saying about this book!
Constitution is a document intended as the
spiritual and legal foundation for starting and running
an enduring and happy and
family perpetually free of the encroachments of the
corrupt government and unethical family law profession.
It's main goal is to achieve "separation of family and
state" by showing people and families how to be self-governing
and entirely autonomous. The book is based entirely
on Christian principles found in the Bible which are
then supplemented with additional information only in
those areas that are important but where the bible is
silent, such as law and psychology. Even though
it is based on the Bible, we have written it to be appealing
to non-believers as well because it is as much a philosophy
book as it is a spiritual work. Two years of research
by the author went into writing the book. The
main focus of the book are Biblical models for RELATIONSHIPS
of all kinds, including:
- Human-God relationship.
- Family relationships.
- Husband-wife relationships.
- Parent-Child relationships.
- Employer-employee relationships.
- Relationship to governments and the world.
The end of the book gives
you instructions on how to get married without a state
marriage license by getting a common law marriage based
on a marriage covenant/contract. The advantage
of the marriage covenant is that state courts can't
alter or abolish or disregard or overrule the covenant/contract,
and the terms of your marriage aren't subject to the
whims of corrupt government officials passing some new
state legislation nor are they dependent on what state
or country you live in. Instead, the
the state courts have jurisdiction to enforce within
the relationship is exclusively and
the contract itself, which is fair and based entirely
on biblical Christian principles. This book is
inspired by the following scripture and painful experiences
of the author being unequally yoked to an unbelieving
and downright evil X-spouse:
"Unless the Lord [not the socialist government or
a marriage license it issues] builds the house [or the
They labor in vain who build it;"

The Family Constitution draws on works from several prominent
Christian authors, such as:

sermons, which are focused on spiritual development and strengthening
- John Macarthur's Grace to You radio ministry sermons,
which are focused on spiritual development.
- C.S. Lewis'
book, which is a book that is great for skeptics because in
a very orderly fashion, it uses logic and reason and philosophy
to bring atheists to the conclusion that there indeed is a god.
- The book by Bob Phillips about premarital counseling called
How Can I Be Sure?,
which is a Christian pre-marital counseling book written by
