Common Law VS Biblical Common Law

Recently I have had the Utter displeasure to come across the concept being called Biblical Common Law. Having previously read on the subject of common law, a subject that bears great love in my heart, I was utterly sickened by this perversion and so here I will demonstrate how this is an utter perversion.

Common Law goes back to Feudal times when the lords couldn’t care less about the daily lives of its citizens (it goes back further but let’s just keep it simple). The people were left to their own devices and had to come up with a legal system of their own. Thus Common Law was born.


Common Law or Scientific law was based on the only concepts which everyone could agree on and these formed the two main laws from which all other laws are derived. These two laws are:

1)      Do all you have agreed to do (the basis for contractual law)

2)      Do not Encroach on others or their property

(wording by Richard J. Maybury)

Simple, enjoyable and reasonable. Then you have Biblical Common Law, Source here in a Slide Presentation

The Following are the Biblical Common Law Principals from Slide 5

1)      Don't Obsess about an object or person

2)      Don't Exalt anything you created above all else in your life

3)      Don't Make rash Promises or oaths you won't keep and don't wish anyone misfortune or harm

4)      Don't work 7 Days a week, your body and mind needs rest

5)      Be respectful to your parents and other people

6)      Don't intentionally harm or murder anyone

7)      Don't Break your promise to your spouse, family, members or associates, including marriage vows

8)      Don't take anything that is not yours

9)      Don't lie

10)   Don't obsess about what someone else owns or has a relationship with to the point you would violate any of the above rules to obtain it or destroy it. (Grammar correction made)

Lets break these down shall we applying the true principles of common law.

1)      Don't Obsess about an object or person

Invalid unless I agree not to do so, also an attempt at controlling a persons mind which is infringing upon that person.

2)      Don't Exalt anything you created above all else in your life

Another case of infringing upon others as it is a blatant attempt to control another person and tell them how to run their lives.

3)      Don't Make rash Promises or oaths you won't keep and don't wish anyone misfortune or harm

Part one is covered and is Law one of Common Law. Part 2 is an infringement by once again attempting to control someone’s mind.

4)      Don't work 7 Days a week, your body and mind needs rest

Unless previously agreed to this is a violation of Law one and Law two. One if I need to work seven days to make extra money to purchase something I want or need then I simply must do so. Forcing me to stop with an agreement by myself that I would never enter into  not to work seven days is infringing on my person and is thus illegal.

5)      Be respectful to your parents and other people

In the words of George Carlin “The truth is obedience and respect should not be automatic, they should be earned. They should be based on the parents performance.” In other words parents most earn them and forcing this onto anyone over 18 (children are not covered under common law as no one could agree on how to raise them) is an infringement on that person and telling someone else that their kids have to have respect is an infringement as well so this one is out as well.

6)      Don't intentionally harm or murder anyone

Do not encroach. The Second Law in common law.

7)      Don't Break your promise to your spouse, family, members or associates, including marriage vows

Common Law One Do all you have agreed to do.

8)      Don't take anything that is not yours

Again this is covered with encroaching.

9)      Don't lie

Unless one is under contract to not lie, like say in court or before a grand jury then telling them they can’t lie is encroachment onto their person and another attempt at control.

10)   Don't obsess about what someone else owns or has a relationship with to the point you would violate any of the above rules to obtain it or destroy it.

You can’t tell someone not to obsess that is control and thus encroachment.

While these are helpful guidelines for Christians, I and many other American’s simply are not Christian and in times of old the same was true. To force most of these onto people is Encroachment plain and simple and thus unconstitutional.
