#MLK 2017: A just law is a man made code…

#MLK 2016 “A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King ~via Pete Fiske

I agree. Which is why such moral abominations like abortion and the radical homosexual agenda must be vigorously opposed by the Body of Christ!

‘Christianity is the protest against all the high places which human beings build for themselves’ (Barth C.D IV/II p.524). https://gratiaveritaslumen.wordpress.com/2016/01/19/barmen-barth-king-the-calling-to-speak-is-often-a-vocation-of-agony/

    Running a red light is that a moral code or an unmoral code?

    No one is asking but my favorite sermon of Dr. King is, “Precious Values” or rediscovering lost values (his own subtitle) it is very early ’58. From a series “A knock at midnight” you can get it on an interlibrary loan!!!

    I concur with #MLK on this one – unjust laws are just wrong Nelson Banuchi I am Copying Michael Ellis Carter Jr. on this one here

    Dr. King’s speech opposing the Vietnam war was considered “demagogic propaganda” yet the rhetoric of our Plebiscitary Dictator President Trump is considered a matter of national security.

      So we are OK to oppose unjust migrant laws?

      It’s wrong to rebel against any law without Biblical justification. How would you justify that?

      with biblical justification of it being unjust?

      That’s not cause to rebel. Daniel ordered not to pray but he had Scriptural ordinance to pray, so that trumped the unjust law. That’s not the same as you just not approving a law and ignoring it.
