“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insuredomestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure theBlessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for theUnited States of America.”The Constitution is an agreement that was made by the Founders to establish a government of ‘We the people,’ based on the natural law of God. Its primary purpose is to secure the blessings of Libertywhich come forth from the Creator which was proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence. TheConstitution of the United States is looked upon as the ‘supreme law’ of the land but it is in realitymerely a contract on how to secure the rights which are given to man by their Creator.The foundation of the Constitution is the Declaration of Independence. In order to understand what theConstitution truly is, one must look to the Declaration of Independence and the writings of the menwho agreed upon this government.“Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted theConstitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.” {James
 
Madison}The Declaration of Independenceclick herebegins with a proclamation that all men are equal and givenunalienable rights by their Creator. The Government of American then is based upon the Natural Lawof God.“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, theseparate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decentrespect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to theseparation.”“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”“Locke, in particular, was the authority to whom the Patriots paid greatest deference.” {C. EdwardMosheim – A History of American Political Theories}John Locke, to whom Thomas Jefferson and the Founders relied upon, defined The Natural Law as theWill of Godclick here.Locke spoke of the Natural Law, or the Law of Reason as the Law of God in which man was givenfrom the beginning.“The Law, that was to govern Adam, was the same, that was to govern all his Posterity, the Law of Reason.“Adam was created a perfect Man, his Body and Mind in full possession of their Strength and Reason,and so was capable, from the first Instant of his Being to provide for his own Support and Preservation,and govern his Actions according to the Dictates of the Law of Reason which God had implanted inhim.”John Locke defined the Natural Law as the Will of God.“Thus the Law of Nature stands as an Eternal Rule to all Men, Legislators as well as others. The Rulesthat they make for other Men’s Actions, must, as well as their own, and other Men’s Actions, beconformable to the Law of Nature, i.e. to the Will of God, of which that is a Declaration, and the
 
fundamental Law of Nature being the preservation of Mankind, no Human Sanction can be good, or valid against it.” {John Locke – Of Civil Government pg 94}The Holy Scriptures define the will of God as His Wordclick here(Psalm 40:8; Matthew 12:50; Luke8:21).Samuel Adams, who Jefferson proclaimed as the ‘Father of the American Revolution’ further established Locke’s definition as that which the Founders believed in.Thomas Jefferson credited Samuel Adams with ‘steering’ America towards Independence.“If there was any Palinurus to the Revolution, Samuel Adams was the man.” Palinurus was thehelmsman of Aeneas’s ship in Virgil’s ‘Aeneid.’Jefferson also declared Samuel Adams as “truly the Man of the Revolution.” {Old Revolutionaries – Maier Pauline pg 5}“…The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty…’The Rights of the Colonists as Christians’…may be best understood by reading and carefully studying the institutes of the great Law Giver andHead of the Christian Church, which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the NewTestament.” {Samuel Adams – Rights of the Colonists}
