Law and Prophecy

So orderly are the movements of the celestial bodies that astronomers are able to calculate years in advance the exact time of an eclipse of the sun or moon. No wonder the Psalmist was impelled to sing (Ps. 19:1), "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handy-work."

Do we have more confidence in the astronomical order that we observe than we have in the social order in which we participate? In other words, do we expect more of the stars and planets than we do of ourselves? If so, is it not because we believe that we revolve in an orbit of our own, in which we more or less establish the laws by which we are governed? And is it not because we believe ourselves to be apart from the spiritual laws that maintain the harmony of the universe in which we live?
