Would you consider yourself to be a legal naturalist, positivist, or realist.  Why? I would venture that I am for positivist law.  I am not going to try and preach or sway anyone’s thoughts, but I am a  Christian; the Bible instructs us to obey the laws of the nations in which they live because they have been put in  power by God. See Romans 13:17.  I feel that all laws have been created for a reason, and should be treated equally  as such, they are laws.  One may say, due to the economy, that people losing their jobs may start to act radically.  If I  lost my job, I would know that stealing from the market to feed my family is wrong, and if caught, I therefore would  receive the punishment for that crime.  There are other means to feeding a family, whether government aide,  borrowing, or if need be begging.
