Acts 25:18 “The accusers came at him from all sides, but their accusations turned out to be nothing more than arguments about their religion and a dead man named Jesus, who the prisoner claimed was alive.

Sometimes people forget that there is a distinction between what is moral and what is legal. In the above verse, Paul is on trial before the governor and he is explaining that he doesn’t know why a religious dispute has come before him. We may consider something to be immoral, but does that mean it should be illegal? Take adultery. Most folks believe that cheating on a spouse is wrong, but do we think they should be arrested, tried and punished for doing so? Laws may change. Right and wrong do not. We elect officials, as we will do on November eighth, to sort out what is legal. We look to God for what is moral.
