Libation # 208
Marriage and Natural Law 
John Locke

"For though the law of nature be plain and intelligible to all rational creatures; yet men, being biased by their interest, as well as ignorant for want of study of it, are not apt to allow of it as a law binding to them in the application of it to their particular cases."    
           - John Locke, Second Treatise of Government


John Lock was the most respected legal scholar of his day and his writings influenced the worldview of the founders."

It was true in Locke's day and it is true today; when the law of God if found to be in opposition to the ungodly interests of men, they devise the most foolish excuses to avoid it. Yet, in the Declaration, the founders expressed the highest regard for the laws of nature and nature's God. They described natural law as self-evident, meaning it needs no explanation. This same language is used in the scriptures which says,

"...that which is known about God is evident ... but they became futile in their imaginations ... professing to be wise, they became fools ... women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural ... also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another..."
(See Romans 1:19-27 NASB).

Nature has defined marriage. It needs no further explanation. Only fools would attempt to do so.
