The law of supply and the lie of lack

To understand the law of supply or provision, one must grasp the deeper meaning of "law" as well as "supply." True law is unchangeable, inflexible, and eternal. It cannot be manipulated or circumvented; nor can it be affected by time, changes in behavior patterns or customs, human pressures or whims. It is based on unerring Principle, and Principle is God. Therefore it is supported and upheld by God and is wholly spiritual and complete. Because it emanates from God, whose nature is good, law, to be law, must be good.

On the other hand, human law is man-made, not God-made. When based on God's immutable law as given in the Ten Commandments and Christ Jesus' teachings, human law is an influence for good. But when based on human opinion, it is subject to abuse and mortal limitations. It can be outmoded by time or other material circumstances and is subject to human interpretation, which can err.
