"When the French monarch proposed the persecution of Christians in his dominion, an old statesman and warrior said to him, “Sire, the church of God is an anvil that has worn out many hammers.' So the hammers of infidels have been pecking away at this book for ages, but the hammers are worn out, and the anvil still endures. If this book had not been the book of God, men would have destroyed it long ago. Emperors and popes, kings and priests, princes and rulers have all tried their hand at it; they die and the book still lives.” "No other book has been so chopped, knived, sifted, scrutinized, and vilified. What book on philosophy or religion or psychology or belles lettres of classical or modern times has been subject to such a mass attack as the Bible? With such venom and skepticism? With such thoroughness and erudition? Upon every chapter, line and tenet? "Infidels of eighteen hundred years have been making ceaseless attempts at refuting and overthrowing this book, and yet it stands today as solid rock. Its circulation increases, and it is more loved and cherished and read today than ever before. Infidels, with all their assaults, make about as much impression on this book as a man with a tack hammer would on the Pyramids of Egypt. H.L. Hastings
The Foundation Of law and The Law
All law and order, all societies, rests upon some legal authority. There must be a source or foundation for the laws and jurisprudence of a nation. Many different modes of law and justice have been devised, yet after thousands of years of struggle along these lines the world has failed to find any system of law and justice, which can compare with that which is taught in the Bible. Human legal systems come and go and are continually in the process of reform and change, but the eternal principles of justice, truth and righteousness established by God for man are unchanged. They have endured the test of time by way of their proven effectiveness. Thus, all equitable codes of jurisprudence are founded upon Biblical teachings and principles, and indeed must conform to them, as Sir William Blackstone well says: Upon these two foundations, the law of nature and the law of revelation [Holy Scriptures] depend all human laws; that is to say, no human laws should be suffered to contradict these [1 B1. Comm.42]. Blackstone further stipulates that human laws are only declaratory of, and act in subordination to, divine and natural laws; and should any human law allow or enjoin us to do what divine law has prohibited, we are bound to transgress that human law. [1 Bl. Comm. 42-43].
It is Undeniable that Gods Law supersedes man’s law
God forbid, we establish the Law.” [Romans 3:31.] Definition of establish: create, institute, set up, initiate, start Sir William Blackstone clearly understood scripture. If ever the law of God and man are at variance, the former are to be obeyed in derogation of the later. [Acts 5:29]. "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." [Isaiah 55:8-9]
It is our duty and we are bound to Obey God & God’s Laws
Duties may be considered in the relation of man towards God, towards himself, and towards mankind. 1. We are bound to obey the will of God as far as we are able to discover it, because he is the sovereign Lord of the universe

who made and governs all things by his almighty power, and infinite wisdom. Bouvier's Law Dictionary 1856 Edition No guilt attaches to him who is compelled to obey Bouvier’s Law Dictionary 1856 edition The Laws of God are IMMUTABLE. What cannot be removed, what is unchangeable. The laws of God being perfect are immutable, but no human law can be so considered. Bouvier's Law Dictionary 1856 Edition. God’s Law is irreproachable… We can do nothing against Truth. [2 Corinthians 13:8] [Deuteronomy 32:4]: God is Truth – [Psalm 119:142]: The Law is Truth Lex est ab aeterno. The Law is from everlasting. Bouvier's Law Dictionary 1856 Edition. God’s Law is perfect and everlasting. Gods Law doesn't go away because man re-invents his own laws. Bouvier's Law Dictionary 1856 Edition God's law is also proven eternal and everlasting in scripture. [Psa 119:152,160] [Psa 111:7-8]
Bouvier’s recognizes that Gods Law and the land are the same
"Le ley de Dieu et ley de terre sont tout un, et l'un et l'autre preferre et favour le common et publique bien del terre--The law of God and the law of the land are all one; and both preserve and favor the common good of the land." Bouvier's Law Dictionary (1914), "Maxim," p. 2142. "Legem terrae amittentes perpetuam infamiae notam inde merito incurrunt-- Those who do not preserve the law of the land, then justly incur the ineffaceable brand of infamy." Bouvier's Law Dictionary (1914), 'Maxim," p. 2142. The lex non scripta is the law of the land because it preserves both the Christian Man and the state. Whoever rebels against the laws of the land [God] shall be put to death. [Josh. 1:18]. Note: Do not confuse God’s Law of the Land with the common law; which is founded from the Custom of Merchants, Law-Merchant, Law of Merchants and Roman law. Man's observance of divine law is essential in his moral conduct, economic well being, and social order, just as the physical laws are essential in an orderly universe. The Bible contains those precepts and commands which constitute the legal and moral authority to guide human conduct. There is no doubtful authority contained in the words: "Thus saith the LORD." This is the authority all law and justice must be founded upon. Biblical justice consists of an exact and scrupulous regard for the rights of others, with a deliberate purpose to preserve them on all occasions sacred and inviolate, and for the perpetual disposition to render every man his due. The Bible also contains many rules, regulations and laws for the creation, maintenance and enforcement of oaths and contracts, which are essential acts for both conducting daily business and in administering justice. See: Biblical Law for Oaths, Vows and Contracts Laws of Biblical society held that one who had undertaken a duty or obligation, in legal form, must fully and exactly perform it, at all regards. If a man acted, he did so at his own risk. It was his duty to keep his eyes open and abide by the consequences of his agreement and the law of the land. Biblical justice stresses the importance of requiring two or more witnesses in order to condemn a person of some offense. In Biblical law, as it is today, it is mandatory that witnesses give their testimony in the presence of the accused and that they testify by oath. Legal fictions cannot make claims and give testimony against bondmen, as they [as Legal Fictions] have not the breath of life and lack the authority to perfect a claim at Law. Where there is no Law there is no transgression therefore, a bondman cannot transgress against or offend a Legal Fiction.
