Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Romans 13:1 “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.”
II Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
Romans 2:14-15 “For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves; Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another”
Romans 1:18-20 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse”
Even before the Declaration of Independence described the unalienable rights that had been endowed by our Creator, it brilliantly described the foundation of the American revolutionary philosophy in its preamble:
“When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
God created the heaven and the earth, and we are all subject to His power. The Laws of Nature are firmly established by Nature’s God.
All our rights stem from Him, and when we are deprived of His rightful gifts of liberty, then we are justified in separating from those who are doing the depriving. This theological truth formed the basis of our forefather’s bold statement of independence.
Where do we find the laws of Nature provided by Nature’s God?
- From God’s perfect Word that is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction.
- From God’s pricks of conscience that reinforce the laws that He hardwired into our hearts.
- From God’s amazing creation in us and all around us that powerfully pinpoints His preeminence.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD ALWAYS ACKNOWLEDGE AND ABIDE BY NATURE’S LAWS THAT ARE FIRMLY ESTABLISHED BY NATURE’S GOD. All of humanity is without excuse, and as His ambassadors, we must always direct the gaze of our fellow citizens to Nature’s God as the ultimate source of our precious predetermined liberties.
