The Price of Surety

“Many a man thinks he is buying pleasure, when he is really selling himself a slave to it.”Ben Franklin.

Modern society is in bondage as a surety.131 Men have sold themselves a surety for debt and are suffering for it.

“He that is surety for a stranger shall smart [for it]: and he that hateth suretiship is sure.” Proverbs 11:15

A contract “arises from the principles of natural law: it is voluntary, and founded in consent: it involves mutual and reciprocal obligations; and it is for mutual benefit… the use of the thing is the object.”132

The captivity of the people has often been established through the acceptance of benefits granted by a contractual submission to the feigned benevolence of government. When the benefit is provided through debt the former beneficiary is snared as a surety.

The Bible is the story of men rejecting the rule by God and going into servitude under the governments of men, which is sin. The Ten Laws are the constitution of God’s government. Christ’s redemption and command for us to live by faith, hope and charity, loving our neighbor and not coveting his goods is our surety.133

Have we made covenants with God or with men and their gods? A contract is the law that binds us and there is no relief in Federal or State governments who by their own natures must hold you to the contracts of your own making.

“Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?” Galatians 4:8, 9
