PRESERVATION THROUGH OBEDIENCE TO DIVINE LAW

In Scriptural teaching the promise of salvation is conditional upon obedience to divine law. Speaking to men through the prophet Jeremiah, God said (Jer. 7:23), "Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people." The voice of God utters the Word of God, and His Word acts as law to His universe.

From the beginning of human institutions men have heard this voice and have caught glimpses of its meaning. Moses heard it, and his discernment of law was expressed in the Ten Commandments. These divinely inspired precepts have served as patterns of conduct for succeeding generations in the proportion that men have grasped their spiritual import; and each generation has persevered in developing a system of law based more and more on this divine pattern given by Moses. These human endeavors toward law and order point to an underlying divine law which man-made laws but faintly pattern and dimly reflect. This law, when spiritually understood and applied in human experience, dispels lawlessness and preserves the rights of mankind by healing the human mind of its lawless instincts toward sensuality and covetousness.
