In the beginning of the Latin translation of the Bible we read these
"Let there be light."
God is sovereign. Whatever God wants, God gets. He speaks His desires
In our day God is
forgotten. The government thinks it is god.
"Stroke of the pen
law of the land
said former Clinton advisor Paul
Or as John Lehman put
"Power corrupts. Absolute power is kind of neat."
When law is arbitrary, and when the State can create any laws it wants
without reference to "the Laws of
Nature and of Nature's God," then law becomes contradictory and
meaningless, and the people lose respect for the law. In his book Sovereignty,
R.J. Rushdoony (1916-2001) recalls that in 1928 it was illegal to possess
a bottle of whiskey but legal to have a bar of gold, but just a few years
later it was illegal to possess a bar of gold but legal to possess a
bottle of whiskey. Citizens who trust a government committed to "fiat
law" become confused and easily controlled.
