Volume of British & Biblical Laws (again)

The BBC reported that in 2010, 3,506 laws were introduced in the UK – that’s nearly 14 laws every working day.

A government report admits that between 1983 and 2009 Parliament approved over 100 criminal justice Bills, and over 4,000 new criminal offences were created.

In 2009, 23 Acts of Parliament were passed running to a total of 2247 pages.

Since the 3rd Century AD, there’s been a Jewish tradition mentioned in the Talmud that there are 613 commandments in the Hebrew Bible.  

In other words, the UK government could pass 5 times more laws in a year than God thought sufficient for ancient Israel and as a guide for his people for all time.
