Law and Government

Essay by George R. Theiss 

The Dangers of Setting Bad Judicial Precedent

"Stare decisis" is a legal doctrine by which judges will respect the precedent established by prior decisions.  This works well when judges are men who fear God and regard His Lawas summarized in the Ten Commandments.

God commands that judges be selected, "from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness;" Exodus 18:21.  God says, "Take you wise men, and understanding, and known among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you."  Deuteronomy 1:13

Therefore, the Biblical requirements for a judge (confirmed later by men like Alexander Hamilton in the Federalist Papers #78) are:

·       must be a man

·       must fear God

·       must be a man of truth

·       must hate covetousness

·       must have understanding

·       must be known among his community 

The devastating consequences of unqualified judges who do not fear God, nor regard His Law, can be seen in the Supreme Court's decision in Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965.  In 1879, a law was passed in Connecticut prohibited "any drug, medicinal article or instrument for the purpose of preventing conception." 

The law had been challenged several times, but had not been overturned.  But when Estelle Griswold, executive director of the Planned Parenthood League of Connecticut was arrested for violating the statute, she challenged the statute in what became known as Griswold v. Connecticut. 

In 1965, Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas wrote that a "right to privacy" which is not mentioned anywhere in the U.S. Constitution, was apparent in the "penumbras, formed by emanations" of the Constitution. 

Douglas further held that this (smoke and mirrors approach) was enough to rule the 1879 Connecticut statute unconstitutional.  The Supreme Court's ruling in Griswold opened the door to a Pandora's Box of pretended rights to practice all sorts of immoral activity.

Modern, ungodly judges have used Griswold as legal precedence to find the right to practice sodomy (homosexuality) in Lawrence v. Texas and a mother's supposed right to murder her child, in Roe v. Wade.  

Modern courts now often appeal to international law as above the Constitution.  They change social norms as grounds for finding new rights and deleting old ones.  At the same time, they seek to remove every trace of Christianity from the public square. 

This is not altogether new.  For example, in the French Revolution: 

·       The public worship of God was outlawed.

·       A new calendar was created to reject Christian chronology.

·       Christian holidays were abolished.

·       400,000 people were executed without trial or evidence.

Similar events occurred during the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and Mao's Cultural Revolution in China.  It seems that America is heading down the same path today.

The Supreme Court in the United States has run out of control.  The only remedy is to replace the court with men of reputation and understanding, who fear God, hate covetousness and love His Law.

Chief Justice Roy Moore was such a man.  On November 13, 2003, the Alabama Court of the Judiciary removed Roy Moore from his position as Chief Justice of the Alabama State Supreme Court.

Why?  Roy refused to obey a federal judge's order to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Building.  For this public acknowledgement of the Sovereignty of God, he was removed from office.

Yet Roy Moore (a West Point graduate and Vietnam Veteran) had a perfect right (and duty) to display God's Law in his courtroom.  Both the Bible (Deuteronomy 6:1-9)  and the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gave him that right.

"And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:  And thou shalt teach them diligently . . . And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates."  Deuteronomy 6:5-9

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . ."

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

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.
