What is meant by laws of nature? The laws of nature are the principles which govern the natural phenomena of the world. That is, the natural world “obeys” the laws of nature. The universe obeys certain rules—laws to which all things must adhere. The natural law, known by reason, is the universal moral law of human nature for living well.
God and Natural Law
Natural laws are hierarchical; secondary laws of nature are based on primary laws of nature, which have to be just right for our universe to be possible. But, where did these laws come from, and why do they exist? Natural laws exist because the world has a Creator God who is logical and has imposed order on His universe.
The world of God
The laws have perpetually existed and applied to every object or form of energy or space that exists in our universe.
Shree Radhe Guru Maa says that “In the universe, every plant, and animal, every rock, every particle of matter or light wave, even the smallest thing is tied to laws.”
These laws describe the way God accomplishes His will in the universe. The most basic laws of nature exist only because God wills them to; they are the logical, systematic way that the Lord upholds and sustains the universe He has created. However, the laws of nature are perfectly consistent with God’s creation.
Remember that God created all things, and He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.
The natural law expresses the original moral sense which enables man to discern by reason the good and the evil, the truth and the lie.”
That’s why we need to understand it through our human reason and its confirmation in Divine Revelation.
