Hi guys,
I'm currently planning some R.S essays for Ethics and I've just had a bit of a realisation... is natural law a type of ethical naturalism?? Because natural law does explain good in terms of natural properties?
I just need a little bit of clarification if I'm right or not so I can plan it in my essay.

Thanks

Natural law holds that ethical precepts and judgements on actions can be derived from our nature (telos) because God created it and thus it must be directed towards the good. That could look naturalistic since human nature is part of the natural world. However the ultimate source of our natures' goodness is God, so meta-ethically natural law seems to be non-naturalist because God is supernatural.
