The true governance over man is the laws of God and not man’s legal rights! The principles enunciated in all authorized revealed scriptures are intended to set the moral and spiritual principles whereby man can develop his obedience to and love for God. The governments of man are to uphold these higher divine principles and man’s laws are intended to ensure obedience to those higher laws by all citizens equally, for the upliftment of the individual and the society in general.
“The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from neglecting the precepts contained in the Scriptures.” – Noah Webster.
