Light of True Liberty
National system without compromise with biblical principles of government
This is NOT a political campaign!
This is NOT a political party!
This is NOT suggesting or promoting insurrection against any government!
This IS the hope that new nations will be peacefully formed, without compromise with biblical principles of government!
This IS about the establishment of biblical statecraft, making politics, and politicians, obsolete!
This IS our purpose — to institute government as a healthy organization — with the core values of Liberty and the Rule of God’s Law!
What does “Light of True Liberty” mean?
Counterfeit liberty is when the civil magistrate thinks they give us our rights, but our rights are really God-given. This distinction is critically important, and this is where America, and so many other nations, have gone down the wrong road, to their peril. Biblical liberty, true liberty, is the freedom to do what is right, with The Holy Bible as the basis for right and wrong.
The Light of True Liberty shines out from God’s Word. When we acknowledge God in all our ways — when we make worship a lifestyle, not just an occasional event — when we stand on the authority of God’s Word, the historic Christian faith — we are promoting The Light of True Liberty and it is shining through us. God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. Jesus Christ is The Light of True Liberty. The Bible calls us the children of light. As Christians, we are not The Light of True Liberty, but we are uniting to shine that light to the world.

Deep in the heart of every human soul is the temptation to control other people. Among other things, this is the source of religious cults and communist regimes. When people hear about a bunch of Christians who want to form a society together, it sounds like a commune. Red flags start waving warnings against a cult with dark secrets. The Light of True Liberty drives away the darkness. It drives away the human tendency towards cults and communism. It is the opposite of a cult. The Light of True Liberty is the antidote.
Many people, when they hear that I am starting a new nation, will assume that I want to be president, or king, because I want to have power and control. That is a very valid concern. It is perfectly understandable that they would think such a thing because that is the way the unbiblical governments have been run. However, a biblical government would not be structured in a way that allows any one person, or any group of people, to wield undue power or be free from accountability. One reason I am starting a new country is so we can use biblical concepts and methods to diffuse power, so that it will not be a temptation for those servants who will be running the government, nor a danger of tyranny.
Instead of power struggles and intrigue, we will have deliberation in the open forum of society. Politicians will be obsolete. Instead we will have true leadership. People who use influence, rather than coercion, to advance a good cause.
When America was founded, they became a good influence on every region of the globe. When they abolished the slave trade in 1807, The Light of True Liberty shone even brighter. For many decades, this amazing American experiment showed the world, as an example, what blessings rain down as we come closer and closer to biblical government.
Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
John 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, [saying], I have both glorified [it], and will glorify [it] again.
God is again preparing to shine His Light — The Light of True Liberty. This brilliance will glorify His Name anew. By learning from history, we shall stand on the shoulders of giants and conduct the next stage of the experiment. Stronger than ever before in history, we will lay our foundation on bedrock to institute a national system without compromise with biblical principles of government.
The benefits of this system will not only provide liberty to those who choose to make their home in these new nations, but also show the way for other nations, including America, to reform. Since the world is now smaller than it was 200 years ago, with people, commerce, and ideas more freely flowing between nations, the good influence will be even more powerful.
For their unpardoned evil here on Earth, each person will be judged, convicted, and sentenced. Some of the consequences for these actions will come in this life, some in the next life. Nations are also judged for their actions. But a nation does not have an after-life, so all of the consequences for unpardoned national actions must be faced here on Earth. God is a just Judge and requires justice.
There are several times in the Bible when God pronounced His judgement on a nation. With one exception, each time God gave the option to repent and avoid destruction. There is one time in the Bible when God said He would not offer pardon for the nation. It was when that nation had shed much innocent blood. 2 Kings 24:4 “The LORD would not pardon.” The king, who was responsible for the bloodshed, had already repented, after decades of evil, and had become a believer, but that was not sufficient in this case. The only options they were given were different forms of national destruction. There was no option available to avoid the downfall of the nation.
Government is an institution of God. The purpose of government is criminal justice. When a nation’s government turns to promoting evil, it does not make sense to expect that nation to get away with this evil for long.
Because they have shed much innocent blood over the years, America is doomed. This is why we left.
Proverbs 22:3 A prudent [man] foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
We have no intention of aiding the fall of America, but when God tells me where lightning is going to strike, I don’t stand there.
When America falls, the support for thousands of missionaries around the world will be lost. The free market economy of this new nation would serve as a funding source replacement for the missionaries, before the American support is lost. God has laid on my heart to pray that He will show me where in the world we are to locate this new nation for those of us who speak English. We can also partner and network with kindred spirits who want to establish affiliate nations for others who speak another language.
When there were three million people in the American colonies, they made a good prototype of biblical government: The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, etc. As good as they did, they were forced to make significant compromises with Scripture. My calling is to establish a new national system that does not compromise with New Testament biblical principles of government. Of course, there will still be individuals, whether through malice or mistake, who will compromise, but the design of the system will be in complete accord with Scripture.
Roughly 350 million people in the world speak English natively. Maybe twice that many speak English fluently. Of that 700 million people, a conservative estimate would be that 70 million are true Christians (they trust Christ, thus Christ is on the throne of their life, thus Christ, the Word of God, is their ultimate authority). Out of that 70 million, perhaps 20 million would already be of the persuasion that it would be a blessing, and a worthwhile goal, to live in a nation chartered without compromise with New Testament biblical principles of government.
There is no such nation, at the moment. Such light has been eclipsed.
It is safe to say that two million, out of the 20 million who would like to, are ready to establish such a nation, right now, and that we could find one million of them. It almost goes without saying that hundreds of companies would be delighted and eager to operate their business in a place where there is true liberty; no government interference in non-criminal activities. Let’s allow The Light of True Liberty to shine out to the world again! Is there not a cause!?
Here is a list of reasons someone might want to live in such a country:
- You want to live in a country that is pro-life and defends the innocent and vulnerable — an ethos of life, where a fellow human does not need to be perfect, or convenient, to be fully valued.
- You want to live in a country where The Light of True Liberty shines out to the world, benefitting billions.
- You want to live in a country where the poor get complete justice, not just the wealthy.
- You want to live in a country where business is allowed to thrive and flourish, to the benefit of society, rather than government hindering and harassing the free market.
- You want to live in a country that is like a safe neighborhood, not infested with hoodlums.
- You want to live in a country where the government is limited, so that every crisis, whether real or fabricated, does not cause the power of government to increase, never to reduce again, because this will eventually lead to tyranny.
- You want to live in a country where the government does not take your money by force to use in ways you disapprove.
- You want to live in a country where you can pray for God’s blessings on your country, and where you can support the defense of your country from enemies, because the people are living in the fear of God, thus safe from God’s wrath.
- You want to live in a country where the children are raised by their parents, not by the state.
- You want to live in a country where you are not oppressively taxed.
- You want to live in a country where weapons are not restricted for good citizens, so they can have the best defense.
- You are not looking for Utopia, just the liberty and responsibility that God offers to those who govern their country by His principles in His Word, the Holy Bible.
Biblical role of government
When it comes to control and intervention, the biblical role of government is strictly limited to criminal justice.
NOT titles of nobility or royalty.
NOT money, as this would be done by the blockchain (distributed ledger database, etc.) services, banks, etc.
NOT property ownership titles, as this would be done by the blockchain title insurance services, etc.
NOT marriage, as this would be done by The Church.
NOT safety regulations, as this would be done by the insurance companies in conjunction with the standards services.
NOT postal services, charitable giving, weather reporting or forecasting, education, insurance, licensing, or certification (organic, skills, birth, death, identity, etc.).
NOT roads or utilities, as this would be done by utilities jointly owned by the customers or by corporations.
NOT prevention of crime, except that prevention inherent in justly prosecuting, convicting, and sentencing the crime after the fact.
NOT providing or regulating medical or health care, except that regulation inherent in criminal justice.
NOT preservation of culture and society, as this would be done by consortia and charities, etc., extending on the covenant.
NOT legislation, as this has already been done by God in His Word.
NOT police or military, as this would be provided by volunteers and security services funded by corporations.
NOT taxes, as this would give government far too much power, leading to tyranny. Criminal justice can easily be self-funded.
Church and State
The Church is an institution ordained of God. Government is an institution ordained of God. They are two separate institutions. The Bible does not prescribe that the Church should run the government. The biblical Church does not have carnal power, most especially not over the government. Yes, we will have godly people serving in the government, using biblical principles, but that is not the Church running the government. That is the Rule of Law — God’s Word. We do not need to have a secular government in order to keep the two institutions separate. Let’s run our families in a biblical way. Let’s run our government in a biblical way. Let’s run our church in a biblical way. Hey, let’s even run our businesses, utilities, clubs, societies, charities, and every institution in a biblical way. Let’s allow the Word of God, Jesus Christ, our only King, rule each of these directly, with no intermediary.
Biblically, people are at liberty to enter into lawful contracts, of their own volition. Ungodly requirements in a contract, would make it null and void, thus an unlawful contract. Unless there is mutual agreement, breaking a lawful contract is a crime. On this basis, our nations will have a charter for a covenant. There are some sinful behaviours that are not crimes, but they are still destructive to society. This covenant would define the biblical values of good behaviour. The purpose of our nation is to establish a society of people who hold these values. By residing in any premise or property tied to this covenant, each person is agreeing to abide by the principles of this covenant.
Rather than military conquest, we will establish and expand our nation based on land purchase. Any land will be worth far more once it becomes part of our nation. Thus, the seller will get a much better price than they could get any other way and we will still get more value that what we paid; win-win. Of course, some nearby land owner may want to tie some property to the covenant, so this could also be done without any purchase.
