        Perhaps it would have been better stated as, "Would you EVER break the law to protect a loved one?"
        Okay, I voted yes. I think this is the heart of the idea that Mercy trumps the Law. I remember when I first came to TOL, I didn't really get that, and it was YOU, Tambora, that got me to understand it.

          Yes.

          Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
          By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

              Great. Then you should have no problem with immigrants crossing the border to save their loved ones.

              Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

                But that would mean their children are innocent and worthy of protection ....

                is a fragile thing.

                Easy to break, Easy to lose
                and one of the hardest things to
                ever get back.

                      The question is too vague so I cannot answer.

                      BUT: If the question were, would I drag my kid to a foreign country and illegally sneak in because I don't like my country, the answer would be NO: Only an idiot moron would do that

                          Would you break the Law for any reason?

                            Oh, this is such a fun question!!

                            Would I rob a bank to afford a life saving surgery?

                            Would I sneak them into a foreign country to get medical care?

                            Would I take up arms against my own government to prevent my loved ones from being sent to internment camps?

                            Would I assault a bully to stop behavior that could lead to a child commuting suicide?

                            I answered yes because there are some laws that I would break.
                            Galatians 5:22-23 (New International Version)

                            But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

                            What are my fruits today?

                            "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

                              You don't know.
                              You are against God.
                              You want to do the right thing.
                              Maybe the precedent of saving a life would as a concept be a good guide, but then you need obedience after you are convinced. God's Law is good. You don't understand or you promote creative thinking. Art and morals are different. Obedience to God's Commandments is of a different class not being immoral.
                              What is the right thing to do? To obey God.

                              Then it's not about morals, but obedience. Not performance based action.

                              Hopefully this clears up for you and your readers.

                              What do you see here?
