The Constitutional Minute #14: Is the Constitution a religious document? Did it have a biblical foundation?

  The fundamental act of our Founding, (the Declaration of Independence), recognizes the Creator God as the Source of Rights.

It acknowledges that the purpose of civil government is simply to “secure” the Rights God gave us.

The Constitution we subsequently ratified was based on God’s model of civil government as set forth in the Bible. Our US Constitution “secures” our God-given rights by limiting the scope of our federal civil government. Less government means more rights left to the people to exercise. More regulations = less rights exercised.

That is why our Country was the envy of the rest of the world since our founding. For the most part, we followed God’s model for civil government; other countries didn’t.

The blessing which flows from God’s model is limited civil government which is under The Law. That is why our Liberty Bell quotes Lev. 25:10 – “Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants thereof.”

The Biblical Foundation of Our Constitution.

Please print this paper and give to your clergy.

 The Constitution is a theological document! Our clergy should know this and be able to defend God’s Word as expressed in our Constitution.

Our churches must declare independence from the federal government who ignores the Constitution and throw off the chains of the 501 (c) (3) tax exemptions!

God requires our clergy to take an active role in protecting the People from a civil government which violates the Higher Law – be it God’s Law or our Constitution which is based on God’s Law.
