QUESTION #2: Where in the Bible does it mention God as being the Lawgiver and what is the biblical definition of law?


Dave Kistler:

“Let me preface what I’m going to say by referencing a verse of Scripture from the Book of Isaiah. It’s Isaiah 33:22 where the three aspects of God’s nature is very clearly communicated. It says this, “The Lord is our law giver. The Lord is our judge. The Lord is our king. He will fight for us.” Those are the three aspects of God’s nature from which our founders derived the three branches of government. The Lord is our lawgiver. There’s your legislative branch. The Lord is our judge. There’s your judicial branch. The Lord is our king. There’s your executive branch. They understood God was a law giver, and all of our laws in our Constitution were based upon a very clear understanding of that.

Law, from God’s perspective is a standard by which we establish what’s right and what’s wrong. We do have to have a standard. The Scripture is crystal clear on this. In 1 Timothy 1, verses 9 and 10, that law is given for the benefit or for the purpose of those who are lawless. Listen to what the Scripture says, “Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane. For murders of fathers and murderers of mothers, for man slayers, for whore mongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind,” and on and on it goes.

…We’re living in a culture especially that wants to pitch and get rid of those things mentioned in 1 Timothy 1 verse 10: whore mongers, them that defile themselves with mankind. All of that’s involved in the LGBT lifestyle, and they’re trying to cast off God’s law because this law of God convicts them and accuses them, and justly so and makes them guilty before a holy and a righteous God.”
