The 2018-19 Lessons in Liberty Series—
The Seven Principles of Liberty
What are the Seven Principles of Liberty? These basic, Biblical principles are the pathway to restore and maintain our Constitutional liberty.
Today, if we would preserve both liberty of conscience and civil liberty for every individual in America, we must base our convictions in every issue on the principles that built our American Christian Constitution.
Liberal pundits most often sway public opinion by debating issues. However, Christians can once again win the day by learning to present the principles of liberty because principles always trump issues. This is the pathway forward to restore our nation to truth and life.
These Seven Principles of Liberty are based in three foundational ideas:
- How the character of America is formed in the Christian home, the Christian church and the Christian school
- How the property of conscience is the end and purpose of government
- How the study and embodiment of basic Christian constitutional principles can be delegated to every aspect of the individual’s spheres of self-government: home, business, school, social and political circles
Join us each month, online or in our classroom, as we study together. Each month we will uncover and discuss one of the Seven Principles that undergird our U.S. Christian Constitution. You will be become an influencer, able to readily defend our liberty and restore light to our nation.

Noah Webster correctly observed, "Almost all the civil liberty now enjoyed in the world owes its origin to the principles of the Christian religion...The religion which has introduced civil liberty, is the religion of Christ and his apostles." Governmental forms are not equal; the freest form of government is one that is Biblical, embodying these aspects: a written constitution, separation of powers, fixed equally applied laws, protection of equal rights, systems of checks and balances, maximization of individual liberties particularly…Find out more »
Lessons in Liberty, The Seven Principles of Liberty: How the Seed of Local Self-Government is Planted
The family is the first level of local self-government. It is at this level that God has designed most of the functions of life to take place: material provision, nurture and raising of children, including their education, medical needs, and spiritual development. It is God's plan and purpose that these essentials of life are taken care of at the most basic level of government, the family, rather than at a more centralized level of government, whether it is the city…Find out more »
Lessons in Liberty, The Seven Principles of Liberty: The Christian Principle of American Political Union
Presented by Dr. Gai Ferdon, Liberty University Professor. Christianity produces civil or political union in a different way than the world does. It produces union based upon spiritual unity. Congregational clergyman Leonard Bacon observed that the early churches "became a community united, not by external bonds, but by the vital force of distinctive ideas and principles." The unity of believers eventually works its way from the individual sphere to the family, church and civil spheres. Register nowFind out more »
