God and Natural Law, Cicero, and Our Founding Fathers

"And there will not be different laws at Rome and at Athens,or different laws now and in the future, but one eternal and unchangeable law will be valid for all nations and for all times, and there will be one master and one rule, that is, God, over us all, for He is the author of this law, its promulgator, and its enforcing judge." --Marcus Tullius Cicero

The 4th Principle From "The 5000 Year Leap"
"Without Religion the Government
of a Free People Cannot be Maintianed"

From The Declaration of Independence
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

  1. Great quotes. The problem with natural law is people think it's based on the ideas or hearts of men. It's not. As Jefferson put it, it comes from the Creator. Natural Law is a very intriging topic.
