The job of a lawyer is to make the law work to the advantage of his client. In Christ’s day the lawyers were the Pharisees. They took the Ten Commandments and invented loop holes so that the letter of the law could appear to be enforced but the spirit, or intent, of the law could be totally subverted. One example regards the commandment “honor your father and mother”. The Pharisees taught that you could say your property was dedicated to God. Then you could not be required to use it for the benefit of your aged parents. Another example was that when you made a promise, if you swore by the temple you were not bound by your oath, but if you swore by the gold in the temple you were bound by your oath. The lawyers perverted the clear intent of the law and invented traps in the law so that it could be used to violate contracts, and allow false witnesses to testify. The law was used as an instrument of theft. Today Constitutional scholars find that the Constitution does not mean what it clearly says, and that it means what is not stated. The Constitution becomes an evolving thing rather than a rock of stability. Each new court decision makes the law something new and different. The commandment “thou shall not steal” now means, it is acceptable to steal if you can get the government to do it for you. A graduated income tax steals form the rich and gives to the poor. It is alright because it is legal. General Electric, one of the largest corporations in the world, pays no income tax because it has successfully lobbied the government for green tax credits. It is alright to kill your children if the law defines it as abortion rather than murder. It is acceptable for you to create money out of nothing and loan it into existence at interest as long as the government has given you a monopoly to do it. Since the government cannot legislate morality, it must be acceptable for it to legislate immorality.
