BIBLE LAW VS. THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION:
The Christian Perspective
Conclusion: Choose Ye This Day: The United States Constitution or Yahweh’s Perfect Laws
The law of YHWH1 is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of YHWH is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of YHWH are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of YHWH is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of YHWH is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of YHWH are true and righteous altogether. (Psalm 19:7-9)2
Do you believe the law of Yahweh3 is perfect?
Do you believe the testimony of Yahweh is sure?
Do you believe the statutes of Yahweh are right?
Do you believe the commandment of Yahweh is pure?
Do you believe the fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring forever?
Do you believe the judgments of Yahweh are true and righteous altogether?
If you are a Libertarian, you hardly believe in any law and, therefore, these statements have little or no relevance to you – or so you think.
If you are a Democrat, you probably do not believe any of these statements and do not even make a claim to believe them – unless, of course, you are running for public office and think doing so will help get you elected.
If you are a Republican, you do not really believe any of those declarations.
If you are a Christian4 Constitutionalist, you may claim you believe these statements, but judging by your actions (particularly your allegiance to the U.S. Constitution), you no more believe Psalm 19:7-9 than do the Libertarians, Democrats, and Republicans.
Anyone who believes Yahweh’s laws are perfect will distance himself from these political parties and refuse to vote for any antinomian candidate. (See Chapter 5, “Article 2: Executive Usurpation,” for more regarding the unbiblical nature of elections.) Instead, the man who believes Psalm 19:7-9 will pursue Yahweh’s laws and kingdom – His government here on earth as it is in heaven – to prepare the way for a future generation to experience it in its fullest sense.
Although some people will be offended, I must say it: Christian Constitutionalists are idolaters just as much as are Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians, and as were the Pharisees, whom Yeshua5 denounced:
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Matthew 15:8-9)
If a person elevates the commandments of men as doctrine, or canon, his heart does not belong to Christ. The United States Constitution is a compilation of the commandments of men. It is not inspired Scripture and is antithetical to Yahweh’s laws in nearly every article and amendment. Consequently, the “Christian” faith of those who promote it is in vain:
And they come unto thee [Yahweh] as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness [their own desire]. (Ezekiel 33:31)
Many people claim they love Yahweh, but their actions prove otherwise:
If ye love me [Yeshua], keep my commandments. (John 14:15)
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments…. (1 John 5:3)
And this is love, that we walk after his commandments…. (2 John 1:6)
We cannot claim to personally keep Yahweh’s commandments while at the same time promoting a national covenant antagonistic to those same commandments. When we abandon Yahweh’s law, how can we dare think He will accept our obedience to man’s law as evidence of our love for Him? As finite beings, we are not free to dictate where Yahweh’s moral laws are and are not to be employed. The previous Scriptures apply to every sphere of our existence, not just our personal lives. Any sphere in which we are not applying Yahweh’s laws is doomed to failure:
Except YHWH build the house, they labour in vain that build it…. (Psalm 127:1)
Unless we are laboring to build Yahweh’s house – a government of, by, and for Him – our labor is likewise in vain. History has certainly proven that, according to biblical standards, the efforts of those who labored to build a government of, by, and for the people have been in vain:
Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in YHWH their God. And they rejected His statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which He testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain…. (2 Kings 17:14-15)
Yahweh’s Government vs. Man-Made Government
Nothing demonstrates the superiority of Yahweh’s government more than contrasting it with man-made government. Regrettably, because most Christians are merely waiting to go to heaven, they have been duped into believing government affairs are none of their concern. Paradoxically, Christians so desperately desire a Christian president that someone like George W. Bush has only to claim he’s a Christian for them to elect and follow him without so much as a cursory investigation of his Christian profession.
Most Christians take the stance that because government is “of the world,” Christians are not to concern themselves with it. The United States government is most certainly of the world because Christianity abandoned and abdicated rule to the non-Christians and antichrists. We have exchanged Yahweh’s laws and morality for man’s lawlessness and immorality. We have handed over the kingdom for less than a mess of pottage.
This hands-off-government policy by Christians is a relatively new phenomenon. The first-century apostles and disciples certainly did not take this same approach, as demonstrated in Acts 17:6-7, Romans 13:1-7, 1 Corinthians 6:1-5, 2 Corinthians 10:6, 1 Timothy 1:8-11, etc. Nor was this the approach taken by most of America’s Christians in the 1600s and early 1700s. King George detested America’s pre-Revolutionary War ministers for their interference in government affairs so much that he attempted to replace them with his Episcopal lackeys – the early Euro-American version of the 501(c)(3) government-issued preachers of today.
It makes sense that government would respond in this fashion. After all, if government is transgressing Yahweh’s laws, those who are running the government will not want preachers around pointing out their lawlessness and creating a disgruntled populace. What better way to constrain and control preachers than to convince them government affairs are none of their business?
Because most of today’s Christians have yet to comprehend the responsibilities that come with being the light of the world and the salt of the earth, government has been able to muzzle most preachers by licensing them. He who provides the license also provides the rules of conduct. Because most church doctrines have yet to ruffle the government’s feathers enough to incite reprimand and censorship, most preachers are oblivious to the fact that they are licensed and controlled by the government via their churches’ 501(c)(3) incorporation.
At present, the government has little to worry about. The majority of Christians and their pastors have made the Constitutional Republic one of the many baals to whom they give unquestioning obeisance, often promoting its laws as the Supreme Law of the Land, as per Article 6. Even if preachers were to awaken from their slumber, the government would be able to control most of them by threatening to revoke their tax-exempt status. Churches must rescind the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status6 that makes them subservient to the government instead of Yahweh. Until then, today’s churches, preachers, and Christians will only add sin to sin:
Woe to the rebellious children, saith YHWH, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin. …this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of YHWH. (Isaiah 30:1, 9)
The word “cover,” in the phrase “cover with a covering,” is translated from the Hebrew word nacak. Some Bible versions translate it “treaties” and “alliances,” words not far removed from “covenants” and “constitutions.” James Strong’s definition of nacak is even more interesting:
…a primitive root; to pour out, especially a libation, or to cast (metal); by analogy, to anoint a king.7
In 1 Samuel 12, the people recognized they had added to their sins by asking for a king (a surrogate covering):
And all the people said unto Samuel, Pray for thy servants unto YHWH thy God, that we die not for we have added unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king. (1 Samuel 12:19)
America is in the same place today. She has added to her sin by demanding and enthroning another god: WE THE PEOPLE. (See Chapter 3 “The Preamble: WE THE PEOPLE vs. YHWH” for proof that WE THE PEOPLE is indeed a god.)
More Scripture Disbelief
In addition to rejecting Psalm 19:7-9, Constitutionalists also fail to believe the Prophet Isaiah’s affirmation:
For YHWH is our judge, YHWH is our lawgiver, YHWH is our king; he will save us. (Isaiah 33:22)
Yahweh has a monopoly on justice, legislation, and sovereignty. Although Constitutionalists may claim they believe in these affirmations (just as surely as the Pharisees did in Yeshua’s day), in practice, they reject Yahweh as King, Judge, and Lawgiver, just as the Israelites did when they chose a flesh and blood king instead of Yahweh. Ironically, the Israelites desired to be like all the nations around them even though Yahweh had chosen them to be above the other nations:
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure [my own possession, NASB] unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. (Exodus 19:5-6)
And YHWH hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people [treasured possession, NASB], as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; and to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto YHWH thy God, as he hath spoken. (Deuteronomy 26:18-19)
Israel’s law observance and Yahweh’s subsequent blessings not only set the Israelites apart from other nations (in the same way 17th-century Christian America was set apart), they were also Yahweh’s witnesses to the rest of the world of the prosperity and blessings that come from serving Him according to His moral laws:
Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as YHWH my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as YHWH our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? (Deuteronomy 4:5-8)
YHWH our God be with us, as he was with our fathers: let him not leave us, nor forsake us: That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers. ….be nigh unto YHWH our God day and night, that he maintain the cause of his servant, and the cause of his people Israel at all times … that all the people of the earth may know that YHWH is God, and that there is none else. (1 Kings 8:57-60)
And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of YHWH’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of YHWH from Jerusalem. (Isaiah 2:2-3)
In Proverbs 14:34, Solomon said, “Righteousness exalteth a nation.” Conversely, in Isaiah 24:15, Isaiah proclaimed, “The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.”
Under the New Covenant, Yahweh has again chosen a Christian remnant of His people to reign as examples to the rest of the nations (Hebrews 8:8-9; 1 Peter 1:1-4, 2:9-10; Revelation 5:9-10). However, Christian Israel,8 as a whole, has rejected this position of honor by rejecting Yahweh as their King, Judge, and Lawgiver. Consequently, they have lost their privileged status – at least in practice – and have become less than all the nations around them, to be trampled under the foot of man (Matthew 5:13).
If we hope to reverse this condition, Christian Israel must enthrone Yahweh, not only in their hearts, but also in their homes, their churches, their communities, and eventually their nation and beyond. Enthroning Yahweh requires pursuit of Yahweh’s laws in every sphere of life. However, most Christians – if they pursue Yahweh’s laws at all – pursue them only in their hearts, homes, and churches. They leave their communities and nations to the non-Christians and to the laws of their gods, including WE THE PEOPLE’s United States Constitution.
The Dualism of “Christian” Constitutionalists
Christian Constitutionalists are like the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar who, on one hand, proclaimed Yahweh as the God of gods (Daniel 2:47) and, on the other hand, erected an image made in his own likeness (Daniel 3:1). What is interesting about this dualism is that most people do not realize they are inflicted with it. Aaron apparently did not realize he was practicing dualism when he dubbed the golden calf “Yahweh”:
And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf…. And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to YHWH. (Exodus 32:3-5)
A Christian’s devotion cannot be split between Yahweh’s perfect laws and man’s law:
How long halt ye between two opinions? If YHWH be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. (1 Kings 18:21)
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24)
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man…. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (Romans 2:21-25)
Romans 2 is a perfect portrayal of what comes from a government of, by, and for the people, versus a government of, by, and for Yahweh.
The claim of Christian Constitutionalism is as oxymoronic as the claim of Judeo-Christianity.9 It is spiritual schizophrenia. The United States Constitution is almost as antithetical and hostile to Yahweh’s laws as is the Babylonian Talmud.
As Christians and, therefore, subjects of the King of kings, our devotion is due exclusively to Yahweh and His kingdom and laws. Look up the word “devotion” in a thesaurus and you will find the following synonyms: fidelity, allegiance, ardor, fealty, loyalty, and homage. These are all forms of worship to which Yahweh claims exclusive rights:
Now I say this for your own welfare and profit, not to put (a halter of) restraint upon you, but to promote what is seemly and in good order and to secure your undistracted and undivided devotion to the Lord. (1 Corinthians 7:35, AMP)
For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin. But I am afraid, lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds should be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:2-3, NASB)
The betrothing the Apostle Paul mentions is in fulfillment of Hosea’s prophecy of the return of some of the ten-tribed house of Israel to Yahweh as His New Covenant bride:
And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know YHWH. (Hosea 2:19-20)
This and 1 Corinthians 10:1 identify the Corinthians as descendants of the house of Israel. (See Chapter 2 “The Kingdom: Yesterday, Today, and Forever” for more concerning Yahweh’s New Covenant marital relationship with Christian Israelites.10) Having betrothed a remnant of Israelites to Himself, whose covenant and laws do you suppose Yahweh intended them to keep?
Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah…. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith YHWH; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people. (Hebrews 8:8-10)
As a virgin espoused to Yahweh, Israel kept His law, but as an idolatrous whore, she kept the laws of her lovers. What does this make us when we choose some other law in addition to or above Yahweh’s law? To be devoted to a document that is not perfectly in accord with Yahweh’s laws is to reject His laws and, therefore, Yahweh Himself. If the two are in perfect accord – as some Constitutionalists naïvely claim – why do we even need the U.S. Constitution? Or someone might argue on the same grounds, why do we need the Bible?
If the U.S. Constitution is consonant with Yahweh’s laws, it is both redundant and superfluous. If it is not consonant with Yahweh’s laws, it is treasonous and seditious to Yahweh and His kingdom.
Inspired by the Bible?
Christian Constitutionalists would have us believe that the United States Constitution was inspired by the Bible. In Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s July 1, 2005, Internet post “Bible Inspired America’s Founding Documents,” he wrote the following:
The destruction of America’s founding principles can be traced to the country’s willful rejection of the Bible as our source of divine authority.11
I could not agree more: America’s founding principles – not those from the late 1700s, but those from the early 1600s, which were based upon Yahweh’s laws – have been destroyed by America’s willful rejection of the Bible, which began officially, nationally, and practically with the ratification of the United States Constitution. While no one would argue that a few Biblical principles can be found in the Constitution, we also find a plethora of instances in which the Constitution not only conflicts with biblical laws and principles, but in which it blatantly attacks Yahweh and His exclusive sovereignty and authority.
Baldwin is certainly not the only Constitutionalist who equates the Constitution with the Bible and Constitutionalism with Christianity. In response to Alabama’s Court order for Chief Justice Roy Moore to be dismissed from his bench for refusing to remove the Ten Commandments monument erected in front of the Alabama Supreme Court Building, the late Dr. D. James Kennedy paradoxically declared the following:
Today’s action by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary is a deplorable example of why our nation, and most particularly our judicial system needs to return to recognition of God and His law. Unable to discern between the rule of law and a federal court order that violates the rule of law contained in the U.S. Constitution, the Court of the Judiciary has removed Chief Justice Moore.12
Kennedy implied that a return to the Constitution is equivalent to a return to Yahweh and His law. I wonder how Yahweh feels about that? One might want to consider what Yahweh declared to the house of Israel just before He divorced them:
Israel is an empty vine, he bringeth forth fruit unto himself: according to the multitude of his fruit he hath increased the altars [to idols]; according to the goodness of his land they have made goodly images [sacred pillars, NASB]. Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: he shall break down their altars, he shall spoil their images. For now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared not YHWH…. (Hosea 10:1-3)
Yahweh declared that Israel was bringing forth fruit unto themselves. Is this not what “a government of, by, and for the people” does? Since the Constitution was ratified, the idols in America have multiplied a hundredfold. With the ratification of the Constitution, Christian America ceased to exist and a Judeo-Christian America commenced. It did not take long until America became completely polytheistic – one nation under many gods, in violation of the First Commandment “Thou shalt have no other gods besides Me [Yahweh].” (See Chapter 11 “Amendment 1: Government-Sanctioned Polytheism” for more regarding Amendment 1’s provision for polytheism.)
When Christians appeal to both the Bible and a Constitution that is antithetical and antagonistic to Yahweh’s laws, how can their hearts not be divided? In reality, such people no more serve Yahweh as their King than did the Israelites in Hosea’s day:
…the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return. And the sword shall abide on his cities, and shall consume his branches, and devour them, because of their own counsels [because they do what they themselves think best, TEV]. And my people are bent to backsliding from me: though they called them to the most High, none at all would exalt him. (Hosea 11:5-7)
In his editorial “Tom Anderson on Christianity and the Constitution” (in which the word “Constitution” is printed at least four times larger than is the word “Christianity”) Anderson declared that our loyalty as Christians is due, not to the perfect laws of Yahweh, but to the United States Constitution:
Some Christians contend that we should support whatever government is in power because it is ordained of God. But our authority, in this greatest of all free Republics, resides not in man, nor even in a majority vote in the Congress or the Supreme Court, but in the Constitution of the United States. It is to the Constitution that we owe our loyalty…. Let us remember that ours is not just America’s battle. Nor our personal battle. It is God’s battle.13
Our loyalty is due only to Yahweh and His laws. His battle and, thus, His subjects’ battle is not for Constitutionalism, but for His Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven, governed solely by His perfect laws.
In an interview with Bill Moyers on December 23, 1987, R.J. Rushdoony described the United States Constitution as “a good procedural manual”14 to be employed by Christian government. But how can something so contrary to Yahweh’s laws be a good procedural manual for those same laws? This is typical of today’s Christian Constitutionalists’ dialectical doublespeak. In his book Tools of Dominion: The Case Laws of Exodus, Rushdoony’s son-in-law, Gary North, commented on Rushdoony’s “procedural manual”:
Rushdoony says that the Constitution’s procedural morality can be and is legitimately religiously neutral, and that any interest group can adopt the Constitution’s procedural morality to create whatever law-order they choose, without violating the text of the nation’s covenanting document. But the text is all there is of the underlying religious foundation. If the text were silent, then there would be no formal underpinning. But the text is not silent. The text [Article 6] categorically prohibits the imposition of the biblical covenant oath in civil law. Let us put it covenantally: what the text of the U.S. Constitution prohibits is Christianity.
There can be no dualism in a covenantal document. It either serves the God of the Bible or some other god. There can be no neutrality. Constitutions are inherently substantive, but this ethical foundation is manifested in its procedural stipulations.15
What North described as dualism, the Prophet Daniel depicted as confusion:
O Lord, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day…. O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee…. Neither have we obeyed the voice of YHWH our God, to walk in his laws, which he set before us by his servants the prophets. Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us…. (Daniel 9:7-11)
What a perfect depiction of today’s Constitutional Republic’s government officials.
Cost and Reward
It is time for Christians to stop serving two masters. We must choose between the document that begins “We the People,” and the one that begins “In the beginning God.” We must choose between a government of, by, and for the people and a government of, by, and for Yahweh. Like Gideon in Judges 6, we must first tear down our fathers’ idol and altar before we can begin restoring Yahweh’s kingdom here on earth:
These are the statutes and judgments, which ye shall observe to do in the land, which Yahweh God of thy father’s giveth thee to possess it, all the days that ye live upon the earth. Ye shall utterly destroy all the places, wherein the nations … served their gods, upon the high mountains, and upon the hills, and under every green tree: And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fir; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place. (Deuteronomy 12:1-3)
Without question, this is a costly decision. It will, at the very least, demand a change in beliefs. It will cost some people their pride. It will cost relationships, perhaps fellowship, and, for some, even their ministries. People will be persecuted.16 However, any cost incurred will be far exceeded by the rewards of choosing correctly: Yahweh’s pleasure and blessings, the legacy we leave our posterity, and the foundations for what will ultimately be the near elimination of crime from society.
If WE THE PEOPLE be God, follow them! But if Yahweh be God, we must follow Him! As for me and my house and everyone who truly believes that Yahweh, His Kingdom, and His laws are perfect and sufficient – we will follow and serve Yahweh, the God of gods, King of kings, and Lord of lords in heaven and here on earth now.
