Suggested Reading Matthew 23:29-36
In this passage Jesus tells us that we will be held guilty for the sins of our fathers of the past if we don’t change our ways.
Remember that just because it is legal does not make it right. Now we must obey the law of the land or we will be killed hear in Good old America. We could serve on a jury and still be with in GOD’s teaching. We are not judging them we are deciding if they broke the law. The judgement needs to come from the victim. If there is no victim, then there is no judging to be done. In the case of murder, GODs law tells us that it should be decided by a council of peers if it was in fact murder. We should stop there. It should be up to the victim’s family if the person should be punished. What if there is no family? In the case of murder there is always a victim that is left behind. It could be a friends, It could be a poor person that was fed by the one who was murdered.
Matthew 7:1-2 CEV tells us, “ Don’t condemn others, and God won’t condemn you. 2 God will be as hard on you as you are on others! He will treat you exactly as you treat them.”
