True servants of the Lord Jesus Christ confess that He is the Creator God of heaven and earth, Redeemer of mankind, Judge of all the earth, and King of kings and Lord of lords. All power and authority is His.
He only is sovereign – not citizens, not federal or state governments or civil officers.
By Arthur Jay Hirsch
Holy Scripture, i.e. the Bible, is the Word of God and is the supreme authority inall areas of life – yes, even in courtrooms!
God ordained that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Luke 11:2) God’s divine law is revealed in Scripture and His natural laws are written on our hearts and minds as our conscience. God’s laws are superior to man-made laws, and everyone is commanded to obey them, i.e. “Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” (Eccl. 12:13) “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength; this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12: 30, 31)
All our rights come from our Creator – not from the state. They enable us to fulfill God’s will and purpose for us on earth. Our rights are permanently ours from birth to death– unless we trespass on the rights of others – and cannot be lawfully taken away by state statutes.
Civil rulers are God’s ministers and are to protect our individual God-given rights by punishing evil and praising good. (Romans 13:4) Primary rights are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and are established in Scripture. (Acts 17:25, 28) Bible-based secondary rights supporting our primary rights include right to self-defense, right to travel, right to private property, etc.
Let us put Christ’s sovereignty and the supreme authority of the Word of God back into America’s legal system.

Manmade law (man’s positive law) can be valid law until it conflicts with God’s law. An example: testing a person to see if he is competent to operate a vehicle and able to understand the rules of the road (this is viewed as a safety measure) does not appear to conflict with God’s law.
The conflict appears to be when the certification is changed to a license (privilege) with the person being being punished for not having the license. Saying that operating a vehicle is a privilege has nothing — zero — to do with safety. This is 100 percent a money-raising scheme.
If you do not pay the privilege tax they have another way of getting it. It is called a FINE or jail time or both. SAFETY, where is a safety issue in this fund raising scheme? A book could be written about this. The big question would be: Was God’s law breached when operating a vehicle was switched from being a police power (safety) issue to being a revenue-raising issue?
Looking at the drivers license scheme from the government side and all you can see is MONEY, MONEY, MONEY MONEY. My right to drive to work, to the store, to church, to wherever is not for sale. Also, my right to go from point A to point b is not a lawful source of government revenue.
