Neuroscience as Legal Standing
Over the years, neuroscience has become increasingly cited as backing for legal proceedings, which troubles many judges who don’t know how much weight to give these claims. In the past, frontal lobe lobotomies and phrenology were considered valid scientific base for the prosecution and defense of various trials, only for the scientific community to discover these sciences were invalid.
On the shoulders of neuroscience, it may seem that eyewitness testimony may not even meet the standards of proof required, as false memories are easy to create in situations of high stress due to the recollection of a memory being enough to change it.

Good Person? Lets see 👇
Uses God's name in vain? Blasphemy
Committed adultery? Jesus said whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart (Matthew 5:28).
Sex out of marriage? Fornication
And that's just some of the commandments, so by your own admission your a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer, and fornicator at heart so if God judges you by His commandments on judgement day would you be innocent or guilty? Heaven or hell?
Do you understand the legal implications of what Jesus was fulfilling on the cross? He was paying the debt of our sins so we can leave the court room and be made righteous in the sight of God, and after He rose He breathed on to His disciples and said receive the Holy Spirit so we can be sealed with Christ's righteousness in the sight of God for eternity amen. Just like they used to put the blood in the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant and there sins were atoned for every year but Jesus atoned for our sins for eternity if you repent and put your faith in the Savior. We know that just because someone says sorry for a crime to a judge doesn't mean you go free, you still have to pay and that's what Jesus did. Trust Jesus like you trust a parachute and the moment you do that He will grant you with the free gift of eternal life.

Headed out of town this weekend? Stay focused and safe! If anything were to happen, call 911, then me. I’m here to help!
“I didn’t know it at the time but before my wife died, I was a part-time Christian,” he says. “Our church was in Richardson, and we lived in Trophy Club, so I stopped going as often.” His drinking, however, increased quite a bit, and before long he had a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) conviction on his record. It wasn’t the wake-up call he needed, and he soon had a second conviction. By then, he had made friends with the staff in the DWI court, including the judge. In typical Flash fashion, he made occasional visits to the courtroom just to say hello and brighten the place up with his positive attitude. So when the third DWI conviction came around, when most people would get substantial prison time, the judge gave Flash a break with a harsh probation, saying, “You’ve lived 60 years without anything on your record. Up until then you were perfect.” That was actually the wake-up call he needed.
“I fell on my knees and cried out to God,” he says. “When I look back now at where I came from, God brought me out of that situation.”
Flash began attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and continued working at the country club. On a Sunday afternoon, one of the country club members came in singing the lyrics to “Great I Am.” He asked him about the song and he invited him to come to Gateway. But he was reluctant. He said, “I can’t go to church because I work at 10:00 am.” But when he learned there was a 9:00 am service, he was out of excuses. On his first Sunday back in church—his first time to visit Gateway—Kari Jobe was leading worship and he was blown away by the worship experience and then Pastor Robert’s message. He decided right away to make Gateway his new church home.
After attending for a while, the same member who invited him told him he would be a perfect greeter. Flash looked into it and went to the Guest Experience training. Of course, he was a natural. “The more I got involved, the more people I got to see,” he says. “I love people and I believe God uses me to reach them.” Now Flash has been sober for three years and gives everyone who walks through the doors of his campus a world-class experience. “I am totally committed to my faith,” he says...
