Let me ask you a question…

Would you break the law to save or help a loved one?

  1. That’s a tough question. If do nearly everything in my power to protect them from harm. But, if one of my kids breaks the law, it’d be wrong of me to hide that. We preach accountability to them all the time, and if I were to break the law to keep them from being accountable, that’s a two-for-one bad example.

  2. That’s really two questions. Save is very different from help. I would break the law to SAVE my son. Yup. I would. I make no apologies. To help? Help from what?

    Given the information in your question I’d say that as far as ‘help’ goes, probably not. Depending on what kind of help he needed. For example…I’d speed to get him to the hospital but i wouldn’t rob someone to help him pay for school. 😉

  3. It depends on what I’m saving them from. If it is a situation that they got into that involved breaking the law, I might not step in and let them suffer their consequences. If it was a life threatening situation, I almost certainly would break the law if there was a chance of saving a life.

  4. If the law wasn’t enforcing other ethical standards or protecting more people than the friend or loved one, then yes. It’s like when Jesus healed on the Sabbath or the disciples plucked grain on the Sabbath when they were hungry. Or when David and those with him ate the consecrated bread. Of course Jesus didn’t really break the law, but He was perceived to. But my point is that the law is made to help people. If the law becomes an obstacle to helping someone who needs it, then I think the lawmakers themselves would heartily make an exception.
