Can A Moral Law Giver Be Behind The Universe

Moral Law Giver – Albert Norton, author

Atheists invoke morality in the very act of asserting that the presence of evil is the reason there can be no God. By invoking categories of moral good and moral evil, they have to be, at the same time, positing a moral law-giver, and it has to be a source of morality that is outside of biological development.

Does the Moral Law Require a Moral Lawgiver?

A natural law is a law of relationship between elements or forces of nature. But, the moral law is the law of relationship between moral beings. To say that the moral law can exist independent of God (Triune Inter-personal Being) is to claim that the moral law is not personal, or if it is personal, it isn't absolute and eternal.

Eternal and Natural Law: The Foundation of Morals and Law

1. With morals and natural law under siege today, and the liberal agendas cross hairs targeting our right to voice our moral convictions, we must be prepared to defend our positions legitimacy.1 Either we accept that the foundation of morals and law lies in Gods wisdom or we become mired in the quicksand of todays relativism. For moral order to exist, there must be an objective moral law easily perceived, common to all men and obliging to all equally. Otherwise, everything would be subject to mens fantasies or to the rulers whims, leading to social chaos and tyranny. Today we witness complete scorn for any moral rule that restrains individual behavior, especially in sexual matters, and a kind of legislative/judicial dictatorship imposing unnatural laws on society. On the one hand, liberal judges approve death by starvation, abortion rights and favor the homosexual agenda while on the other hand, they remove religious symbols from public places. Without an objective moral law, social order is impossible. Therefore, an objective moral law must exist to guide human behavior, and prevent that individual freedom and the good of society be endangered. Not only must moral law be objective but also be in accordance with mans nature, that is, connatural with him. If what the law commands, forbids and allows did not resonate deep within mans conscience, the only thing keeping man from breaking the law would be the fear of the police. In that case, morality would depend entirely on the number of policemen, and each man would need a policeman to watch him a tall times. But then, as Juvenal, a pagan Roman satirist, put it, Sed quis custodietipsos custodes? But who shall watch the watchmen? Let us consider another point. All law is a manifestation of the will of a legislator who imposes, commands, forbids, permits and punishes. If the law is only a fruit of mans will, how can it be imposed upon other men? Since we all have the same nature, the will of any man is equal to that of another, and no one man can impose his will on another. Therefore, for a man-made law to bind other men, it must proceed from a will superior to mans will. For a law to be effective, it must originate in the Gods divine will. Saint Paul makes this clear when he affirms that all authority comes from God: Let every soul be subject to higher powers: for there is no power but from God: and those that are, are ordained of God. Therefore he that resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God, and they that resist, purchase to themselves damnation.2 This is the solutiona human legislator is only the representative of the Supreme Legislator, and when we obey the will of the human legislator, we submit to Gods will, not to a mans will. The law that precedes all human law is called Eternal Law. How can we prove through reason the existence of Eternal Law? Human positive law must be based on natural law, and not on anyones whims, popular consensus or historical circumstances. When positive law is not based on natural law, it is not a true law. We are not obliged to obey it, and sometimes cannot obey it, as in Antigone. If we deny in theory or in practice the objectivity of moral law, we transform the moral act into a mere personal choice. Many declare, It is my conscience that decides what a moral act is. It is true that conscience guided by reason judges whether something is good or bad, but to judge correctly conscience must apply correct moral principles, which are the objective norms that must guide our actions. In other words, personal conscience does not create the norm of morality: it only applies the moral rules embodied in the natural law. Slowly but surely, to use Professor Corrêa de Oliveiras metaphor, more and more people are getting off the train of Revolution and turning toward the ideals of Counter-Revolution. More people are longing for something they have never really known: Christian Civilization. There is a widespread notion that we must return to the basics, to the essentials of life, to the Eternal Law and natural law, to the Truth. In a word, people are beginning to long for the promise of Our Savior, And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.13 And since without grace we can do nothing, what could be better than to resort continuously to Our Lady, who the Church calls, seat of the Incarnate Wisdom and throne of the Divine Word Himself?

God & Natural Law Answers in Genesis

1. Everything in the universe, every plant and animal, every rock, every particle of matter or light wave, is bound by laws which it has no choice but to obey. The Bible tells us that there are laws of nature—“ordinances of heaven and earth” (Jeremiah 33:25). These laws describe the way Godnormally accomplishes His will in the universe. God’s logic is built into the universe, and so the universe is not haphazard or arbitrary. It obeys laws of chemistry that are logically derived from the laws of physics, many of which can be logically derived from other laws of physics and laws of mathematics. The most fundamental laws of nature exist only because God wills them to; they are the logical, orderly way that the Lord upholds and sustains the universe He has created. The atheist is unable to account for the logical, orderly state of the universe. Why should the universe obey laws if there is no law-giver? But laws of nature are perfectly consistent with biblical creation. In fact, the Bible...
