EDITORIAL:         The Two-Legged Stool

People need government; governors need people but their respective interests too often conflict, reducing benefit for both. People and government are two legs of the stool called human progress; the third leg is the external, immutable presence we call God. People, including those who are governors, will follow their natural inclinations to maximize their own interests unless they are restrained or restrain themselves and therefore, require an outside, recognized reference point to serve as their standard. American Founder John Adams referred to that when he said that the new U.S. Constitution was appropriate only for a moral and religious people.

The Christianity that provided American stability has been largely abandoned by Americans at the expense of both good behavior and good government; no replacement is in sight, leaving Godvernment to naturally appear to fill that vacuum. Godvernment must be blasphemy for Biblical believers; it amounts to assigning the wolf to lead the sheep for the practically minded. It is not a coincidence that modernity is the product of Judeo-Christian people; for a milieu that will produce more of that, we must rediscover the external, Supreme Lawgiver..
