The Law of God

What is the law of God? The law written on the heart of men?

Are these the mitzvot of the OT?
The 10 commandments?
Or is this law something else?

How do we know whether we follow the law if we do not know what it is?
The Law is the new Covenant (resurrection, life from the dead) which is the holy Spirit. You must receive the holy Spirit if you want that Law written in your heart.

Romans 8:2
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

No man was is God.

God is planet earth as mass one body not a spirit.

Gods earth spirit gases.

Says a living man first. A conscious man first. A thinking man. A storyteller. A theist.

About natural.

He lives he owns a living heart.

To live as a man the law of life is your life a human.

To be a living human in the law of life is to own a functioning heart in the law of life a human.

As that natural human man and thinker. Not a father. Just an adult man said I can create myself by breaking the laws of stone.

As he thinks he is a creator by the laws of stone. Broken.

A father human adult correct thinker says my law is heartfelt. I create my baby children whom I love. My law of my heart.

The variables a man thinker can be. Our lifes destroyer fake thinker or a human father.

Romans 7 1 outlne notes 07 31 11 the whole purpose of the law

The Ten Commandments were the laws of God, which Moses had received.

Man has made additional laws. (Jaywalking, etc).

None of these laws (of God nor man) keep men from sinning.

If you don't know the law, that is no excuse (not in God's eyes, nor in court).

If there are laws, you are obligated by God to find out what those are.

Death is one law that even politicians, with all their skill at evading the law, cannot evade.

Why would God, who is all powerful, need any act of man or Jesus to forgive sins? Why would God need a blood sacrifice from Jesus to forgive man's sins?

Why would a kind God send souls to bake in the fires of hell for all eternity for merely disbelieving? God seems to be hiding, so proof of God is impossible to obtain. If so, why blame innocent atheists for not believing?

The Law written on our hearts is the will of God within us. "I will put my pure spirit in thee". A guiding fragment of the Father is in the heart of his children on earth. It is our guide if we choose to be guided.

Is Gods law is not a repeat of the laws of Hammurabi or or those of Ashoka? The tablet which God gave to Moses is broken, but we still have Ashokas edicts. Edicts of Ashoka - Wikipedia

There are many historical inscriptions, but I would consider them God given law.

...

I think love is the law, because:

Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not give false testimony,” “You shall not covet,” [TR adds “You shall not give false testimony,”] and whatever other commandments there are, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love doesn’t harm a neighbor. Love therefore is the fulfillment of the law.
Romans 13:8-10

For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. His commandments are not grievous.
1 John 5:3

When a human actually never made anything.

Yet Ai speaks his thesis that keeps claiming we made it.

No human made anything as everything already existed.

A human quote. I did exactly as the highest creator the eternal had.

I can change the status whatever exists first.

Change being the term what I copy about the idea of the original creator changing a portion of its body.

Law.

If your heart was pure. Then there would be no question to ask. As you'd just accept natural.

Was the teaching.

Law is natural in creation.

Evil men are determined to break them. Prove the idea of being without feeling. Heartless as inhumane choice when they live by their heart.

As humans seem to forget the quote a human is evil. As your choices cannot be blamed on any other body type.

Most wrong choices are about artificial...civilisation was no longer family life. And artificial is technology.

Men make choices to do wrong based on artificial choices only.

Well, mostly biblical but any ideas about God's law. Some seem to think this is inherently known by humans. Some may thing it was written down by prophets.

Many have said God's law is love. Personally, I'm not a big fan equating God's law to love as I see love as a physiological process, but maybe this simply means God's design.

Oh I see. I understand. I asked that because the Torah literally means law.

Anyway, to give my personal opinion completely independent of particular theologies, God's law has to be revealed. If it was revealed, through time it becomes intrinsic. Then people wonder "where did it come from"? So now even if you are a theist or atheist, nihilist or what ever you are, you will have it intrinsically. Maybe through life we may embrace some kind of philosophical worldview. This is the reason many people find it hard to discuss subjective morality with some things which are definitely objective.

I don't know who says God's law is love. I have heard God is love kind of thing. It's true. I mean people could say God is love. But they should know, that God is also many other things and probably in all major theologies. But I have not heard this God's law is love. Maybe someone told you that on a preacher mode. ;) I don't want to get into this physiological or not discussion.

Cheers.

In the heart of men is conscience.

For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law.
They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them. (Romans 2:14-15)​

IMO, not everyone has the same conscience.
