THE LEVEL PLAYING FIELD

Something all fair minded people want is the level playing field where all participants have an equal chance of success.

The government has entered into the process by giving some “extra help” and penalizing others.

While on the surface this might seemed to be fair, this handicapping of the more proficient only leads to sub par performance on the whole. The punishment of those who are successful through regulation and higher taxation tends to lead us into temptation to cheat or stop striving to maximize our efforts. This squelching of achievement only serves to diminish the effort of excellence.

In sports the professional basketball NBA decided to integrate more white players into a sport that was being dominated by the black athletes, for fear that white people would lose interest in the sport. So thanks to this policy you see several white faces on the court.

In order to further level the playing field the federal government has passed a myriad of new laws, and then regulators take over to interpret and apply the regulation as they see fit;

The General Accountability Office (GAO) reports that in the four fiscal years from 1996 to 1999, a total of 15,286 new federal regulations went into effect. Of these, 222 were classified as "major" rules, each one having an annual effect on the economy of at least $100 million.

As you can see the government is busy ordering our lives anew each year.

One would think that the whim of political correctness is not the best way to run a government.

This reminds me of when Adam and Eve tried to improve the level field laid out by GOD, and ended up being cast out of the Garden of Eden. The net result of this according to Bible teaching is each and every man has died spiritually, and is alienated from GOD.

While all were equal before GOD they certainly needed help for restoration.

So enter Jesus Christ who made it possible to be redeemed in the sight of GOD, but strange as it seems, not all will take advantage of GOD’S gift, even though every man feels the need for something within.

The scripture “All have sinned and come short of the kingdom of GOD” speaks of the need of man.

Another scripture answers, “Whosoever shall call upon the Lord shall be saved.”
