Liberty Under God
IS THE GIFT OF
God our Lawgiver, Judge, and King



Congress should
  • stop legislating
  • stop funding war
  • stop funding salvation by bureaucracy

Isaiah 33:2
For the Lord is our Judge,
The Lord is our Lawgiver,
The Lord is our King;
He will save us

Law: Man's or God's?

6.  Murder
7.  Cheating on your Wife

For more than 300 years -- roughly 1600-1900 -- "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" -- that is, the Bible -- permeated America's schools (public schools were created to teach the Bible) and American culture. These laws are the foundation of civilization.

Who Brings Salvation?


Jesus is the Christ.

The word "Christ" has many meanings. The basic meaning is "anointed," as in "king" (Matthew 21:5 ), e.g., "King of Israel" (John 1:49). Jesus is also called a "Ruler" (Micah 5:2), a "Potentate" (1 Timothy 6:15 ), a "Governor" (Matthew 2:6 ), a "Captain" (Hebrews 2:10 ), a "Prince" (Isaiah 9:6 ), and many other words (some of which we aren't familiar with in our day, like "Horn" [Luke 1:69 ]) which are political in nature.

Many political terms can be inferred:

  • Jesus is a "servant," which is another word for "minister," and Jesus is surely the "Prime Minister."
  • In his inaugural address, George Washington spoke of "that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations." The one who "presides" is the "president."
  • Jesus is our King, our Lawgiver, and our Judge (Isaiah 33:22) -- all three branches of government under the U.S. Constitution.

Our point is that Jesus is the -- THE -- the ONLY -- legitimate king, prince, ruler, president, prime minister, governor, legislator, judge, and potentate. If we simply practice what we preach -- by obeying His commandments -- we will have a peaceful, orderly, and prosperous society. All other earthly kings, princes, rulers, presidents, prime ministers, governors, legislators, judges, and potentates are illegitimate usurpers and anti-Christ.
