Day 15 – Absolutes
Absolutes, I hear, they are not popular with some folk, but for me, I absolutely appreciate absolutes.
What brought this on? Glad you ask.
Dr. Quinn. Yes, I watch an episode or two often. You may recall it was a television series from 1993 to 1998. Overall it was excellent family entertainment. I did not agree with every issue presented in every storyline but who would expect me to. Right? 🙂
Today Brian quizzed how to know when it was right to refuse to obey an unjust law. In essence he was told his conscience would be his guide. That’s good counsel if you have a pure conscience. But who does??
I need more than that.
I need. No.
I WANT absolutes. And I have them. So do you. They are found between the covers of 66 Books – The Bible.
There in the Bible is every absolute needed to keep me safe and sane.
So when is a law of man unjust?
When it violates one of ABBA’s.
Even so He requires that I use every legal and peaceful avenue available to me to bring justice amid injustice.
I love ’em!!

Romans 12: Amplified Bible (AMP)
17 Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone.
18 If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [God’s] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord.
