"While man has never seen, heard, touched, smelled, nor tasted God's invisible laws, he has observed their effects through the blessings resulting from man's obedience and the curses from disobedience. At the heart of the common law was a Biblical definition of law. One of its great expositors, Sir William Blackstone, noted that God, as the Creator of the heavens and the earth, created the rules of action that all creation was bound to obey." Herbert W. Titus, from Biblical Principles of Law.
