The Rule of Law

I understand the problem with the issues of gay marriage and bathroom access.  I understand that we want laws and Supreme Court rulings to validate the laws that would support what the Bible says about homosexuality.

But understand this.  We can get the ‘right’ president elected.  We can get the executive orders we want.  We can get the right laws passed and we can get Supreme Court decisions in our favor.  And we still haven’t seen what God wants to accomplish in these last days.

Executive orders and laws and Supreme Court rulings cannot change one heart, cannot change one life.  Only Jesus can change a heart.  And politicians can’t make that happen.  That only happens when we, when I simply tell someone what Jesus has done in my heart.




About Angus Lewis

My wife and I lived our whole lives in Arkansas until ten years ago. We moved to the Kansas City area in 2011 (a job change). That was the reason for the 'From a Far Country' title. Our children and grandchildren were in Arkansas. Six months ago we sold our house and bought one in Sherwood, Arkansas and my wife moved back down here. Two weeks ago I retired and moved back too. (I'm probably going to try to find something part time to keep me out of trouble.) So maybe the 'From a Far Country' title is not so much of a fit anymore. But I think I'll stick with it. I'm still not home. Not yet. The Bible says we are all strangers and pilgrims here. Our real home is with God and some day we'll be there. We'll be home.
