Galatians 5:23 (NIV)

Against such things, there is no law.

America, like many nations, is a nation of laws. The laws and rights enshrined in the constitution protect the civil liberties of all her citizens while maintaining law and order. However, the rules can never change corrupt human nature. The tendency to steal, kill, fornicate, and such will not be altered. The law, with its punitive damages, can only instill fear but can't recreate humanity. Sometimes the laws are also perverse. In the name of equality, many nations have legalized sinful behavior akin to that of Sodom and Gomorrah and are incurring God's wrath. The bureaucracy, corruption, and inefficiencies of the system also delay many benefits and clearances that are instantly bestowed by the Lord as soon as we confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts.

Christ has set us free from the inane and impotent law and rendered us robust and holy. It would never occur to a saint to murder, steal, fornicate, cheat on taxes, and such as that is not the nature of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Consequently, a child of God is a model citizen that those still under the law can aspire to be like.
