With these premises in mind, first, that all law is enacted morality or procedural thereto, second, that all morality rests on a religion, and third, that the source of a culture’s law is its god, let us examine now the relationship of man to law. (p.142)
If man is the creature of the supernatural God of Christianity, then man is both under God and under God’s law. He is under obligation to obey God by obeying law in every sphere of life insofar as it is faithful to God's law: Man is under law. But if the ultimate source of law resides in humanity, and humanity is seen as divine, then man cannot be placed under law, because he himself is beyond law as the source of law. In a humanity possessed of divinity, man cannot be under law, but he can have two other possible relationships to law: man can be over law, or man can be apart from law. Man over law means, as we shall see, statism; man apart from law means anarchism. (p.142)

Let us examine the first of these three classifications of man in relation to law: man under law, with God as the source of law. The first consequence of this position is that Christian order means that man is placed, together with his every institution, under law. The state, church, family, school, private associations, business, farming, science, and every other human activity are equally bound by the absolute law of God. The sovereignty of God precludes the sovereignty of man. Neither church nor state nor any other institution can claim, without departure from the faith, sovereignty for itself. A sovereign power is beyond law and is the source of law. The claim of sovereignty by kings meant absolutism, a claim to be beyond law. Thus, with respect to Queen Elizabeth I of England, we read: (p.142)
