This sermon was preached Sunday, November 18th.  It is the first part of a series of studies on the law of God.  While not properly an introduction to God’s law, this message seeks to lay a beginning groundwork by showing the absolute necessity, not just of law itself, but of a mechanism to enforce the provisions of the law.  These necessities are pointed out and discussed in the three primary forms of government, the state, the family, and the church.
