A Nation of Law—God’s Law

Posted By Foundation for American Christian Education, Tuesday, February 6, 2018

William Blackstone, “father of the legal profession”, said:

Thus when the Supreme Being formed the universe, and created matter out of nothing, He impressed certain principles upon that matter, from which it can never depart, and without which it would cease to be.

Blackstone noted that all creatures, even plants and animals, are governed by certain unerring principles, or laws. Man must be subject to these laws also, because he is entirely dependent upon his Creator for his very being.

Natural law—our dependence upon God for our being—is discovered by observation and reason. Our founders boldly stated in the Declaration of Independence that we are dependent on the "Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”

Ponder: We are entirely dependent upon God’s law as the heart of liberty and self-government that our nation was founded upon.

Excerpted from Nation Makers: the Art of Self-Government, by Verna M. Hall and Rosalie J. Slater, edited by Carole G. Adams. Previously published as Rudiments of America’s Christian History by the Foundation for American Christian History (FACE), pages 60-62.
