The Foundations of American Government Part 1 Romans 13 revisited

The Foundations of American Government
Part 1: Human Government a Responsibility of Man

The first mention of human government in the history of the world is found in Genesis 9:5-6. God instructs the survivors of the flood to take responsibility and protect the lives of their fellow citizens. God gives the responsibility of punishment of evil-doers to men. This first mention carries with it two principles: 1. The law is not made for the righteous but for the disobedient and 2. Human government is the responsibility of men. That is to say, men create their own government. They are required by their creator to create such government. [Read more →]

John Leland’s 8 Principles of Republican Government

John Leland was a Baptist pastor in Massachusetts and Virginia in the 1700’s. He was a personal friend of James Madison and influential in the founders from Virgina, such as Thomas Jefferson. He was an important figure in the struggle for religious liberty in the United States. Leland vigorously fought for individual Soul Liberty, which is the freedom to worship God according to the dictates of one’s conscience. Regarding this topic he said,

“Every man must give account of himself to God, and therefore every man ought to be at liberty to serve God in a way that he can best reconcile to his conscience. If government can answer for individuals at the day of judgment, let men be controlled by it in religious matters; otherwise, let men be free.”

Leland’s eight principles of republican government are starting to show up here and there on the web. How great is this?! These principles are very relevant today, and are essential for understanding our form of government:

1. That the law was not made for a righteous man, but for the disobedient.
2. That Righteous men have to part with a little of their liberty and property to preserve the rest.
3. That all power is vested in, and consequently derived from the people.
4. That the law should rule over rulers, and not rulers over the law.
5. That government is founded on compact.
6. That every law made by legislators, inconsistent with the compact, modernly called a constitution, is usurping in the legislators, and not binding on the people.
7. That whenever government is found inadequate to preserve the liberty and property of the people, they have an indubitable right to alter it so as to answer those purposes.
8. That legislators, in their legislative capacity, cannot alter the constitution, for they are the hired servants of the people to act within the limits of the constitution. –James Beller

Video evidence that Dearborn Michigan no longer American

Here is a disturbing video every American ought to see. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds needs to see this to view the unconstitutionality of forbidding literature distribution. Amendment One of the Constitution includes the freedom of the press. The city ordinance forbidding distribution fueled the fire evidenced in this video. Every American ought to tell the city council of Dearborn (and Detroit) what they think of this. -James Beller

Dearborn Michigan no longer American

Judge: Group can’t walk with literature at Michigan festival

By David N Goodman
June 18, 2009

A federal judge Thursday denied an evangelical Christian group’s request for permission to hand out literature on sidewalks at an Arab festival in the heart of the Detroit area’s Middle Eastern community.

U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds denied Anaheim, Calif.-based Arabic Christian Perspective’s request for a temporary restraining order.

The group describes itself in its court filing as “a national ministry established for the purpose of proclaiming the Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ to Muslims … (that) travels around the country attending and distributing Christian literature at Muslim festivals and mosques.” [Read more →]

S.909 The Hate Crimes Prevention Act and H.R.1966 The Cyberbullying Prevention Act

8 Reasons “Hate” Crimes Legislation is Illegitimate, or,
Reasons to Reject S.909 and H.R.1966

By James Beller

1. “Hate” is not a crime, it is only a sin of the conscience. And the conscience cannot be legislated in America. Even though “hate” is not the object of prosecution in S.909, the bill will be used to bring greater punishment on the perpetrator, making “hate,” which is an opinion of the conscience, measurable.
