Summary: Obedience to the laws of physics has put men on the moon. Freedom, Health, Happiness and Prosperity are based on obedience to laws. Re-writing those laws will not get us to the moon, and it can hijack us from a higher destiny in life.

If we Google Newton's Laws, we find a daunting list that includes matter, energy and motion. Scientists look for sources of energy, but they are unable to re-write the laws of physics. Newton, who also invented calculus was one of the greatest intellects of all times. His genius included his translation of part of the Bible from Hebrew and a chronology of the Bible that matches Ussher projeccting 6,000 years from Creation to 2000 AD. He saw God as the masterful Creator whose existence could not be denied in the face of the grandeur of all creation.

As our world seems to be moving towards lawlessness and rebellion to governments worldwide, we do well to consider the centrality of a law that has stood the test of time.

In medical school, we were taught that Moses wrote the first comprehensive health code. US forces in the South Pacific were getting sick eating eel and shell fish until the Navy did a study that found scales and fins are a safe guide to eating—the same rule in Leviticus 11 written ~3400 years earlier. Eating the fat or blood of meat was also forbidden, undeniably related to major disease today.

Using the physical model of health, we can see that true prosperity comes, not from indulgence of appetite and doing our own thing, but recognizing those laws and learning to live within their guidelines. The same may be said for the moral law, the 10 Commandments, linked in the 4th Commandment to Newton's Creator, “for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth...and rested the 7th day,” Exodus 20:11.

Those same commandments define the guidelines of happiness for all social relationships.
1. Honoring our father and mother is basic to a home with happiness.
2. Christ magnified the law, saying if we are angry with a brother without a cause, we are in danger of judgment.
3. The commandment against adultery also guards the happiness of the home and fully understood, it condemns homosexuality practiced by a mere 3% of our population. Nevertheless, this commandment is broken by millions watching the media and looking to lust, Matthew 5:28.
4. Lying and stealing (Commandments 8 & 9) are making Washington DC the rightful capitol of the coming New World Order. Margaret Thatcher understood the problem when she said, “Socialists are happy until they run out of other people's money.”
5. People are more important than things, so the previous commandments guard our happiness with others. The last commandment is about things—we should not covet or want our neighbors house or wife or car. But making us want what others have is the basis of commercials that sell us on the “good life.” “If we weren't so eager to see and want the latest, we might be content with with we already have, while rich people, usually wanting more, are poor indeed.

In our world going crazy with lawlessness and rebellion, we should hear Solomon, known for his wisdom, saying, “For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light and reproofs of instruction are the way of life,” Proverbs 6:23.
