 Between religion and law it has always been a close relationship, although they are two totally different concepts. The connecting element is represented by the human being. Religion teaches us to be good, to respect our peers and so does the Law as a legal entity. By laws we have to contribute to the social order. In anyconstitutional state, laws are made to be respected, and he who violates them must take responsibility for their own acts. Therefore, it comes out naturally that both religion and Law have only one goal: to arrange, toestablish standards of decency, in order to live in a sinless society like the Church may say or no offence societylike the Law would say.
Key words:
religion, law, morality, crime, sin, justice, punishment, law, church, rehabilitation, publicorder.
 For a long time a question arises: what is right is also moral? And inverted. The answer is not that  simple. Not infrequently happens, that what to a defender of law seems to be right, after analyzing the evidencein his possession, to be also moral. Why? Very simple, because even those compelling (irrefutable) evidence canbe false or counterfeit. But what seems to be moral, most of the time is also right
