Some say, ‘Religion and politics are subjects that not talk about.’ Even if you feel that way, it is in your best interest that you be informed about what is happening regarding religion and politics and how this may come to affect your own life. Further, by referring to the Bible on this matter, you will find that God has things to say about religion’s mixing in politics and about where it is leading.(2 Cor. 6:14)

How is 'law' a 'received standard'? It's a cornerstone of society.

I've never had the cause to use philosophy or religion as a crutch to get me through any situation. I've always relied on my own wit and guile, and common sense to get mew through and I just can't understand why others can't do the same.
//How is 'law' a 'received standard'? //

What else is it? The law acts as a guideline to what is accepted in society. Without it there would be conflicts between social groups and communities. It is pivotal that we all follow the law in our individual lives. It is therefore a received standard.
Yes, but it’s not something we can really use as a crutch, is it? It’s there when we need it but if we’re feeling down or we have family troubles the law isn’t there as a helping hand.

Crutch is a form of self-deception that causes a person to ignore reality and prevents him from reasoning logically.

When Paul wrote to those in the congregation in Rome, he did not want them to believe in God just because he told them to. Rather, he encouraged them to consider the evidence that God is real. He wrote: “His [God] invisible qualities are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they [those who deny God’s authority] are inexcusable.” (Romans 1:20) Paul used a similar line of reasoning when writing his letter to the Hebrews.
Of course, every house is constructed by someone,” he said, “but he that constructed all things is God.” (Hebrews 3:4)

So a true Christian Faith based on accurate knowledge of God becomes, not a crutch,.
‘Crutch is a form of self-deception that causes a person to ignore reality and prevents him from reasoning logically’

Indeed. You then kinda spoilt it by quoting some of the *** which is self deceiving.

Zacs--There is, to my ordinary, common-sense mind, but one plausible answer, and that is that these laws demand belief in a Lawgiver, which I again call God.
No such entity as god, load of old cobblers.
//No such entity as god, load of old cobblers.//

It's a privilege to be in the company of such erudite, theologically astute minds.
I wonder where such knowledge, with such conviction and certainty, can be extolled in such a short time?
Truly amazing.
All right clever clogs, prove god exists, the onus is on you believers.

You can, of course ,ask me to prove the existence of the tooth fairy.

Touche, as they say.
