There are physical laws that govern the universe. יתןת has bound the
universe to these laws in the sense that He is the one that set them
into motion. יתןת is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent, and these
laws of יתןת never change simply because יתןת never changes.
There are also spiritual laws that govern the universe. יתןת has bound
all of His creation to these spiritual laws in the sense that He is
also the one that set them into motion. יתןת is omniscient,
omnipresent and omnipotent, and these spiritual laws of יתןת also
never change simply because יתןת never changes. Modern Christianity as
well as Jewish tradition, would have us think and act as if these
spiritual laws are of no significant effect. To the Jew they are a
tool for "judging" outsiders and to the Christian they are too often
set aside as archaic, having been given over to the age of "grace". No
interpretation of this aside from "no law" fits with such a modern
Christian agenda. One should hardly believe that יתןת wishes us to act
as if there were no law!
"This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the
lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the
Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other:
so that you cannot do the things that ye would. But if you be led of
the Spirit, you are not under the law.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there
is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with
the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk
in the Spirit."
Then there are man's laws. The law of man is the rule established by
man-made authority. Montaigne wrote that "the laws maintain their
credit, not because they are just, but because they are laws. They are
often made by fools and more often by men who, out of hatred for
equality, are lacking in equity, but always by men: vain and unstable
