Credence For Social Mores

"All shall be equal before the law: justice graffiti in Cape Town, South Africa" by Ben Thomas Sutherland  CC BY 2.0

 Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.
Isaiah 1:17

...and on and on.  The Bible has been the source of our nation's mores since its first written copy on the mountain.  Both factions, Liberal and Conservative, agree on these social mores above and yet people still question them and expect others to take care of them. 
 "I'm too busy.   Surely these don't apply to me.  I'm above the law.  I can do what I want.  It's a free country.  Let someone else do it." 
 These seem to be the thoughts of the people of the world.  More and more the laws given by God are being questioned in today's society.  Right is not taught, it is questioned.  We're in for trouble if we disobey God's laws.  He turned His back on His chosen people, Israel.  He can turn His back on us, too.
