Prov. 28:4-5 - "those who forsake the law praise the wicked, But those who keep the law strive with them. 5 Evil men do not understand justice,…" NASU
There is no doubt Michael Brown fits the description of the one who is wicked that is being spoken about in Prov. 28:4. and the people who were rioting and protesting are the ones forsaking the law.
I wonder if Michael Brown's parents had owned the store where the cigars wore stolen and they were man handled by the thief, if they would have accepted this crime against them or if they would have called 911 and asked for the Ferguson police to come and investigate a crime that had been committed against them?
I am pretty sure I know the answer to that question.
There would be no justice in punishing Officer Darren Wilson, there would only be revenge, which is a crime of a different kind.
I am not advocating the keeping of laws here for your salvation, for that is impossible. We are saved because Jesus kept all the laws perfectly. We will be saved when we accept the blood of Jesus to atone for our sins.
I am advocating the keeping of laws to be a good citizen of the USA. Prov. 28:18 -He who walks blamelessly will be delivered, But he who is crooked will fall all at once. NASU
It is to our advantage to obey the laws of the land or as stated above to walk blamelessly for in so doing we will be delivered. If you don't obey the laws of the land then know this your fall will come all at once. It will come upon you suddenly and when it comes there will not be anyone to blame but yourself.
Keep the laws and be a model citizen of the country you live in while here on earth and also be a model citizen of Heaven while living temporarily here on earth.
