Lessons in Liberty is a series of lectures and courses sponsored by The Foundation for American Christian Education (FACE) to help citizens better understand the source of liberty in our American Christian Constitutional Republic. Join like-minded patriots who love God’s Word, and together, master the “lessons of liberty” so you can be used of God to help bring every aspect of culture “captive to the obedience of Christ.”
The 2019-2020 Lessons in Liberty Lecture Series is a primer of American liberty and our Constitution. The Bible has been our textbook of civil, religious, economic, and educational liberty, producing our Christian constitutional Republic. The Bible and the Constitution is a distillation of the major ideas in The Christian History of the Constitution by Verna Hall and Teaching and Learning America’s Christian History by Rosalie Slater.
Join us each month, October 2019 through June 2020 (excluding December) online or in our classroom, as we study together the influence of the Bible in forming our Constitution. In each session we will teach and learn one major idea from The Bible and the Constitution. You will be become an influencer, able to readily defend our liberty and restore light to our nation.

One copy of the Bible and The Constitution is included with your full series subscription. Sessions may be accessed live in our classroom, live online, or at your convenience through watching the recorded presentation.

A Lessons in Liberty Presentation The principle of America’s Heritage of Christian Character, presented by Max Lyons, is part three of a seven part series on the Seven Principles of Liberty. Sadly we are witnessing the death of our republican form of government. This is primarily due to a loss of our national character. Our second president, John Adams rightly observed: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice,…Find out more »
A Lessons in Liberty Presentation The principle of Conscience is the Most Sacred of all Property, presented by Gary Porter, is part four of a seven part series on the Seven Principles of Liberty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jy7SE9s0Vc Life and liberty are secure only as the right of private ownership of property is strictly protected. Both internal (conscience) and external (land, etc.) property must be protected from perpetual assault. Ownership of private property is essential to a strong nation. Internal property is the most important…Find out more »
Lessons in Liberty, The Seven Principles of Liberty: The Christian Principle of American Political Union
Presented by Dr. Rodriguez. 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. Join us Monday, April 15 at 7:00 pm for…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 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…Find out more »
Part One of a Ten Part Lessons in Liberty series. Our national problems today, in 2019, are manifold: staggering, unaddressed national debt; porous borders which admit thousands of illegal immigrants each and every day; cries for more and more government control of our lives; a public education system which has clearly failed us; and a Christian church which seems either to not understand the magnitude of the problem or which simply does not care. Verna Hall, were she alive to contemplate…Find out more »
Lessons in Liberty, The Bible and the Constitution: Our Heritage of Christian Character and Government
Part Two of a Ten Part Lessons in Liberty series. In this session we will answer these important questions: Do Americans still have the capacity for self-government which our Founders demonstrated when they launched the world’s first Christian republic? Have the failures of our basic institutions—the home, the church, and the school eroded our “capacity for self-government”, that legacy of liberty bequeathed to us by all those who helped establish Constitutional government— Christian self-government with voluntary union— the basic principle…Find out more »
Part Three of a Ten Part Lessons in Liberty series. In this session Gary Porter will show how the unique idea of local self-government was birthed in our nation. This Biblical idea was first manifested in the Hebrew Republic, the God-given government of the Israelites. The next time we see it fully manifested in history was 3,000 years later in the American colonies! Our founders established Christian self-government in 1781 because they had practiced it for over 150 years in…Find out more »
Lessons in Liberty, The Bible and the Constitution: The American Home: Foundation for Constitutional Character
Part Four of a Ten Part Lessons in Liberty series. https://youtu.be/FHFHxu5KOO8 Home was identified in Colonial America as the first sphere of government. No single institution in America contributes more significantly to the success or failure of Constitutional government than the American home. It is in the home where the foundation of character is laid and where self-government must be first learned and practiced.” (Hall and Slater) In this session we will discuss why and how the Christian home must…Find out more »
Lessons in Liberty, The Bible and the Constitution: The American Church: Conscience and Constitution
Part Five of a Ten Part Lessons in Liberty series. The role of the church in society in the formation of our nation was very different than it is today. In this session we will discuss why this is one major reason we are losing our Biblical character and Biblical model of government. In our founding years citizens looked to their pastors to understand the Biblical principles of self and civil government. This documentation is preserved in what is referred…Find out more »
