About “Blessings of Liberty”

“Blessings of Liberty” explores political philosophy, law, government, and culture from a biblical perspective. We seek to honor, critique, and improve the American experiment in liberty by orienting it toward the Bible’s vision of a just society. That vision, rooted in a Hebraic worldview, inspired our ancestors to build a nation that remains the world’s oldest continuous democracy. May God grant that it will endure.

The name: Blessings of Liberty

The name is drawn from the Preamble to the United States Constitution:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The Preamble reminds us that liberty is a precious gift that must be stewarded—not for ourselves only, but also for our children and grandchildren, “our Posterity.” Our national Constitution is more than a “social contract.” It is a covenant that binds our own welfare to that of future generations.

The theme: sapphire

We have chosen sapphire (#0F52BA) as our primary color, inspired by Exodus 24:10: “And they saw the God of Israel. There was under his feet as it were a pavement of sapphire stone, like the very heaven for clearness” (ESV).
