Today`s Maxim is pretty short and sweet but in the right context of things with the recent euthanasia debate.
In Deuteronomy 29:19, God pleads with Israel to choose life. They would show God that they chose life by obeying his laws: something they failed to do and, as consequence, eventually were stripped of their right to possess the land.
It is clear, God wants men to choose life over death.
“Saepe viatorim nova non vetus orbita fallit“. Translation: Often it is the new road, not the old one, which deceives the traveller.
With the Supreme Court of Canada recently approving the ‘assisted suicide’ issue, according to biblical principles and maxims of law, we, the Canadian people, are being deceived by a new road that leads to self destruction.
