The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“Fundamental Rights are those rights that we can derive from a universal non-conflicting criteria that allows all men to exercise their maximum free will without infringing on others rights, equally claimed, nor forcing others to serve their needs. These non conflicting rights are inviolable, and superior to all forms of human government, and therefore not subject to political confirmation. This is a radically new concept to those schooled to believe that the highest form of justice comes by democratic means. It becomes clear, under the concept of “inviolable rights” that fundamental rights should never be subject to ratification, even in a constitution, though they should be recognized and referred to by it. To do so would subordinate one’s fundamental rights to the will of a majority–those who will vote for such fundamental rights, or worse yet, to deny them legal status by voting against them. ” – Joel Skousen, author of: Strategic Relocation: North American Guide to Safe Places

  1. The problem with this philosophy is that is is humanist to the core. It is not Christian at all. This places man as the one who determines what is good or evil (Genesis 3:4-5) and leaves the Law giving God of scripture and His moral law out of the picture. This religion has allowed for the redefinition of love and good and evil by our culture.

    Christians have embraced libertarianism because the Christian church has forgotten and / or misunderstands the difference between the ceremonial and the moral (Ten Commandments) law. Scripture teaches that the ceremonial law was done away with by the advent and sacrifice of Christ while the moral law reflects the holiness of God.

    Scripture teaches there remains three uses for the moral law in the life of a Christian:

    First, the moral law condemns mankind and teaches us our need for a savior
    Once a person comes to Jesus Christ as Savior, the moral law no longer condemns them but then has a second use as a standard for sanctification. This important and will ruin an individual, family or nation when it is rejected as a standard for morals and law. That brings us to the third use which is as a standard for good and evil by which the civil magistrate / culture judges and punishes evil. Today in America, good is now considered evil and what used to be called evil is now called good.

    We must choose who we will serve and by what standard we shall live.
