This is one of the most important sermons Pastor Trewhella has ever preached given the state of of our nation. This sermon undoes the common song of the Pietist that we should "just preach the Gospel and any attempt at seeing good laws established in a nation is mere moralizing and an utter waste of time." This sermon demonstrates from Scripture that good laws which affirm or mirror the law and justice of God help men to see their need for Christ. But bad laws which contravene and spurn the law and justice of God help men to justify their sin. Hence, the laws of a nation go to the very salvation of men's souls.
