BSF17104  What Christians Need to Know about Natural Law—the Basis of Moral Law – CANCELLED
“Natural law” means moral law – in particular, the fundamental moral principles that are built into the design of human nature and lie at the roots of conscience.  Natural law thinking is the spine of the Western tradition of jurisprudence. Historically, it has provided the basis for talking about all of the “hot button” issues in past and present culture wars.  If you wanted to talk about war, slavery, political liberty or relations between men and women, you’ve talked about natural law.

Is there really a natural law?  What difference does it make to society and politics if there is?  Is it really “natural”?  Is it really “law”?  We will consider and discuss such topics.
