THE EDITOR, Sir:
I would like to shed some light on why there is so much violence, lawlessness and immorality in this beautiful land of ours.
Jesus said to His disciples, "Every writer who is knowledgeable concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a man who is a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old."
Some people totally disregard the Old Testament, saying it has no place in this dispensation of grace.
Others hang on to the Old Testament teachings, totally disregarding the New. Either way abrogates the intention of The King concerning citizens/subjects of His Kingdom. There must be a balance.
God does not change His mind to suit men's thinking. His methods of dealing with us may vary, but his ultimate aim is the same.
The reason there is so much confusion concerning laws, standards of behaviour, etc., is man attempting to make God in his image. When it suits him, he quotes from the Bible, but, on other occasions, to him, the Bible is outdated and archaic.
