Law and Government

Essay by George R. Theiss 

The Religious Nature of Law and the U.S. President

All law is religious in nature.  All law pre-supposes a Law-Giver, who is the "god" of that society.  In a Christian society, the Law-Giver is the God of the Bible, who gave us the Ten Commandments.  Christian common law has been based on these Ten Commandments from the time of the Roman Emperor, Justininian, in the Sixth Century.

The Justininian Code combined earlier Roman Law with Biblical Law.  Theodora, the wife of Justininian, was a devout convert to Christianity.  In early English history, Alfred the Great prefaced his Anglo-Saxon Law Code with the Ten Commandments.

In Islamic countries, Shariah law is based on the Koran (Qu'ran).  Shariah law pre-supposes the authority of another law-giverAllah.  In communist nations, law is based on the Communist Manifesto of Karl Marx.  Communist law pre-supposes that "man" is the ultimate judge of everything.  Thus, "man" is the law-giver and "god" of communism.

Another term for "man" being the law-giver is "humanism."  Simply defined, humanism means the "belief in man."  Humanism is a religion, just like its twin sister, communism.  Both have their "god" (man) and their own prophets (Marx, Mao, Shaw, Dewey, etc.).

Whenever a religion is in power, it will seek to enforce its laws.  No religion can remain in power by allowing any opposing religion to reject its laws.  Examples of this are not hard to find.  For example, in Muslim, Communist and Hindu lands, Christian missionaries are often put to death for attempting to convert people to Christianity.

In modern day America, lip service is still paid to freedom of religion by our leaders.  But this does not stop the humanists from seeking to enforce their religious laws on the rest of us.  Again, examples of this abound.

The Department of Housing and Human Services imposes their religious ethic by forcing a commercial property owner to rent space to an abortion clinic.  They force a Christian couple to rent their second home to homosexuals.

The Department of Labor forces Christians to hire women against their conscience.  The U.S. Military now forbids chaplains to pray in "Jesus Name."  Federal judges order Roy Moore to remove the Ten Commandments from his Alabama State Supreme Court room.

Yet the same Federal Government tells us that a Christian President must not force his religion on the American people.  This is sheer hypocrisy.  All law is religious.  Any religion must enforce its law on the people, whether or not they agree with that law.

The only alternative is lawlessness and chaosat least until another, opposing religion is able to establish itself as the new governmental power and enforce its laws.  The U.S. President should enforce all Constitutional Laws enacted by Congress.

He should use his power of impoundment to confiscate funds used for unconstitutional purposes such as abortion and withhold funding from courts that rule unconstitutionally.  The President has a moral obligation to uphold the Ten Commandments. 

Why?  God is Creator and King.  He is the Law-Giver.  All men have a moral obligation to obey God, whether they agree with Him or notwhether they even believe in Him or not.  Man is the creature who will someday be judged by Almighty Godthe Creator.

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment . . . .

Tulip Gems is a Calvinistic Baptist web site that honors Jesus Christ and provides a free Hyperinflation Survival Guide.  We offer free Bible Articles on several subjects, including Bible Nutrition , Creation Science versus Evolution Passover , The Great Commission and Tulip Calvinism

Which Bible can we trust? Which Bible is the most accurate? Why KJV only? Read our Which Bible series of articles for answers from both Scripture and history (including a Rebuttal of James White's book, The King James Only Controversy).

We also offer a well-documented Vietnam Veteran Story that illustrates the mercy of God.  The Vietnam Veteran Story, found on our Combat Vet page, comes from published accounts of Vietnam Veterans experiences, as well as this Vietnam Veterans experiences, told first hand.  

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our
Survive Nuclear Attack page. While many Calvinists shy away from Bible prophecy, we don't. For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.

George Theiss is a combat veteran of Vietnam who now follows Lamb of God.  He and his wife Christy have been married 39 years. They have 8 children.
