Power and the Spirit of God

As far back as St. Paul, a central and recurrent theme in discussion of the Holy Spirit has been the tension between Spirit and law, closely linked to debate about faith and good works. Law's power flows from the authority of the lawgiver, ultimately the authority of a divine creator; but legitimate civil law arises from the consent of the governed. Law lies at the root of social order; expresses the dictates of the common good while guaranteeing the rights of individuals. Conscience and the influence of the Spirit in conscience are the norm of moral law.
