The Supreme Law

In every age of the civilized world there has existed some form of law for the maintenance of order, which was established for the protection of government itself and for the benefit of the governed. Hence it is that the fundamental law underlies the statutes of all civilized countries. It is easily recognized that this is derived from the oldest known law, the law of God, known as the Decalogue, which was delivered to the Children of Israel by Moses.

Modern law is for the protection of society, of mankind. It is for the protection of the person, property, and liberty of every man, woman, and child. It is entitled to the respect and obedience of all; otherwise the very foundation of society would be undermined and the rule of chaos would be inaugurated. Such law is the material or physical means by which civilized peoples are governed. Under the safety of such law, a man seeks to attain material wisdom, power, and wealth, hoping to gain through these that which is by him considered to be happiness. In reality all true happiness consists in being in harmony with God, but mankind seek the false concept and seek happiness in matter instead of Spirit.
