This is a letter to our friends –

“For the greater good!”

CAUTION – when you hear that phrase, “For the greater good”. Built into it is a violation of individual God-given liberty.

In the beginning humans (you and I) were placed upon this earth by God for a purpose – to love God and love others. By doing so, we bring honor to God and peace and prosperity to earth. By the way – “love” = Unselfishly wanting the very best for the loved one.

Consider – nothing exists without a set of laws (rules of action) to govern (direct, regulate, control, restrain) it. Outside those laws is chaos.

It is self-evident that God gave you life. God also gave you the liberty to obtain the things needed to sustain your life. True pursuit of happiness is found in loving God and others.

“Laws of Nature” are discovered by God-given reason and human observation. It is self-evident that God makes no duplicates. He deals in individuality. Each of us (you and I) are individuals with God-given unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Our nation was created by, “We the people” for the express purpose of protecting those individual rights. YOU are at LIBERTY under God. American civil government exists to protect your individual liberty.

American civil-government cannot give you liberty. – It only has authority to protect it.

American civil-government has no authority over your individual liberty, except that portion you exchange for protection.. Any governance beyond those limits will cause chaos and is to be considered as no law at all. If you choose to submit to unlawful governance, you have submitted to tyranny.

Let us NOT tacitly surrender our God-given life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness for a mess of pottage!

Rather – Let us rise to the challenge to use these God-given rights as they were intended –

Love God and love others!
