Of the Power of Human Law
We must now consider the power of human law. Under this head there are six points of inquiry:
- Whether human law should be framed for the community?
- Whether human law should repress all vices?
- Whether human law is competent to direct all acts of virtue?
- Whether it binds man in conscience?
- Whether all men are subject to human law?
- Whether those who are under the law may act beside the letter of the law?
