DANG (10) - Justice

Most people who have something stolen expect two things to happen.

  • They expect the stolen goods to be returned.
  • They expect the thief to get sufficient penalty to stop them from stealing again.
Civil government cannot be counted on to do either of these things. The fines collected by the justice system go to the government. The victim only rarely receives financial compensation for their troubles. This is that this is now accepted as normal.

When criminals are caught, they are locked up in prisons. More and more people are being locked up, but very few are being rehabilitated. Putting people in prison is another expensive solution that does not work. The cost is paid by taxpayers, so prison punishes the victims a second time.

God's law applied by good judges is a superior system.
