“Law is in every culture religious in origin…the source of law is the god of that society…in any society, any change in the law is an explicit or implicit change of religion….no disestablishment of religion as such is possible in any society….there is no tolerance in a law-system for another religion. Modern humanism, the religion of the state, locates law in the state and thus makes the state, or the people as they find expression in the state, the god of the system….Every law-system must maintain its existence by hostility to every other law-system and to alien religious foundations or else it commits suicide." ----- Rousas John Rushdoony

The Nature of a Republic

Divine Authority for a REPUBLIC

Since all politics is local, representation needs to originate from the smallest community unit.  Because any form of centralization is intrinsically despotic, limited government best serves the sovereign individual.  Deeply ingrained within the most fundamental of precepts for moral and civic conduct are the instructions for civil administration.  Yes, the Bible in Exodus sets down the guide for human order.

 

In Exodus 18 a conversation takes place between Moses and his father-in-law Jethro about what could be called the judicial system of the Hebrew government. “Listen now to me and I will give you some advice, and may God be with you. You must bring the people’s representative before God and bring their disputes to him. Teach them the decrees and laws and show them the way to live and the duties they are to perform. But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain - and appoint them as officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens.” Jethro and Moses attempted to put into place a representative form of government that would protect the interests of the Hebrew people and honor God. By choosing honorable men from among each group to handle the small disputes and present the large ones to Moses, Jethro tried to create a situation where the interests of the Hebrew people would not be ignored but rather handled in a manner that brought glory to God.

 

The law from God is embodied in the Ten Commandments.  No other basic and rudimentary code for behavior supercedes these edicts.  The framework for government has been so confused over the centuries that very few understand the intended nature for organizing society.  The nucleus of a Republic is representation.  The initial entity for selection of a delegate starts with ten citizens.  The next level has one representative selected by those agents from among the fifty envoys.  The process is repeated for the subsequent hundred and then thousand.  Choice of your representative rests within your elementary selection at the lowest level.  From that point on REPRESENTATIVES determine the ascendancy of responsibility to a higher unit of organization.

 

Think this method is just too simple?  Or do you believe that it is too restrictive?  Before you answer, examine the fruits of every other form of government.  Then consider the viewpoint of Rousas John Rushdoony author of The Institutes of Biblical Law, the case for a Biblical social philosophy that uncompromisingly affirmed the validity of biblical law.  An excerpt from a Rushdoony interview:

 

Question:  But wouldn't a Christian Republic run according to God's Law become oppressive to non-Christians?

 

Law is the will of the sovereign for his subjects. Thus Law represents the word of the God of the society. Now whose Law you have, He is your God. So if Washington makes our laws, Washington is our God. As Christians we cannot believe that. For centuries, God's law has functioned wherever God's people have been, whether in Israel or in Christendom. This is a new and modern thing that we turn to the state's law. One professor of law, the dean of a law school, told me that he found that even into the 1840s, courts in the United States, decided cases out of the Bible -- out of God's Word, out of His Law -- because He is God.

 

Now we do not recognize God as God over the United States. The oath of office for the president of the United States used to be taken on an open Bible on Deuteronomy 28 invoking all the curses of God for disobedience to His law and all the blessings of God for obedience to his law. Now basically you can have two kinds of law: theonomy -- God's law, or autonomy -- self-law. That's what it boils down to and autonomy leads to anarchy, which is what we are getting increasingly.

 

This series is entitled Inherent Autonomy.  The inherent aspect is based upon the natural order of divine design.  The autonomy in this relationship is your individual sovereignty that stems from God’s authority and rests upon your adherence to His commandments.

 

Columnist Al Cronkrite offers this conclusion:

 

“When the doctrine of Divine selection is lost it is often purposely lost in order that people may define their own terms for salvation. Since Jesus, The Christ, has secured salvation and given it as a gift for those whom He chooses, The Law is no longer the criterion for salvation but has now become the prescription for a peaceful and prosperous social order. The Paraclete has secured our righteousness and a Pharisaical approach to living is just as abhorrent to God today as it was at the time of Christ.”

 

 “The legal system of the Bible is not an adversarial legal system. Neither is it geared to the arbitrary laws produced by a powerful elite. It is based on Justice and the Justice is not from the minds of men but from the mind of God.”

 

Representation consistent with the Mosaic model are absent today when you scrutinize Exodus 18:25 - And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.

 

Since there is no Moses among us to do the choosing, the operative replication is to follow the selection of representatives under the directives that are prescribed.  Would this method make a difference?  How would a systemic shift in the tectonic plates that operate the levers of public administration compare with the established structure of our current condition?  Chris Hansen from the Family Guardian present a very detailed chart comparison called: TWO POLITICAL MODELS WITHIN OUR COUNTRY.  Read and compare for yourself.  “Many people are blissfully unaware that there are actually two mutually exclusive models for political organization within the United States of America.  You have an option to adopt either.  If you do nothing and you do everything the way the government wants you to, then you will end up with the option on the left whether you want it or not.”

 

If you have any doubts as to the consequences from our own history, Philip Freneau an 18th century journalist for the National Gazette sets out the argument in Rules for Changing a Republic, against the Hamiltonian betrayal of our 1776 Revolution. “Under the aggressive leadership of Alexander Hamilton, the Secretary of the Treasury, economic measures were taken that favored the few, while an effective party machine was organized and the army strengthened in such a way as to suggest an intent to control rather than to represent the many . . . “

 

The necessary linkage between creating a true Republic under the auspices of Biblical principles should be the essential deduction.  The version that materialized from adopting the Constitutional adoption of a central governmental authority, the emergence of political parties to shape elections and direct democratic voting for state and national office positions, caused the experiment to fail.

 

With nothing left of significance or meaning to the charade that clings to an illusion of a republican form of government, citizens delude themselves and demean their own self-respect.  The drive to abrogate and abolish revealed authority and substitute arbitrary and errant autonomies is the key malfunction within our system of government.  Obedience to God and not to a wayward and false representative formula for the State is the solution.  A real Republic has never been instituted.  Inherent Autonomy means compliance to the source of all rightful authority.  Self-governance, individual liberty and social justice are all lineal components of a divine master plan.  In order to be faithful with the authentic American Dream, God’s law and method for representation must be accepted.  The final power rest in this understanding . . .
