Paul Stewart knew the law. He taught criminal justice at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. He held a bachelor’s degree, a law degree, and a master’s degree. Authorities arrested Stewart at his home the other day. It seems that when he left New York about 11 years ago, he also left eight felony convictions. The charges included burglary, larceny, and desertion from the Army. Interesting situation: Stewart knew the law, he taught the law, the problem was, he did not keep the law. This story often applies to religion. I may be a member of the church, professing to be a Christian. But, until I apply His truths to my life,
I am not His disciple. Jesus said, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” (Mat. 7:21).
