Living in the Community Under God’s Law

Living in the Community Under God's Law

Law is a set of rules, regulations established to govern people. It is true that people want freedom but it is always good to guide freedom so that it will not be misused or abused. The behaviour and conduct of the members of the society have to be guided in such a way that it will bring peace, coexistence, good relationship with others. Without law, members of a society will have conflicts, confusion, irregularities, cheating, and misbehaviour amongst people will be greatly increased. All human beings are God’s creatures. They live together with one another and also with creatures in various communities. As God’s creatures, the show respect for God by respecting one another. To God, each man is important. Each community makes laws to help each member to live well within the society, without disturbing others in any way. They are expected to help one another develop well into full-grown and responsible citizens. Again we have command, which is another means of regulating human conduct. Command usually comes from the supreme authority and is an order which must be obeyed
