Presuppositional Law: Where we begin with law determines where we end.


What is law?

 

What is the basis for law?

 

What ultimately determines whether a thing is lawful or lawless?

 

What we often automatically and unconsciously presuppose about the origin and nature of law determines what we will allow ourselves to see and consider from that point forward. Our presuppositions about the essence of law dictate which “truths” we will acknowledge as legitimate and which “realities” we will allow on our radar.

The same goes for family, marriage, liberty, freedom, and life itself. That’s just how things work in God’s creation. Always has been. Always will be. There are no exceptions and there is no workaround. Everything in His creation is bound and defined by His Nature as revealed in His Word, whether or not we believe it, acknowledge it, or like it.

 

So it is that we understand that law is not a creation or invention of man. Law is not something that man can tweak or modify as he sees fit apart from the Nature of God as revealed in His Word.

 

Law belongs to God. It is a reflection of Him in His creation. It is born from, bound to, defined by and dependent upon His Nature.
