Laws and governments are never morally neutral.

All their acts and enactments will be rooted in somebody’s sense of morality …

Whether right or wrong.

This doesn’t mean, however, that it’s in their power to make us virtuous …

That seldom works and often morphs into tyranny.

In God’s providence, though, they are suppose to protect us from evildoers …

So we have the freedom to pursue and live virtuous lives.
