Magistrate Letter 1
You are appreciated and you are being prayed for.
The Southern National Congress recognizes that law in our State is derived from the English Common Law which is Biblical in origin. Our form of government traces back beyond the Greek republic to the representative forms of Israel under Moses. We believe in ordered Christian liberty.
As our representative in government, God has decreed that you are His minister.
Rom 13:3&4 – For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. …(4) For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
It is God who has lifted you to your position of authority.
Although we might not always agree on the issues which we face, we recognize that your responsibility in government is not only to the citizens of our State but primarily to the Lord. It is He that placed you in your position of responsibility. We may vote, but He determines the outcome. “By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.” (Proverbs 8:15)
Because you are the Almighty’s minister and it is He who has placed you in that position of responsibility, you have our respect and our prayers.
The desire of the Southern National Congress is to see vibrant State governments which creatively solve their own problems without interference or dictates from sources outside our respective States. That will not be possible without both our and your prayers and work.
May God grant you peace and wisdom at this time of year when we celebrate the incarnation of the Prince of Peace.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue?
