Pushin for pedagogue lacin up paper weights walkin on stilts talking
A kid who gets on stilts, passing off as an older preacher, teaching other kids the “divine law”.
Divine law is any law that, according to religious belief, comes directly from the will of God, in contrast to man-made law. Like natural law (which may be seen as a manifestation of divine law) it is independent of the will of man, who cannot change it. However it may be revealed or not, so it may change in human perception in time through new revelation. Divine law is eternal law, meaning that since God is infinite, then his law must also be infinite and eternal.
Which also leads directly into the next line.
