Principles of Liberty
The United States is founded on principles of liberty that have made it exceptional, powerful, and free. The history of America is unique. The founding principles of liberty are Christian in their origin because they come from the Bible. Regardless of one’s faith, principles are universal and apply to every individual.
Through writings, speeches, and documents, the Founding Fathers referenced these principles as the foundational ideas that birthed the United States.
In future blogs, we will focus on specific principles. These principles have effected transformative change in men and nations.
In summation, the words of Judge Andrew P. Napolitano ring true:
“There are immutable laws that all of humanity are under. Governments that honor these laws prosper. ‘All men are created equal and are endowed by their creator by…‘ Our rights come from our humanity and not from our government. Now whether you believe that we are the highest and best creatures nature on earth or that we were created by an All-Knowing, All-loving God who has fashioned each individual in His image with a distinct destiny and purpose, these principles still apply. We are sovereign human beings and the highest creation of nature, the government is a temporary organization. The individual is greater than the government. If we are creatures of an Almighty, All-Knowing, All-loving God, created in His image and likeness, then the one aspect we share with Him is that we are completely and totally free. Freedom is integral to our existence. We are free to do as we wish because that is the essence of our existence. When the government gets in the way of our freedom, government is going against the laws of nature and of nature’s God.”
