The other day I wrote a post about certain nobles, contemporaries of Nehemiah, who would not dare to associate with common people doing common labor. Today’s post is related to that idea.
Luke 11:46 NASB – But He (Jesus) said, “Woe to you lawyers as well! For you weigh men down with burdens hard to bear, while you yourselves will not even touch the burdens with one of your fingers.”
The brazen irresponsibility of laying down requirements on the citizens, when the ones loading them on people’s backs make sure they are not subject to the same rules, is an affront to the Almighty. (There’s a clue for you. Yes, I believe Jesus and The Almighty are One.)
Is such practice not a tacit admission that the requirements are not desirable or good? If they were, why not gladly also submit to them? God hates differing weights and measures. This practice surely qualifies for that definition.
Every law from which Congress exempts itself ought to be void. DOA.
“You go first; we’ll follow.”
