The Christian Form of Our Government
April 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT$10
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 freedom of religion and liberty of conscience. The American founders bequeathed us a Christian form of government and we are tasked with its stewardship. Will we be “good and faithful stewards” for our Lord?
Join us Monday, April 15 at 7:00 pm for our next Lessons in Liberty presentation on the Seven Principles of Liberty, Principle number 5 “The Christian Form of our Government” with Dr. Rodd Rodriguez.
Dr. Rodriguez graduated from Regent University School of Law and Government. While at Regent, Dr. Rodriguez became aware of the works of Verna Hall and Rosalie Slater and the Principle Approach to American Christian education. He quickly developed a passion for this approach that teaches one to reason from the Biblical bedrock principles of a subject to its particulars. The connection between Biblical theology, character, education, liberty and government led him to explore this relationship further. In 2009, he received his Ph.D. in Civil Science from Andrew Jackson University, School of Government with a focus on the nexus between Christianity, the West, individual rights and liberty.
Dr. Rodriguez served as Principal at New Covenant Christian School in Plymouth, Massachuttes and as an adjunct professor at Eastern Nazarene College. Today, he is part of the teaching staff at Stonebridge School in Chesapeake, Virginia with hopes to continue to expand the influence of the Principle Approach and the message of God’s liberty to individuals, families, churches, and nations. Rodd and his wife Karen have been married for 28 years. They are dedicated parents to their children Josh and Christa.
