God’s Law is spiritually executed upon the soul and often not evident or obvious or seen. The transgressor-sinner may not connect the execution of God’s law to his sin/debt in this dimension. It is a domain of the Creator and expressed in his testament.
Deuteronomy 19:21 And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.
If the law is transgressed, an equal punishment is forthcoming in one dimension or another. Likewise, if you forgive, you may be forgiven.
Man’s (rule of) Law is one that is executed upon the PERSON for all to see. A PERSON is a legal entity and legal fiction who is considered according to status. A man may "act" in the capacity of a PERSON and thereby be "subject" to the jurisdiction and execution of the “Rule of Law”. When he acts in this fictional capacity, within the secular (Godless) Rule of Law, he is assumed to be functioning without his God given unalienable rights (because he/she is a spiritless entity). The rights he does get while acting through the fiction, all come from man – his creator.
The desire of one to see another’s punishment would be the choice of a “natural man”, one overwhelmed by a lust for vengeance, one who judges. One with forgiveness or faith in the spiritual execution of law would not have a lust for vengeance. So, we have two law-forms here, non-secular and secular. You may choose to believe in Creation, a Supreme God, Scripture, Forgiveness and the Spiritual Execution of Sins upon the Soul. Or, you may choose Atheism, the Rule of Law, and Execution of Statutory Offenses upon the PERSON. To believe in both is to be double minded.
Revenge is so absolutely the peculiar of heaven, that no consideration can impower, even the best men, to assume the execution of it. (South's Sermons).
To consent to the human body of law is to consent to a PERSONA and a false God. One is subject to his masters punishment. If one has two masters, does this mean one gets double punishment to go along with his double mind?
The next level, to a new creature, is attained through forgiveness, through being in Christ.... not through pledging allegiance to a secular nation and thereby being in that secular nation.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
