An Op Ed: "Not Guilty"

"Not Guilty"
By Philip Smith

The Zimmerman case ended in a verdict of not guilty.

The facts of the case were very clear.

Florida law was upheld.

Was justice served? I believe so. 

Your instruction as a jury is to NOT consider your own opinion, prejudices, or outside influences. Your instruction is to follow the law without interpretation.

As a member of a jury, you ask yourself,

"What is the law?"

"Was it followed?"

You answer, "Yes." or "No."

This jury did that.

We should apply this to our lives.

What is the law? 

The law is written on our hearts.

Hebrews 10:16 
"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them."
How do we follow it (the law)?

Luke 10:27
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself."
If we do this ... Our verdict is also returned,

"Not Guilty".
