Judges not Politicians

We do not need elected politicians to write laws and regulations to cover every possible situation. We need good judges to interpret the God’s moral principles, using the method of application described in the books of the law.

God is our lawmaker. He has given us all the law that we need, so we do not need politicians to make laws for us. However, God’s law will always have to be interpreted and applied to the current situation. Elected politicians will not have the skills to do this task. The best people to do this task will be wise and godly judges.

Good judges are all that we need in addition to the law. God has provided his standard for justice in the law. Our challenge is to apply God’s law to the modern world.
