Where does government power come from if it is not from the people?
Where do the people’s rights come from if it is not from God?
This makes sense:
The bible tells us that God created the earth, then he created the plants and the animals and finally he created man.
God gave man his life. God also gave man the right to rule over the animals and the earth. God wanted man to take of the elements God had made and improve upon them. As long as man does not infringe on the rights of others he should be free in his pursuit of happiness. Man has a right to his life, to his liberty and to the right to own property and do with his property what he wants as long as he doesn’t infringe on the rights of others.
Government does not give men these rights. Governments were organized by man to help him protect his rights. When men in governmental positions take away the rights of men instead of protecting them, they should have a very good reason for doing so because, they will one day have to answer to God for taking away the rights of man that God gave him.
I hope governmental leaders will think about this when they are making laws that put restrictions on man and his rights instead of protecting those rights.
To protect your rights know what laws, your federal, state and city government leaders are making and voice your opinions.
