Social Contracts

Social contracts make use of at least two legal concepts or structures. One can be called a trust and the other is a corporation.

Governments cannot exist unless men create them. Man may vest something of himself into the forming of that government. As God formed man and breathed life into him, so also may men form and breathe life into the body or corpus of a governments.

Or we may also give something of value to men we trust for a particular purpose, whereby the government becomes a trust. If what we give is given entirely it may be called a sacred purpose trust. Or government may make use of both trust and corporation.

The most common form of government used throughout history is not the centralized governments of control and top down authority so commonly seen today. A diversified and voluntary network of people bound by a common faith, mutual hope, and practiced charity has often formed successful governments throughout history. In fact, “our modern reliance on government to make law and establish order is not the historical norm.”3

Voluntary governments like that of Israel before the rise of the kings depended on the people freely choosing to give a share of their wealth in sacrifice or what was called Corban [Nbrq]4 to fulfill the needs of society. That which was given in the form of substance and service sustained the government of the people, with the offerings by the people, for the sake of a free people.

If Jesus talks about an “unrighteous Mammon”5 is there a righteous mammon? The Aramaic word for entrusted wealth is called Ma’amon.6 That which was freely given was righteous.
