In science, ideas begin with a hypothesis. If this hypothesis is tested and is proven correct by many independent researchers, it may become elevated to the status of a theory. We are familiar with many.
Einstein’s Theory of Relativity
Heisenberg’s Theory of Uncertainty
With time, these theories, after subject to thousands of additional experiments and testing may reach the hallowed status of a Law. Here are a few.
Newton’s Laws of Gravitation
There are laws of nature and there also Laws of God. God declared His Laws to His people through His prophet Moses. However, unlike the laws of nature, there are no hypotheses or theories in God’s Kingdom. God’s Law begins and ends with His declaration. He does not have to prove them because they are self-evident and written on the hearts of all of us, His Creation. However, our sinful natures may rebel against His Truth and determine that we know of a better way to live in this world and deal with our relationships. Thousands of years later, God’s only Son, Jesus Christ, reinforced the unchanging and inerrant Law of God.
And one of them, an expert in the law, asked a question to test him: “Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.”
Matthew 22:35-40 (CSB)
Laws of Nature.
Jesus Christ is the source of all the Laws of nature and of life. He fulfilled God’s purpose for all of us by living a perfect life, completely devoted to God, the Father, and sacrificing His life so that all who believe in Him would have eternal life and salvation.
Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
