Find myself asking questions. Then forgetting why.

The Law or Love? You decide …

Here is how the law works.

I drive my car. I try to keep to the speed limits if I think I will be caught or it is unsafe to speed. Occasionally I think I have been caught. But the cameras seem to not have been working as nothing happened. So I was not caught at all. I am a blameless driver in the eyes of the law.

Here is how the law works.

We agree a price to have extensive works to the house. The work done is deemed to need redoing again urgently. The builder says we are nuts. We were lied to and think ourselves defrauded. The official – and publicly funded bodies – express concern and issue reference numbers. But “due to funding pressures” no longer interact or give feedback. We face the probability of an uncollectable debt. The law considers that to be as fair as is possible.

Here is how the law works.

For those who read their bibles and see “The Law” … who have faith that the law is the way to heaven and salvation … I have a thought.

Here is how the law works.

What if the “heavenly system” is as flawed as the “earthly system”? Are you sure that by “obeying the law” (as you determine it to be obeyed) it is enough?

Here is how the law works.

And if – as I hear you chuckle – you think: “Paul what a ridiculous scenario – of course the “heavenly system” is just perfect and perfectly fair – God sees and knows everything!”

Then that is not the law as we know it.

I am not a blameless driver. We would not be facing an uncollectable debt. That is earthly law at work.

Then that is not the law as we know it.

A “perfect heavenly system” cannot be the law as we know it.

Then that is not the law as we know it.

The “heavenly system” must be unconditional love at work.  What other option is there?

Then that is not the law as we know it.

So why do we deny unconditional love?

The Law or Love?

.

We each must decide.

That’s called “relationship”.

And that’s called “commitment”.

And that’s my GSHJ.
