The Seven Principles of Liberty
Mondays, June 22–August 10, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
In our Chesapeake, Virginia classroom, or live online!
Riots and civil unrest in our beloved nation! What can one individual do? Learn and apply the seven governmental principles of the Principle Approach® and become part of the revival and reformation of liberty that is so desperately needed in today’s society. These principles provide lasting solutions for your life, your family, your church and our nation.
Individuality: Our sovereign God created each individual with a unique purpose and identity. The enemy perverts individuality through the ideas of collectivism and multiculturalism.
Christian character: A people cannot remain free under a republican form of government unless they remain virtuous and morally upright.
Christian self-government: Liberty exists in proportion to Christian self-government.
Local self-government and jurisdiction: Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to civil governments; all others are retained by the people or other institutions or authorities.
Biblical form of government: Governmental forms are not equal; the freest form of government is one that is Biblical, embodying these aspects: systems of checks and balances, written constitution, separation of powers, government of fixed equally applied laws, protection of equal rights, maximization of individual liberties particularly freedom of religion and liberty of conscience.
Private Property: 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 the continual assaults upon them.
Unity and Union: Internal unity is necessary for a strong union to remain secure. We must know when to unite and when to refrain from uniting (Ecclesiastes 3:5)
