The Reformed Presbyterian Church and Civil Liberty

RPCNA Banner

“The Reformed Presbyterian Church approves of some of the leading features of the constitution of government of the United States. It is happily calculated to preserve the civil liberty of the inhabitants, and to protect their persons and property. A definite constitution upon the representative system, reduced to writing, and rendered the bond of union among all members of the civil association, is a righteous measure, which should be adopted by every nation under heaven. Such a constitution must, however be founded upon the principles of morality, and must in every article be moral before it can be recognized by the conscientious Christian as an ordinance of God.”

The Reformed Presbyterian and Covenanter: Vol. 2. P. 108. (1864).
