If You Can Keep It, by Gai M. Ferdon, Ph.D.
America’s authentic liberty confronts
historic Biblical principles of civil and religious liberty are just as
relevant to the complex issues presented by the twenty-first century as they
were when the Founding Fathers penned the U.S. Constitution. This book will
equip readers to contend against postmodern principles which are destructive
counterfeits of true Biblical principles. America's historic values and the
seven pillar principles that framed her liberty are explained including: the
Christian principle of self-government, “Conscience is the most sacred of all
property”, and the Christian form of local self-government.
Included in this bundle
is the first part of a
four-part lecture by Dr. Gai Ferdon, “General Overview of the U.S.
Constitutional Order and System: The Nature of the Declaration of Independence
as the Charter of the Nation and the Rise of Federalism with the U.S.
Constitution”. This lecture explains the role of government as a “punisher of
evildoers”. Our founders understood this and strictly limited the powers of the
federal government as they drafted the Constitution. They did not see
government as a “provider” but knew God designed us to provide for ourselves.
