I told Lea that all the good things she was trying to do in order to make things right were like trying to bribe a judge to look the other way from her crimes.
"I asked "Could it be that you don't want to admit that there was a creator, because it would mean that you would be somewhat indebted to Him?" She asked how did I know it was a him? It was a diversionary tactic, designed to throw me off. I told her it was a strawman response, and I needed her to think logically."
"I told her that if you are guilty of a crime and a fine needs to be paid, someone else can pay the fine for you. It is legal. It doesn't make you innocent, but legally, you are allowed to go. That's what Jesus did for you. You broke God's law, and Jesus paid the fine in His life's blood."
Another thing to note about governments and guardians: when their time is over, their spirit departs (v4). Just like us, they succumb to the ultimate statistic: 10 out of 10 people die. All their plans for good come to nothing for them. What is the point of placing our faith in someone mortal, like us? Shouldn’t we be looking towards someone immortal, which can be relied upon?
