This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

In the Sharia, God determines society

The Islamic concept of law is one in which God determines the nature of society and dictates the basic framework of the social order: this is a different point of view from the Christian one where human laws are determined by man with a view toward reconciliation with the Will of God, and is an entirely different world from modern liberalism in which law is purely an expression of the ‘will of the people’ and has no reference to Divine Law whatsoever, these being replaced by vague references to ‘human rights’ and weak attempts to formulate a revised natural law that is not dependent on Revelation. As strange as such a view may at first seem, it is easy enough to comprehend if one simply considers the Old Testament and Jewish Law as presented there.
