Lessons in Liberty 2019 Lecture Series: The Seven Principles of Liberty
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?
