We serve a righteous and Holy God. This same righteous and Holy God has handed down laws that are clear and are not just designed to lower crime; rather they are there as for His Holy Will, Might and Right. These laws show people that the said acts are wrong, whether they lower the crime rate or not. The point is this should not be done and society has to see open rejection of sin and that the Holy, Righteous God is to be respected.
The article below should give us reason to reflect. How many people in the Anglosphere are never told the word “No”? How many are never told, “You cannot do that.” ? There are large segments of people who transgress the bounds and are never told no by parents, teachers or society at large that is heading for a more matriarchal mould (which will certainly end in the destruction of the Anglosphere).
There are people that are even given leniency on account of being wealthy as they “don’t understand their actions constitute criminal behaviour.” We have to return to a standard. When we see things like the article below, ask yourself: Do the people in the street know that certain things are wrong? If not, is it due to the fact that the laws do not reflect it?
A convicted paedophile was shot dead and hung from a crane in front of a crowd of people for the rape and murder of a four-year-old girl.

Hussein al-Saket, 22, was surrounded by crowds in Yemen who were there to witness the shocking public execution.
Judge Rajeh Ezzedine, who witnessed the execution, told AFP that Saket had been found guilty of abducting, raping and murdering the child.
Her uncle, Ali Ayedh, said Saket “took part in the search for the girl before being unmasked” during the police investigation.
He said Saket’s public execution would act as a “deterrent for criminals”.
Saket was placed face down on Tahrir square in Sanaa, before he was shot five times in the back by a policeman.
His lifeless body was then strung up on the end of a crane and put on display to the watching crowds.
It was the second such public execution in weeks after another man was executed in the same square for raping and murdering a three-year-old girl.
