Demonstrating the correctness and effectiveness of Divine judgment

5 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. 6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations. . .

THE KEY: 2 Chronicles 7:14
"If My People, which are called by My Name (the Christians), shall humble themselves (not humble the enemy), and seek My Face (My Law and My Will), and turn from their wicked ways (turn from their disobedience to My Law); then (after they do all that) will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin (their transgression of My Law), and will heal their land." Sin is "the transgression of the Law" (1 John 3:4). To quit sinning, America must turn and obey God's Laws. See inside for examples of our disobedience.

The above is for ftrst degree murder. (This would include aborticide.) Different provisions are made in Bible Law for killing in self-defense, to stop the commission of a crime, for accidental killing, and for killing in war. God requires execution of murderers, because "the blood it deftleth the land; and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but (except) by the blood of him that shed it." Our refusal to execute murderers has deftled America's land.

Thieves who have been punished according to God's judgments (punishments) rarely steal again, as they have had demonstrated to them that "crime does not pay." At the same time, by this example, others learn not to steal. "When the scorner (or disobedient) is punished, the simple is made wise ... " Proverbs 21:11. Parents and teachers know that punishing one child for disobedience teaches all the rest not to disobey. Adults react the same way, just as God's Word says.

When those who violate God's Laws are punished according to God's Judgments (punishments), the citizens enjoy justice, order, quietness, and peace. God says: "When My judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants ofthe world will learn righteousness" (Is. 26:9).
