LIVING WITHIN THE LAW
(LIVING IN THE SPIRIT WITHIN THE LAW)
This paper is designed
Consider the need for legitimate authority
Reflect on circumstances
when compliance is difficult
Consider how to plan
prayer into what we do and say
Consider how to act with
God's help in specific situations
so be more ready and able to only challenge authority when it is right to do so
and with a view to helping to bring about God's Kingdom on earth.
"The letter of the Law brings death, but
the Spirit brings Life." (2
We are ministers of the new covenant, written on our hearts not on stone
As Christians we should
strive to exceed the legal requirements of a secular world and by so doing,
demonstrate the power of the love of Christ.
In a world beset by red tape, acronyms and inspecting bodies, how should
we react to Audits, OFSTED, Sarbanes-Oxley, Child Protection Regulations,
Political Correctness, etc; how do we discern the just from the unjust?
