According to the Library of Congress, “In an example of a failed attempt to tally up the number of laws on a specific subject area, in 1982 the Justice Department tried to determine the total number of criminal laws. In a project that lasted two years, the Department compiled a list of approximately 3,000 criminal offenses. This effort, headed by Ronald Gainer, a Justice Department official, is considered the most exhaustive attempt to count the number of federal criminal laws. . . Mr. Gainer characterized this fruitless project: “[y]ou will have died and [been] resurrected three times,” and still not have an answer to this question.
When asked which is the greatest commandment, Jesus replied: “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:36-40
All will agree that ten rules are much easier to follow and be held accountable to than the millions of laws that now govern our society that even the lawmakers are unable to count.
H.R. 5 the Student Success Act is 590 pages long.
The renumbered H.R. 555 now H.R. 866 the Universal Prekindergarten and Early Childhood Education Act is only 4 pages long and describes how the money allocated be spent, saying little about how the children should and will be educated.
Proverbs 22:6 states, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
In fact, that particular chapter of Proverbs is a blueprint for how we can live together in love and prosperity.
There is the Bible which is difficult to read and understand and mans laws which are difficult to read and understand, neither of which are followed to the letter.
However, the ten commandments are easy to read and understand and, if followed, and taught to our children, there is no doubt that they will grow to become loving prosperous adults.
