"If we attempt to comprehend God’s righteousness according to our mode of thinking, we encounter an insurmountable difficulty. Man is just when his actions conform to the Law of his divine Superior. But since God has no superior and therefore no fixed norm, can we really predicate righteousness of Him? This apparent difficulty is resolved in the Scriptural axiom coined by the Scholastics and used by Luther: Deus est exlex. God is outside the Law. ‘He is just, because He wills and does everything in conformity with His own Law.’ Luther: ‘God issues His Law to others, but He does not apply it as a norm to Himself.’

Footnote 96: [‘Gott gibt das Gesetz aus, aber er nimmt es nicht wieder hinauf.’ Luther’s sermon on Ex. 9:16, St. L. III:811 ff. Luther points out that whoever makes God subject to the law of ‘a universal concept of good,’ loses God, destroys the concept of God, reduces God to an idol. The universal concept of good is subject to God. ‘A man is pious when he acts and lives according to the Law. In God’s case you must invert the order: An act is good because God performs it.… Do not dare to apply a law or a standard to God, for He is not a creature; He is immeasurable. Man must live according to a norm.… Since God has no law, standard, or limit, He cannot transgress them.’ Prov. 16:4: ‘The Lord hath made all things for Himself,’ i.e., according to His own pattern. ‘Exlex,’ by the way, is not ‘church Latin,’ but is found in ‘classical’ Latin, as any larger Latin lexicon will show.]"

Francis Pieper, Christian Dogmatics, electronic ed., vol. 1 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1953), 457.

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to include that last sentence and then the footnote, but I really liked the footnote. It is important to note that God is so far outside of us, and that since He created our reason, our norm for living, our lives, we cannot hold Him to the same standard we are ourselves held to. God created everything, even our “universal concept of good.”
