Perhaps you believe so. I don't. God's word defines "natural law". He is
the master, not the subject. That is why he is called the Lawgiver.
This is not Mormon doctrine according to my understanding. God was once a mortal man, and became God by living the natural laws that never had a beginning and will never have an end. He is the Law Giver because he gives laws to man in addition to these uncreated laws. The point is, God is bound by natural law just as much as we. That is LDS Doctrine as I understand it. The other doctrine, that he created all the natural laws, is a Protestant doctrine.

We tend to scoff at the beliefs of the ancients. But we
can't scoff at them personally, to their faces, and this is
what annoys me. --Jack Handy
