Luck or Providence? (D)

The underlying principle ofrepparttar Magna Carta is what is known as habeas corpus, which in Latin means, “you shall haverepparttar 105442 body.” To us who are guarded by habeas corpus it means that a person can not be held in jail or against his will without evidence of wrongdoing. This isrepparttar 105443 crux of United States criminal law. It is powerful. It is just. It came byrepparttar 105444 hand of Providence, no doubt, because God is all about justice.

In 1679 English Parliament compelled Charles II to accept habeas corpus as a specific statute. The king was not aboverepparttar 105445 law. “Today,repparttar 105446 legal systems of most ofrepparttar 105447 world’s democratic nations supportrepparttar 105448 principle of habeas corpus. The Constitution ofrepparttar 105449 United States declares thatrepparttar 105450 ‘privilege ofrepparttar 105451 writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless, when in cases of rebellion or invasion,repparttar 105452 public safety may require it.’ The privilege was suspended by President Lincoln duringrepparttar 105453 Civil War…Habeas corpus is one ofrepparttar 105454 most fundamental principles ofrepparttar 105455 criminal justice system. It guidesrepparttar 105456 actions of police and prosecutors, even though usually it is not specifically invoked” (Yenne p. 45).

Byrepparttar 105457 way,repparttar 105458 Magna Carta reflectsrepparttar 105459 Law of God. Any stable and lasting law of civilizations does. America would do well to acknowledge her chief law,repparttar 105460 U.S. Constitution, subject to only one Law—the Law of God. Keeprepparttar 105461 faith. Stayrepparttar 105462 course.

Did any ofrepparttar important people listed above recant their stand against reform once they determinedrepparttar 105441 facts? Again Charen writes, “Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton grudgingly acknowledged that ‘we have a lot to celebrate,’ but added, ‘I don’t think that’srepparttar 105442 end ofrepparttar 105443 discussion.’ Even as late as 2001, whenrepparttar 105444 dramatic effects of welfare reform were quite undeniable, Barbara Ehrenreich would say only that there ‘were some success stories…But overall, it’s a sad story.’ Jason de Parle,repparttar 105445 New York Times reporter who had coveredrepparttar 105446 welfare debate for five years, admits that he was surprised byrepparttar 105447 outcome, though, unlike most liberals who averted their eyes fromrepparttar 105448 good news, he did not…” You can readrepparttar 105449 book.

Now why would I write a paper like this? Why would I, a minister ofrepparttar 105450 Gospel of Jesus Christ, write (with an obvious bias) against a government entitlement program—welfare—when it provides money torepparttar 105451 poor? May I go on record? I denounce any government program that enslaves people. Many disabled and impoverished people need help. Welfare was designed to help them. It does; however, welfare has been abused to perpetuate dependency, break uprepparttar 105452 family unit it was suppose to preserve, and has taxed heavilyrepparttar 105453 working poor. This, to me, is criminal. Why? Becauserepparttar 105454 Bible clearly states that people who are capable of working, should work to support their own.

I’ll leave you with a few scriptures to look over: I Timothy 5: 8 “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has deniedrepparttar 105455 faith and is worse than an unbeliever” (NASB).

I Thessalonians 4: 11-12 , “and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you, (12) so that you will behave properly toward outsiders and not be in any need” (NASB).

Keeprepparttar 105456 faith. Stayrepparttar 105457 course. And until Jesus comes for us, keep your day job and support your own. This is honorable, and God wills it so.
