Deuteronomy 1: 17 You are not to]show partiality in judgment; you shall hear the small and the great alike. You are not to be afraid of any person, for the judgment is God’s. (NASB)
While it is true that people will disagree about what is the best approach to problem solving and interpersonal relations the fact that in a republican form of democracy (not speaking of political parties here) it is still necessary as it was in the days of Moses to appoint people to arbitrate the affairs of the people. What is truly sad is that I our tragically fallen state we have decided that this is a point at which leverage can be applied, no matter how misconstrued, to place political agenda over righteousness.
“Knee-jerk” judgmental reactions to the hue and cry of overly vocal people with too much access to the public microphone has driven some of the most asinine responses imaginable to very real problems. (vis gun control, abortion, immigration). Judges tend to be obligated to their masters, those who appointed them and more disturbingly the edicts from the bench can be taken as “new” law even in defiance of existing law. How absurd!
Lately I feel as though the voice of reason, the Spirit of God is so far removed from the courts of moral guidance for the nation that we will surely soon be doomed to the impending judgement of an extremely wrathful God from whose court there will be no reprieve.
