Over 400 bills have been proposed in the Kentucky General Assembly this year and there's an interesting thread that runs through many of the high-profile bills. Here are a few issues they address: the opioid crisis, human trafficking, child abuse, revenge porn, sexual harassment, sexually transmitted disease education and and suicide prevention. You may notice a trend. The laws point to the brokenness in our world and the need for moral boundaries. King Solomon once said "When a land transgresses, it has many rulers, but with a man of understanding and knowledge, its stability will long continue." (Prov. 28:2) In other words, when people lose their moral compass and overstep boundaries, there is a need for more laws, more bureaucracy, more government. But this can be avoided, if personal responsibility and self-government is embraced.
