God's Absolute Laws

Updated on December 10, 2018
PlanksandNails profile image

PlanksandNails' goal is to write articles that pique discussion and look at things from a different perspective.

Our reality must follow rules that do not change and within their nature these laws must be obeyed because there is no exception to the rule. If we didn't adhere to these laws, we would not survive as humans. We can objectively see the effect of these laws in action, explain them on paper and even mathematically measure them.

These rational laws govern the world we live in and what science rests upon. Important discoveries about our reality have been made because of them concerning the world we live in.

Oops!
Oops!

The Laws

It is quite evident that the laws of logic exists as concepts. The law of non-contradiction states that something cannot be both true and not true at the same time. Without the laws of logic, it would be hard to function properly in life. Important knowledge about these immaterial laws are knowing whether or not it is safe to jump out of a plane without a parachute at a high elevation or understanding why lemonade is safer to drink than gasoline.

The laws of mathematics are important for daily life too because it helps us to do everyday things such as banking. If you went into the bank and asked the teller for two one-hundred dollars bills and she gave you two one dollar bills instead, how would would you be able make distinction between the representation of the amounts without an understanding of mathematics?

The laws of science are used to describe the function or the effect on matter. Through repeated observations in the same conditions using the laws of physics and mathematics, we can predict what will happen. We should know that we will break our legs if we jump off a high elevated roof of a large building or by experiencing a hot stove, we learn not to touch it again in the same manner.

We must use the laws of logic, mathematics and science to function be able to function in a proper and safe manner every day. We may choose to deny them, but it would be to our folly.

Morality

When it comes to absolute moral laws of God, the skeptic will disagree even though they will not contest the laws of science. To say that absolute moral laws do not exist would be saying that rape and child molestation is not absolutely wrong. The affect on anyone who has gone gone through an experience like this would never say that it could be a good thing. If this was perpetrated against you, your family or someone else you love, it would be an absolutely horrible experience. It never has and never will be considered something that is good.

Absolute morality is not about what society dictates or what man tries to imposes on on another. The repeatable observation and consequence of immoral behaviours proves without a doubt that rape and child molestation is absolutely wrong. Morality is beyond the confines of society because everyone knows it is wrong. It would be irrational and illogical to think otherwise.

Doot do do dooo!
Doot do do dooo!

Intangible Concepts

These laws that we apply and understand through repetition are concepts that are immaterial or invisible. The laws of logic, mathematics, science and morality are not made of matter and cannot be found tangibly in nature. Morality cannot be sent in an envelope to your grandmother in Australia. You can send her a written representation of it, but that is not the same thing.

The nature of these invisible laws are universal to our reality. One plus one equals two no matter where we are. It would be illogical to say that you want one plus one to equal twenty-five. You can believe this you want to, but it doesn't change the fact that it equals two. Beliefs change, but absolutes don't. Absolute morals laws do not change because of our opinion of them do or because we want them to be something different.

Somebody may try putting a cape on and jumping off a skyscraper, but it will not make them Superman because they believe they can defy a certain universal law. The repeated observation of defying the law reveals that it will lead to certain death.

Absolutes

Putting a soda in your refrigerator will not make it become hot coffee when you wake up tomorrow morning. If the conditions are the same, the properties will stay the same today and into the next. Likewise, it is an absolute that child molestation is wrong and it will not change because some pervert wants it to be good.

Certain truths are absolute because they are repeatable and consistent with our reality. Relative truth and opinions resolve back to a person who makes an individual man-made claim. It is a relative opinion that is always changing, but absolute truths do not change regardless of opinions. Absolute truths are proven by that which is absolute in itself.

Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. – Psalm 139:7-10

For I, the Lord, have not changed – Malachi 3:6

The absolute laws are set in place so that God can fulfill His purposes. His absolutes are fixed in heaven and on earth. To deny these laws is to deny the source of these laws and render them to man's relative opinions about them.

Thus says the LORD: If I have not established my covenant with day and night and the fixed order of heaven and earth - Jeremiah 33:25

The source of absolute laws come from God who characteristics are eternal and unchanging. We cannot deny the absolutes that are contained within His laws.

Do you believe morality comes from God?

      Yes! That is true! These laws will never change. People try to put God in a box, and God doesn't live in a box. God is eternal and his laws are unchanging and constant. For God, Himself, is complex, unchanging and constant. As you stated, these laws are immaterial. 'It is what it is', no matter what people believe.

      Danast,

      What is important to understand is that beliefs may change, but absolute truth doesn't. Just like beliefs, feelings and emotions change like the wind, but the facts don't. Unfortunately, even when there is enough reasonable evidence presented, there are people who willfully blinded to see it.

      Very interesting! So many people would rather believe a lie than believe the truth. I've heard people say, "Reality is what you make of it." This is not always true. There are certain laws (truths) that we will never be able to change. This world is very deceptive, and I fear it's only going to get worse.

      Lifegate,

      There are lot of skeptics out there trying to refute absolute truths even though they can be clearly perceived in our reality. It seems pretty clear and simple, but there are those who don't want them to fit into their reality and attempt to find a loophole somewhere. I'd rather stand on the absolutes than the shifting sands of relativism.
