What do you think about correction? Do you receive it willingly or do you resist it. Why do we walk in constant error and fight against right. Error is a characteristic of human kind and results from not having benchmarks or standards of right and wrong or absolutes. Absolutes means there is a value or principle which is universally regarded as valid and not diminished in any way. Some cultures walk and live in error. For instance I was watching YouTube video that the mothers of the tribe were beat for the son to walk into manhood https://youtu.be/t9kJDHykNtQ, error. There is also articles that in at least one of our states they allow marriage to children (Pennsylvania), which is now being corrected https://patch.com/pennsylvania/yardley/amp/28115114/warren-bill-end-pa-child-marriage-passes-house.These are just a few just to make a point. One was far away in Ethiopia and one was near, Pennsylvania. So are we willing to accept correction in our own lives. What are benchmarks? Benchmarks are; “a standard or point of reference against which things may be compared or assessed.” Without a solid benchmark, the reference point starts with a man. Whatever a man says is right (according to what man it’s coming from) and it will be the starting point. That’s why the Bible says Isa 9:6;“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Remember the part that says the government will be upon His shoulders. And it is. He is the Benchmark whether we like it or not and when we deviate, we get into these errors small and great. Without the “Word” all we have is a flawed man to guide us. Most laws are grounded in the word of God. A perfect God is much better than an imperfect man.
