17 Shall even he that hateth [sane'] right [mishpat] govern [chabash]? and wilt thou condemn [rasha`] him that is most [kabbiyr]
just [tsaddiyq]? KJV-Interlinear
17 'Shall one who hates justice
rule? And will you condemn a righteous
mighty one, NASB
There are only two opinions in this universe - Gods
and everything else. Gods opinion is
truth. Truth is accompanied by
Gods rules and mandates are not difficult to follow,
but nonetheless they are rules for righteousness (sinlessness), and justice (a
cleansing or washing away of all taints, flaws, blemishes, etc., or a
correction of all of these flaws back to a state of sinlessness).
Rejection of Gods opinion makes one a subscriber of
any or all of the other opinions.
Opinions, which are not truth, are lies.
Rejection comes in many forms, from indifference, to
antagonism, to outright hate, to the many forms of asceticism or
lasciviousness. Rejection includes all
forms of compromise of truth, to any attempt to modify, qualify, or otherwise
incorporate bits and pieces of truth within ones beliefs. Beliefs, which are 'more' convenient to ones
way of thinking.
Now, shall one who rejects truth, shall one who
rejects rules, shall one who rejects the reasoning and status of Gods opinion,
also lead and impose rules or guidelines on others?
The answer to this rhetorical question is, 'no.' And that just about disqualifies every world
leader or leader want-to-be from holding any and every office that exists. It disqualifies every human being, period.
Anyone who does not live by rules cannot rule by
rules, any rules. Gods rules, which are
located in the Bible and discovered through a consistent daily study, are the
only rules that are legitimate. Anything
else is false.
Conversely, if anyone lives by Gods rules, then will
God condemn them for being obedient to His Word?
Again this question requires the obvious answer, 'no.'
God is faithful to those who are faithful. Those who are faithful are those who live by
truth. Truth is not arbitrary. Truth is
not something you can make up on the fly. Truth is not something that happens
to be popular simply because of its popularity.
Truth is not anything which is imagined, defined, or
designed by mankind. Re-read that last
The nature of evil is to elbow truth out of the way,
and seize control of the rule of this planet from government levels all the way
down to social and even personal thinking levels.
One day God will put an end to the will of all
non-truth, and then human history will be over and eternity will begin. We just have to tolerate it all for a little
while during our respective lives'.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
