The following article presents the Biblical foundations for the principles of the Christian Liberty Party. They are succinct, cursory comments on four areas: (1) the importance of worldviews; (2) the beginning axiom of the Biblical worldview; (3) no neutrality; and (4) the source of law.

Objection #5: “I’m a Christian, but I’m not attempting to force my beliefs on others like those Christians on the radical right.”
Often you will hear people say, ”I have nothing against Christians or anyone else getting involved in politics; after all, I’m a Christian.” They suppose that such a statement adds credibility to their indictment of Christians in public office, but what it really does is demonstrate their misunderstanding of Scripture. Their god is little more than some undefined dispenser of salvation for the hereafter. The more undefined their god and the less time they spend thinking about their god the better, because then they can imagine that they aren’t accountable to act in any specific way toward him (or her, or it). This type of thinking, however, is completely unbiblical. The Creator God has revealed His inerrant Word and preserved it throughout the ages so that everyone can understand the proper way to live and interact with others.

For 30 years I have watched with astonishment as our nation has sunk ever deeper into debt, even during times of peace and prosperity. A long, sorry procession of so-called “debt ceilings,” pay-as-you-go rules, and balanced budget proposals have all failed miserably, with each being promptly discarded the moment it threatens to actually reduce spending. Today, having achieved the shameful distinction of world’s greatest debtor nation, we project massive trillion dollar federal deficits to continue indefinitely. Yet every effort to trim deficits, even by just a few percent, generates a national political crisis. Our president ignores...

Many Christians groan at every news report covering the latest in ungodly government action. And after most elections there is a similar, but deeper, disappointment and frustration. But as Edmund Burke reportedly said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” God has not given us a timid spirit, and He empowers us by His Spirit to do what is right regardless of the circumstances (2 Timothy 1:7). And we see from Daniel’s faithful life during the dark days of unrighteous rule under Kings Nebuchadnezzar and Darius, as God’s people are faithful to Him, God does the impossible. Here’s...

What We Really Ought to Know Mark Twain once said, “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” In raising awareness of this timeless truth, Twain may not have realized that he was also raising awareness of one of Satan’s most effective tactics to delay his final defeat. Before revealing this most effective tactic, let’s take a brief walk in his shoes and look at the world through his ancient eyes. As God’s former top angel, he is literally older than dirt because he was created before the earth. He also heard first hand of how God planned to...
