In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was "Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God." America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over. By the 21st century, we need a "Puritan Storm" to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is "God walking on earth."
This booklet gives a primer on our founders' Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).
