It’s the Law – The American View of Government is the Biblical View

At the foundation of every social order is a concept of law and government. For most of the history of our country, this foundation was the Bible — the Word of God — including both the Old and New Testaments. Thus, the American view of law and government is founded on the Biblical view of law and government. This is explicitly made clear in the Declaration of Independence, which makes reference to the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God and The Supreme Judge of the World.

The Declaration, which the U.S. Code calls the “organic law of the United States,” asserts a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence. The Declaration goes on to say that all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. AND, to secure these God-given rights, our Founders said that governments are instituted among men. So, our foundational law says clearly — explicitly — that the express purpose of government is to secure — to protect — rights we already have from God.

It is not the role (nor the ability) of government to give people “rights,” but instead, to protect the rights God has already given us as human beings made in His image. We are often told today that America was founded as a secular country, where law and government are, supposedly, neutral and totally man-made. This is false. This is dangerous. This is destructive of liberty, and, as has been demonstrated, this is un-American.
