ALL Equal Under Law

I had a rather strange thought floating around in my head last week.  Well, it is actually still there, which has helped to compel me to put it out there for your consideration.

Anyway, after reading statement after statement about our Heavenly Father’s Holy Bible being the final Authority over ALL things in the midst of all of the cussing and discussing in a Facebook group about Biblical Universalism, a thought about comparing it to the [Magna Carta] popped up.  For the Magna Carta basically made the King of England as subject to the laws of the land as his subjects were, and with so very many looking at our Heavenly Father as being not so unlike how we naturally are, a desire for Him to be also bound by law is not really all that much of a stretch.

The United States Constitution takes it even farther than the Magna Carta.  For it gets pretty specific about what a president can and cannot do, and quite a few in the Christian community consider it to be a sacred document.

No, I haven’t actually read anything by anyone, who came right out and said so in so many words.  On the other hand, I have been told that there is no need for our Heavenly Father to say anything to us at this time because of Him already saying it all in His Holy Scriptures.

Furthermore, I was taught that [Hebrews 4:12] is referring to the Bible.  Of course, that requires ignoring [Hebrews 4:13], but since I did not realize what is really being said there until our Heavenly Father started making Himself real to me years later, that is no biggie.

Besides, concerns over our Heavenly Father’s righteousness is nothing new.  For it is written: “So listen to me, you men of understanding.  Far be it from God to do evil, from the Almighty to do wrong.  He repays everyone for what they have done; he brings on them what their conduct deserves.  It is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that the Almighty would pervert justice.  Who appointed him over the earth?  Who put him in charge of the whole world?  If it were his intention and he withdrew his spirit and breath, all humanity would perish together and mankind would return to the dust.  If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say.  Can someone who hates justice govern?  Will you condemn the just and mighty One?  Is he not the One who says to kings, ‘You are worthless,’ and to nobles, ‘You are wicked,’ who shows no partiality to princes and does not favor the rich over the poor, for they are all the work of his hands?” [Job 34:10-19 NIV]

No, I do not quite know what to make of this thought.  For it may just be for the purpose of preparing me for what is about to be brought out into light to a much greater extent.  Considering the fact of how much our Heavenly Father’s image is being drug down to our level these days, that certainly makes sense.

An aside: our US Presidents historically have a pretty long history of ignoring the laws of the land (particularly, currently, the Kenyan and obedience to the Constitution.) And Presidents ignoring laws has been one of the leading causes of wars and troubles. Consider (I'll be blogging about this eventually) how FDR did all he could to meddle in international affairs in order to bring the US into WWII. But had we vigilantly done all we could to stay out of it, Hitler and Stalin could have both vented their atheistic rage at one another and more or less cancelled each other out. Consider: no cold war.

I hear you, my dear Lavender, and I felt much the same way about letting the rest of the world burn until our Heavenly Father got me to see that all who are not Americans are still His kids. Of course, this does not mean that we should get involved in everything we can, but we were made so rich and powerful for the purpose of helping those in need all over.
