These historically unprecedented rains not only brought devastating flash flooding to the mountain and canyon areas, but the massive amounts of rainfall coalesced into the Big Thompson Cache La Poudre and St. Vrain Rivers, all of which erupted into raging floodwaters themselves.

Floods Devastate Colorado (continued from page 1) upriver drenching rains, bringing record flooding to all the counties through which the South Platte flows eastward from Weld County all the way into Nebraska. On September 12, President Obama declared Boulder, El Paso, and Larimer Counties as Federal Disaster Areas, with Boulder County then declared a Major Disaster Area on September 14. The following day, President Obama declared Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Clear Creek,

Denver, Fremont, Jefferson, Morgan, Logan, Pueblo, Washington, and Weld Counties to be Federal Disaster Areas. From Boulder on down, the floodwaters have breached sanitation facilities resulting in human waste contamination of the flows, to which animal waste contamination was added in the rural parts of the respective flood areas. With the waters finally receding, to the grim devastation has been added the specter of disease from the contaminated muds and debris left behind in the flood-hit municipalities, towns, and farmlands.

Over 200 miles of state roads need extensive repair, along with 50 state bridges either destroyed or heavily damaged. Statewide repair estimates are already approaching $2 billion, with winter fast approaching to impede the reconstruction efforts. One godsend has been the extremely low loss of life, but of course, any loss of life is too much, and the lives of many Coloradans have been changed forever by the events of this single week in September 2013.

12 COUNTIES ADDED TO COLORADO DISASTER DECLARATION FOR EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE Main Content Release date: September 15, 2013 Release Number: NR-001 DENVER – The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management announced today that 12 additional counties have been added to the September 12, 2013, presidential emergency disaster declaration for the Colorado flooding in Boulder, El Paso and Larimer counties. The additional counties include Adams, Arapahoe, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Fremont, Jefferson, Morgan, Logan, Pueblo, Washington and Weld counties. Emergency assistance is designed to supplement state and local efforts to provide life-saving and life-sustaining measures to areas affected by the severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides. Direct federal assistance includes a range of assistance undertaken by federal partners, including urban search and rescue teams, air operations, food, water, cots, generators, and emergency flood control measures. In a separate action on Saturday, Sept. 14, President Barack Obama also declared a major disaster declaration for Boulder County. The President’s declaration makes federal assistance available to individuals in Boulder County for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners in their recovery.

What Must I Do? (Part 5) (The following is excerpted from Chapter 7 of the book Ready To Be Healed, by William Berning, Copyright 2008, Xlibris Press.) Still, the Bible has much to say about law and laws. In the spirit of engaging potential counterarguments from Scripture, let us examine several possibly difficult passages written by Paul himself. In Chapter 5, we cited the following writing of Paul in Romans 5: 12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned— 13 for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come. [Italics added] It would certainly appear in v. 13 that Paul is stating that there was a period of time when there was no law, which would argue strongly against the conclusions we have drawn on the nature of spiritual laws. Yet, this turns out to be quite easily reconciled with our findings, and in more than one way. The first way is simply to realize that while “but sin is not taken into account when there is no law” can be taken as meaning that there was a time when there was no law, it does not have to be taken as that. In and of itself, it states a truth that when no law is present sin is not taken into account, but that is not the same thing as saying it states that there has actually been a time when no law was present. Interestingly enough, the Jewish theologians of Paul’s day and numerous Christian theologians since then have taken it to mean that there have been times when the law is absent. We can see from all that we have developed up to this point that we would not agree with this understanding of Paul’s statement, but can we disagree legitimately? Let us continue in our examination. The second way to take Paul’s statement “but sin is not taken into account when there is no law” is as a highly condensed argument within his overall argument. By this we mean that Paul could be saying: Sin was in the world before the Mosaic law was given. “Sin is not taken into account when there is no law.” -orSin is only taken into account when there is law. Therefore, since sin was in the world before the Mosaic law was given and sin is only taken into account when there is law, there must have been law present in the world before the Mosaic law was given. In this understanding, Paul is simply providing a restatement that there is a law to which mankind is answerable before God, apart from the laws revealed in the revelations of the Old Testament, a law which results in the condemnation of sin. And, of course, this is the position we have found the New Testament to be taking on law all along. In this understanding, Paul is stating “but sin is not taken into account when there is no law” as a general spiritual truth regarding the relationship between sin and law, but not as a specific statement that there was a time when there was no law. A third way to understand it is by providing a few simple facts surrounding Paul’s writing here. As we already

pointed out, one of the common Jewish teachings of his day was just what Paul records here: “But sin is not taken into account when there is no law.” As we have seen, the application of this teaching as meaning that there was a time when there was no law is what Paul is engaging. If we recall what we saw discussed in At the Door Knocking about 1 Corinthians displaying a pattern of Paul “quoting” an erroneous teaching and then immediately correcting it, we can also see this pattern here. Paul quotes the common saying and immediately provides a decisive refutation of the false application. The logic he is going to overturn goes something like this: Sin is not taken into account when there is no law [the common Jewish teaching], and the law was not received until Moses [gave the law], therefore sin was not taken into account until Moses [gave the law]. Paul takes this argument and defeats it as follows: Sin causes death. All have died (including those who died before Moses gave the law). Therefore, all have sinned (including those who died before Moses gave the law). Therefore, sin has always been taken into account, regardless of when Moses gave the law. Therefore, taking the teaching “sin is not taken into account when there is no law” to mean that “there was a time where there was no law” is a false application. Paul quite elegantly shows that the unbroken history of all men dying because of sin (though as we demonstrated, Jesus died because of the sins of others) is proof that all men have sinned, regardless of the timing of Moses receiving the Law. But note that Paul is also strongly reinforcing his teaching on the universality of law in the human race, a teaching we have examined at length in these chapters. Since sin is disobedience to the Law of God, Paul is also saying this: Disobeying God’s Law causes death. All have died (including Adam). Therefore, all have disobeyed God’s Law. So we see yet again that Paul is teaching that there is at least some aspect of God’s Law which is so sufficiently understandable for all of humanity that, that even without the written Word of God, all of humanity has violated it and hence all of humanity has sinned and died because of it. And again, this is what we have found repeatedly during our study on spiritual laws. It should be noted that, historically, the disagreements around understanding this part of Paul’s teaching in Romans 5 have revolved around the concepts of original sin and the nature of accounting for sin in humanity. The latter includes how sin is reckoned against the very young and those suffering from mental disability, which we discussed briefly earlier. To fully elaborate on how our studies of this impact these centuries-old discussions is beyond the scope of this writing, but it is very interesting to see how many highly disputed matters fall right into place when one categorizes the spiritual laws in the ways we have done here. Yet we do need to address at least the following for the present. As we saw earlier, Paul makes the following statements in Romans 7:

7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what sin was except through the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “Do not covet.” 8 But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of covetous desire. For apart from law, sin is dead. 9 Once I was alive apart from law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died. 10 I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death. 11 For sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death. 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good. We have consistently made the case that pride is the root of all evil, and that the first deception we embrace in our pride is that we can be right and God can be wrong. We see this played out here by Paul, in his description of his own life. When Paul says “once I was alive apart from law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died,” he is not saying that there was a time when there was no law of any kind in existence, he is saying that there was a time when he as a person had not encountered law in a conscious way. While we are not saying that pride is all that is meant by sin in these verses, it is very interesting indeed to think of it in those terms, where appropriate. Let us substitute ‘pride’ for Paul’s personal response of ‘sin’ in several places and see how this looks: What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what pride was except through the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “Do not covet.” But pride, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of covetous desire. For apart from law, sin is dead. Once I was alive apart from law; but when the commandment came, pride sprang to life and I died. I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death. For pride, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death. So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good. We chose to leave ‘sin’ where Paul was stating a general principle about sin, but to substitute ‘pride’ for it with respect to his own personal experience. And what we found was that the substitution worked very well. Paul’s fallen pride, as in his intrinsic rebellion to God, “came to life” when God made clear what His will in a matter was. And it was Paul’s pride that led him to reject God’s command, just as it did for Adam and Eve in the Garden, and does for each and every one of us today. Carried a bit further, a very good candidate for what is referred to as our “sin nature” is the interaction between our fallen pride, God’s judgments about our desire for control, His curses (all as we discussed in Chapter 3), and the arrival of His commandment: Pride and Judgment and Curses plus Commandment always creates Rebellion.

U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier Hosts Denver Area Community Leaders Including Jie Zheng In recognition of his commitment to diversity and inclusion, Jie “Jay” Zheng, the owner of Volcano Restaurant in South DTC, recently joined a selected group of diverse community leaders for a once in a lifetime experience known as a “Distinguished Visitor Aircraft Carrier Embarkation.” It was a special overnight trip to fly aboard USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), one of nine U.S. Navy’s nuclear powered aircraft carriers operating at sea to experience an ar-

rested (tailhook) landing and catapult take off, and to view all aspects of shipboard operations and life onboard this floating city of 5,000 servicemen and women. Upon return from this two-day round the clock trip, the members enthusiastically agreed to a reunion dinner to share what each viewed as the highpoint of their visit. The group assembled at Volcano Asian Cuisine for a truly superior meal. Hosted by owner,

Jie “Jay” Zheng, a highly respected leader in the Asian and diversity community, a common discussion theme was how to assist Colorado’s youth and military veterans with viable mentoring and career options. Jay Zheng said, “As a master’s degreed engineer with an MBA, the precision of motion and management skills that I observed through shipboard operations defines the term, “Running a tight ship.”
