The laws of God can be divided into three main categories: Moral laws, Civil laws, and Ceremonial laws.
- Moral laws are timeless and have existed before Moses delivered the law from Mount Sinai. Moral laws are universal in that they apply to all people. These laws reflect the holy nature of God.
- Civil laws are laws that apply to governments. It involves punishment and procedures for them to follow. Nations who follow these laws have low crime and high prosperity. They receive many blessings from God as recorded in the Scriptures. Nations that break these laws will face God’s punishment.
- Ceremonial laws are laws that foreshadow the finished work that Christ did for us on the cross. Christians are not bound by these laws as revealed in many New Testament passages.
