Natural order

The natural order is the moral source from which natural law seeks to derive its authority. It encompasses the natural relations of beings to one another, in the absence of law, which natural law attempts to reinforce.

In contrast, divine law[?] seeks authority from God, and positive law seeks authority from government.
