To: Natural Law
You did not define the natural law in your previous post so I had no idea what it was and according to you it was not defined until 1959. The natural law according to the bible is that man is separated from God by his natural born sin. Sinfulness of man is through out the bible the world was destroyed by God because of his natural sinfulness. The bible clearly states that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. No one will enter heaven because they were good because no one is good in the eyes of God. If man could go to heaven because he was good the there is no need for Christ and the work He did not the cross. The bible clearly states that the job of the Holy Spirit is to convict man of his sinfulness and his need for a savior. No matter what natural law man sets up man will transgress those laws because he is basically sinful in nature.

"The natural law according to the bible is that man is separated from God by his natural born sin."

Catholics would disagree. We believe first and foremost in the hope and promise of Salvation and in God's infinite mercy. We believe that although we are indeed wounded by original sin, we maintain a free will because we are created in the image of God and that through the grace of the Sacraments of baptism we can overcome original sin. The desire for God is written in the human heart, because man is created by God and for God; and God never ceases to draw man to himself. Only in God will we find the truth and happiness we never stop yearning for.
