Preface

"When the French monarch proposed the persecution of Christians in his dominion, an old
statesman and warrior said to him,
Sire, the church of God is an anvil that has worn out many hammers.' So the hammers of infidels
have been pecin! away at this boo for a!es, but the hammers are worn out, and the anvil still
endures. "f this boo had not been the boo of God, men would have destroyed it lon! a!o.
#mperors and popes, in!s and priests, princes and rulers have all tried their hand at it$ they die
and the boo still lives.%
"&o other boo has been so chopped, nived, sifted, scrutini'ed, and vilified. What boo on
philosophy or reli!ion or psycholo!y or belles lettres of classical or modern times has been sub(ect
to such a mass attac as the )ible* With such venom and septicism* With such thorou!hness and
erudition* +pon every chapter, line and tenet*
""nfidels of ei!hteen hundred years have been main! ceaseless attempts at refutin! and
overthrowin! this boo, and yet it stands today as solid roc. "ts circulation increases, and it is
more loved and cherished and read today than ever before. "nfidels, with all their assaults, mae
about as much impression on this boo as a man with a tac hammer would on the ,yramids of

The Foundation Of law and The Law
/ll law and order, all societies, rests upon some le!al authority. 0here must be a source or
foundation for the laws and (urisprudence of a nation. 1any different modes of law and (ustice
have been devised, yet after thousands of years of stru!!le alon! these lines the world has failed to
find any system of law and (ustice, which can compare with that which is tau!ht in the )ible.
-uman le!al systems come and !o and are continually in the process of reform and chan!e, but the
eternal principles of (ustice, truth and ri!hteousness established by God for man are unchan!ed.
0hey have endured the test of time by way of their proven effectiveness. 0hus, all e2uitable codes
of (urisprudence are founded upon )iblical teachin!s and principles, and indeed must conform to
them, as Sir William )lacstone well says3
+pon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation 4-oly Scriptures5 depend
all human laws$ that is to say, no human laws should be suffered to contradict these
46 )6. Comm.785.
)lacstone further stipulates that human laws are only declaratory of, and act in subordination to,
divine and natural laws; and should any human law allow or enjoin us to do what divine law has
prohibited, we are bound to transgress that human law. 46 )l. Comm. 7897:5.
"t is +ndeniable that Gods .aw supersedes man;s law
God forbid, we establish the .aw.% 4<omans :3:6.5 =efinition of establish3 create, institute, set up,

Sir William )lacstone clearly understood scripture. "f ever the law of God and man are at
variance, the former are to be obeyed in dero!ation of the later. 4/cts >38?5.
"For my thou!hts are not your thou!hts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the .@<=. For as
the heavens are hi!her than the earth, so are my ways hi!her than your ways, and my thou!hts than

)ouvier;s reco!ni'es that Gods .aw and the land are the same
"Le ley de Dieu et ley de terre sont tout un, et l'un et l'autre preferre et favour le common et
publique bien del terre990he law of God and the law of the land are all one$ and both preserve and
favor the common !ood of the land." ouvier's Law Dictionary H6?67I, "1aJim," p. 8678.
"Legem terrae amittentes perpetuam infamiae notam inde merito incurrunt99 0hose who do not
preserve the law of the land, then (ustly incur the ineffaceable brand of infamy." ouvier's Law
Dictionary H6?67I, '1aJim," p. 8678.
0he lex non scripta is the law of the land because it preserves both the Christian 1an and the state.
Whoever rebels a!ainst the laws of the land 4God5 shall be put to death. 4Kosh. 636A5.
&ote3 =o not confuse God;s .aw of the .and with the common law$ which is founded from the
Custom of 1erchants, .aw91erchant, .aw of 1erchants and <oman law.
1an's observance of divine law is essential in his moral conduct, economic well bein!, and social
order, (ust as the physical laws are essential in an orderly universe. 0he )ible contains those
precepts and commands which constitute the le!al and moral authority to !uide human conduct.
0here is no doubtful authority contained in the words3 "Thus saith the LORD." 0his is the
authority all law and (ustice must be founded upon.
)iblical (ustice consists of an eJact and scrupulous re!ard for the ri!hts of others, with a deliberate
purpose to preserve them on all occasions sacred and inviolate, and for the perpetual disposition to
render every man his due.
0he )ible also contains many rules, re!ulations and laws for the creation, maintenance and
enforcement of oaths and contracts, which are essential acts for both conductin! daily business and
in administerin! (ustice. See3 )iblical .aw for @aths, Lows and Contracts
.aws of )iblical society held that one who had undertaen a duty or obli!ation, in le!al form, must
fully and eJactly perform it, at all re!ards. "f a man acted, he did so at his own ris. "t was his duty
to eep his eyes open and abide by the conse2uences of his a!reement and the law of the land.
)iblical (ustice stresses the importance of re2uirin! two or more witnesses in order to condemn a
person of some offense. "n )iblical law, as it is today, it is mandatory that witnesses !ive their
testimony in the presence of the accused and that they testify by oath. Legal fictions cannot ma!e
claims and give testimony against bondmen, as they "as Legal #ictions$ have not the breath of life
and lac! the authority to perfect a claim at Law. %here there is no Law there is no transgression
therefore, a bondman cannot transgress against or offend a Legal #iction.
)ecause the law woreth wrath3 for where no law is, there is no trans!ression. 4<omans 736>5
For the same reasons the .e!al Fiction cannot believe in a God that punishes evil and rewards
!ood. "t is not capable of swearin! an oath and has no conscience to bind. "t is folly.
