Trying to legislate morality only empowers those who agree and offends those who don’t; it can never cure the human heart.
We must not rely on politics to do the job that love-motivated-evangelism was purposed to do. Abdicating our responsibilities there only leads to our disappointment with a natural system that was never capable of touching a supernatural problem.
Laws succeed only when observed by those who’s hearts bear witness to them willingly, embraced in the soul not simply the mind. Eventually the heart of man will push against restraint until there’s revolt.
Governments appear to rule, yet only manage, and that inferiorly.
Laws address symptoms. Jesus addresses hearts. Keep your heart’s eye on him and always look to serve people, not processes.
