Saudi Arabia Courts

Skeptical of the Equity in Saudi Courts: Some rapists get "light" sentences while a female found in a car with males who were not her relative gets six months in jail plus 200 lashes. Which do you consider the greater "crime"?

Compare this injustice and inequity with what is said of the Lord and his kingdom:

Isa 32:1 "See, a king will reign in righteousness
and rulers will rule with justice. "

Isa 9:7 "Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David's throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this."

... How bright the glories of the Lord are when contrasted with the fallenness of this world.
