Woe Unto Ye Lawyers! – David J. Stewart

Originally from here.

Woe to you lawyers! For you load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers.                               –Jesus in Luke 11:46

I have always thought, from my earliest youth ’til now, that the greatest scourge an angry Heaven ever inflicted upon an ungrateful and a sinning people was an ignorant, a corrupt, or a dependent judiciary.                                               –Chief Justice John Marshall

As a Christian, I do not hate anyone. In the legitimate case of someone who has hurt another person, and refuses to make restitution, I can understand the need for a lawyer; HOWEVER, in most situations, lawyers hurt innocent people, such as in divorce court. Only God knows how many marriages have been broken up, how many husbands have committed suicide, and homes have been destroyed, because of some greedy lawyer. 

A vengeful wife simply needs to hire a lawyer, alleging domestic abuse, and all the hordes of Hell will come down on that poor husband. Lawyers go for the jugular vein. 

This is how the system works. It is ruthless; but the average husband doesn’t understand this. So what do you think goes through a poor husband’s mind when the sheriff serves him a summons to divorce court, telling him that his wife wants everything he owns—his kids, his home, his car, alimony, child support, and a restraining order preventing him from even visiting his own home and kids? Suicide? That would be a reasonable conclusion. This is what “The System” is doing to husbands today, and women are being encouraged by a godless communist system to file for divorce for any number of frivolous reasons

Proverbs 19:22: “A poor man is better than a liar.”

Proverbs 17:23: “A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.”

Men are being absolutely crucified by a godless, ruthless, inhumane, hateful legal system which is controlled by a feminist agenda. There is NO injustice any more wrong than divorce court. It is rebellious wives who are at fault; not the husbands who have a Biblical right to rule over them (Genesis 3:16). I am not condoning abuse, which is what every feminist alleges. I am simply saying that it is much too easy for people to divorce these days. There is a lot of money in divorce. The bank keeps the house. The judge and lawyers make money. [And lawyers often win cases because they bribe judges with campaign donations–ed. John Boruff]. The wife gets alimony and child support. But the husband pays dearly, loses his life savings, and then some…Lawyers no doubt shift the blame on the sue-happy public; but it’s the ambulance-chasing lawyers that have nurtured this type of behavior today. Proof of this fact can be found no further than your TV screen. We frequently see ambulance-chasing lawyers on TV, begging for us to call them to sue someone…The legal profession is a tough business and I don’t envy the lawyers who are paid to handle people’s problems. It gets ugly. If the world were a loving place and everyone did the right thing, then there wouldn’t be a need for lawyers. Thank God for the experienced lawyers who are there when needed?
