Modern legal thought overlooks basic religious questions about the authority, purpose and limits of law. These questions are fundamental to a proper jurisprudential study, yet are routinely ignored. This paper addresses the three basic fallacies that have developed from the failure of legal scholars to examine the religious foundations of the law, and suggests a reordering of basic legal theory in line with this new thinking.
