There Oughta Be a Law

Dagon, the pagan fish god

Remember the old Simon & Garfunkel song, The Sound of Silence? “And the people bowed and prayed to a neon god they made…”

Idol worship, forbidden by the first two of God’s Ten Commandments, has been with us for a long time, and still us. We’ve gone beyond quaint Philistine fish gods like Dagon. Our idols are bigger, bolder: Science and the state–both of them the works of human hands.

These are the deities of those who reject Christ, Son of God the Father. This is why leftists seek to write laws governing every aspect of human behavior. Putting themselves on God’s throne, as it were, they struggle with the ordeal of trying to live up to their own presumed omnipotence. All those things they blame God for not doing, because (they say) He does not exist–abolishing war and poverty and disease, even uprooting such rootless intangibles as “hate” and this or that ism, even to controlling “climate”–they now have to do! Because they do exist, and they derive their right to rule over us from their claim to be able, if only they are given enough power and clout, to do all those things that God couldn’t do and create a paradise on earth.

You could almost feel sorry for them. Almost, but not quite.

When you try to do everything, you usually end up doing nothing. If globalists got out more often, they might understand that. Because their wealth insulates them, personally, from the often hideous results of their failed public policies, they just keep on cranking them out. Science and the state, their own creations, keep telling them they’re doing the right thing. One more bunch of regulations, and they’ve got it! But they’re really only just talking to themselves, and don’t know it.

Poor Dagon. When in the presence of the Ark of God the Lord, he fell off his pedestal and broke in pieces (I Samuel 5). Sooner or later, such is the fate of all idols.

No matter how many laws their worshipers write to prop them up.

    That’s a good tie-in, they essentially have made themselves into gods. It seems that the lines are becoming ever more defined. God, our Creator God, is allowing people to choose freely and many are choosing against Him. At the culmination, those that oppose Him will literally attack (Ezekiel 38) and make it plain for all to see that they oppose His sovereignty.

    In the meantime, it’s not easy to live with the nonsense that has pervaded, but our only option is to trust in God. Not one human leader will ever be able to truly improve matters for all of mankind. God can do that effortlessly.
