greed, apathy, liars, cheaters, all forms of evil are the foundation for the destruction of a free society. The people in a free society must live free from the dreaded disease of apathy. This is what causes a society, based upon freedom to become polluted and decayed.

Virtue is obtained by God fearing people that not only try to live by integrity but live by the unwritten laws of man. “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” The people who live with virtue demand virtue from the government but if they live in iniquity they reap what they sow, more iniquity. It behooves us as a free society to take inventory and check our virtues. If we have not enough virtue then we must change or we will reap what is sowed, the result is apathy and contagious social disease called iniquity. When this condition exists, then every citizen will reap what is sowed. The just and the unjust will endure the law of consequence. The rewards for our apathy and iniquity.

No one can harm the man who wrongs not himself.
