Liberty's Light

A Christian forum dedicated to the discussion of how a nation based entirely off of biblical principles ought to be like. We believe that Righteousness Exalteth a Nation, and that God's righteous hand is necessary for the blessing of any nation.

Liberty’s Light Forum

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom He hath chosen for his own inheritance." (Psalms 33:12)
"Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." (Proverbs 14:34)
"But in every nation he that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with Him." (Acts 10:35)

Can there be such a thing as a biblical nation? How is a biblically founded nation any better than other form of government? Is a biblical nation a realistic possibility? These are important questions for Christians around the world to ask as they look at the system of government they live under. The answers can be found here at Liberty’s Light Forum. Our forum is dedicated to the exploration of God’s Word and history in regards to biblical government and economics, the equipping of other Christians in these areas, and the transformation of countries from secular to biblical nations.

Our goal is three-fold.
1. Glorify God in all we do and in the way we do it.
2. Share with others what we have learned.
3. Reform our own government to become a biblical government or, if necessary, found our own biblical nation.

Our mission is simply:
To learn, equip, and apply what the Bible and history teach about biblical government. We want to know and live out what God has taught us, through Scripture, and to teach other Christians these things so that we can better impact the world for the glory of God. We consider a biblically run nation a possibility that is worth the effort and sacrifice needed to become a reality.

“The diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty.” -James Madison

“In times like the present, men should utter nothing for which they would not willingly be responsible through time and in eternity.” -Abraham Lincoln

These two quotes sum up what we are about. We want to determine truth about government from a biblical perspective so that we will be willingly “responsible through time and in eternity” for the things that we fight for in regards to government, liberty, and the founding of a nation. We want to diffuse this knowledge to the people to safeguard their liberty. 2 Timothy 2:15-16- "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness."

We have two fundamental assumptions at this forum.

First, the Bible is God’s infallible and sufficient source for truth and must be the foundation for all of our beliefs. 2 Timothy 3:16-17- "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."

Second, is the assumption that we can learn much from history that will help guide us in our actions in the future.

“History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is.” -Thomas Jefferson

“History repeats itself.” -Clarence Darrow

Here at Liberty’s Light Forum, we purpose to learn from the mistakes of bad government so as not to repeat them again. We measure all discussions up against the Bible first, and history second; determining the best course of action to take. Most people don’t realize how replete the Bible is with principles that govern every facet of our lives. We are here to dig up these truths and share them with others.

We welcome you to this forum and encourage you to dig into Scripture to find what it says about government. Please prayerfully consider joining and contributing to our forum.

To God be the glory,
-Caleb
