The Need for Many Laws
There is some complaint about so
many laws, and wt» admit that there
axe so many that nobody seems to
know about them all, and most folks
do not seem to care aboyt many of
them. J>ome respect them all and
there are 1 yet a few that respect
reither laW nor gospel.
And yet how are we going to get
along without theft)"-?
In our early civilization, we hail no
law whatever. Adam did not even
have to tell anybody to keep off of
his corns. But just as soon as Eve
came along, law was necessary. So
God made a law and a penalty.
The world moved on and the na
tions multiplied until it became neces
sary to make more laws. And then
there got to be so many people that
it became necessary to make a traffic
law, which required that when you
met a man you had to walk to the
right side. Walking was then the
only means of travel, yet law was
necessary to keep men from butting
New inventions were added, and
folks began to move about in little
boats. This made it necessary to pass
a red-light law, requiring boats to
display them as danger signals. Lat
er on, ih the course of time, the boat*
grew bigger, and we had to have
laws governing the high seas traffic
and erftablishipg the "three-mile
Of course, murder had been com
mitted before this, when one brother
had killed another, causing the need
fer the "Thou shalt not kill" law.
Some years later some imp invent
ed an unruly cuss that
it has become necessary to pass laws
everywhere and of every kind to sup
press it in its effort to dethrone or
Prior to this time, the larger num
ber of the laws were not written in
books as statutory regulations, but
came direct from the mouth of the
king. If he was good, the people had

When we remember that the very
first law that wa.s ever parsed is as
important today as it was then and
that most of those since passed are
very necessary for our. government,
we doubt if we could get along very
well without practically all the laws
\vc now have; and we seem to need
even more than we now have, or some
strong amendments to some of the
present laws. ,
There is only one thing that will
remove the need for law; that is to
build the government on the basis of
religion and keep it there.
When men do right, they offend no
law. They are protected by the law.
