Legal and moral responses #2

Christian Conservative serves up the post promised here. The money-quote, far as I'm concerned is this:

When the 10 Commandments were first issued, they were immediately reconciled with the law that God had already written in the heart, and Israel’s judicial system was formed with no distinction between what was legal and what was moral. To the Jews of antiquity, legal and moral were intricately one and the same. Over the centuries however, the distance man has placed between his governments and God now dictates we distinguish between the legal and the moral, just as the Hebrew Midwives did who were commanded by Pharaoh to kill the firstborn males in Egypt. These two Hebrew women had to separate legal from moral when they refused Pharaoh’s edict, as we must do also, and failed to do with regard to Terri Schiavo.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a laser hair removal risk related site. Most of the articles are on laser hair removal risk.
