Proverbs 12:6, "The words of ungodly men are crafty; but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them."
are only two types of laws in existence; mandatory and voluntary. The
way you can tell if a law is mandatory or voluntary is very simple. If
it is voluntary, your signature is requested, a contract is required. If
it is mandatory, no signature or contract is required.
example, do you sign a piece of paper saying you will not kill anyone?
Or steal from anyone? No. These are mandatory laws, and don't require
your permission or signature to enforce them. Mandatory laws don't
require a contract. Mandatory laws don't require your signature. They
only require the presence of your body for enforceable action against
When you are asked to sign a piece of paper, it must always
be done voluntarily. To illustrate, let's use an example of a signed
confession. A signed confession must be done voluntary. If a policeman
took you in a back room, put a gun to your head, and threatened to kill
you if you didn't sign a piece of paper, that paper would not be signed
voluntarily by you.
Now, the same applies to every piece of
paper. If any man threatens you in any way to sign any piece of paper,
then it is not signed voluntarily by you. Additionally, if anyone says
to sign something, and threatens to take your car, or take your house,
or fine you, or put you in jail, if you don't sign it, then this paper
is not signed voluntarily. It is signed under threat, duress, and
Now, think of every time the government asked you to
sign a piece of paper. Does the government threaten you in any way? Do
they say, "If you don't sign this paper, then we will do (threat) to
For example, does the government say to you, "If you don't
put your signature to a drivers license, registration, and these
insurance papers, well then, we will have to do some terrible things to
you. When we pull you over, we will take away your liberty by arresting
you and throwing you in jail, steal your car by impounding it, and
extort your money by fining you. And if your kids are in the car with
you, we'll take them from you and put them in a foster home, and if your
pets are in the car with you, we'll bring them to the humane society
and have them terminated. And, oh yea, we'll cancel your library card!"
they do threaten you like this. Why does Caesar have to intimidate you
into signing papers? Because there is no law requiring you to sign
anything! Are deceit and threats compatible with the character of God?
If there was a law requiring you to do
something, no signature would be required! If there was a law stating
you were required to sign something, then this would mean they can use
force, "legally," to get you to sign anything they want. If they can use
force legally, then you are not signing a contract voluntarily. So,
that police man who took you in the back room and "held a gun to your
head" (threatened you), he would be doing his job legally by forcing you
to sign a piece of paper. There is no law which forces you to sign a
confession, but it makes it a lot easier to prosecute you if you do sign
something "voluntarily." There is no law requiring a signature from
anyone, but it makes it a lot easier for the government to convert you
into something that you are not.
When you sign a drivers license
(or, for that matter, any paper from the government), this signature is
not required by law. For they 'ask' you for your signature. If it was
the law, your signature would not be required. Only contracts and
permits require a signature. Governments only have the right to regulate
commerce, and commerce is regulated by contracts, licenses, and
permits. These are all voluntary. This is why the government must force
you to accept a mark identifying you as being engaged in commercial
For example, are you engaged in 'traffic'? The following definitions are from Bouvier’s Law Dictionary of 1914.
Traffic Regulation: "Prescribed rules of conduct to promote the orderly and safe flow of traffic". [What does traffic mean?]
"Commerce, trade, sale, or exchange of merchandise, bills, money, and
the like. The passing of goods or commodities…. The subjects of
transportation… See Commerce". [What does transportation mean?]
Transportation: "The movement of goods or persons from one place to another, by a carrier". [What is a carrier?]
"Individual or organization engaged in transporting passengers or goods
for hire". [To hire someone means to get paid for services.]
Commerce: "The exchange of goods…buying, selling…Intercourse by way of trade or traffic".
"A legally erected and maintained traffic signal requiring all traffic
to stop before entering into or crossing an intersection."
lights and stop signs are to regulate those engaged in commercial
activity. However, this does not mean you can freely run these signals
and signs without stopping first! For obvious reasons.
traffic is defined as trade in man's law. In the scripture, "traffick"
is also defined as trade! Trade means gain, profit, and riches.
1 Kings 10:15, "Beside that he had of the merchantmen, and of the traffick of the spice merchants."
Isaiah 23:8, "Who
hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose
merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honourable of the
Ezekiel 17:4, "He cropped off the top of his young twigs, and carried it into a land of traffick; he set it in a city of merchants."
Ezekiel 28:5, "By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:"
that traffic (trade) increases riches, which begets pride, which is
considered iniquity (Ezekiel 16:49). Here are a few cases which spell
out who are, and who are not, required to hold a drivers license and
"The Motor Vehicle Act (Stats. 1913, p.639) is not
unconstitutional…in that it requires professional chauffeurs, or
drivers of motor vehicles for hire, to pay an annual license tax, but
exempts all others operators of such vehicles from such tax and
regulation." In re Stork, (1914), 167 C. 294.

license is "a permit granted by an appropriate governmental body
generally for consideration to a person, firm, or a corporation to
pursue some occupation, or to carry on some business, which is subject
to regulation under the police power." Rosenblatt v. California Board of
Pharmacy, 69 Cal. App. 2d 69, 158 P.2d 199, 203.
God's Law "subject to regulation under the police power"? When God
commands you to go from place to place and do Godly works, are these
Godly works "subject to regulation under the police power"? Are the way
you do these Godly works "subject to regulation under the police power"?
No! Only those engaged in a business or occupation are subject to
Mercury: "Merchandise. A Roman deity…the god of
trading and thieving, the presider over roads." Shorter Oxford English
Dictionary, Revised and Edited by C.T. Onions, Volume I, page 1235.
traders and thieves are on an equal basis here. And this is why
commerce must be fully licensed, regulated, and taxed. Thieves deal in
speculation (i.e., inflation, deflation, market trends, etc.), to derive
benefit in the form of gain or profit to the detriment of the public.
To accept a drivers license means you are engaged in commercial
activity, which means you are a trader and a thief. You cannot serve God
and money (Matthew 6:24). One who takes a license must serve "another"
master, since the ruling law is now that of the Roman god, Mercury, who
is the presider over roads, traffic, traders, merchants, and thieves.
But our Creator says:
Exodus 20:3, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me."
you can be taken to jail for not worshipping the god of commerce,
Mercury, with your sacrifices (money offerings). When you are taken to
jail by the 'road patrol', these jails are engaged in commercial
activity. They make money for each prisoner they have in their jails.
The motive is profit. However, without a name, address, birth date,
birth place, social security number, signature, etc., the COUNTY is not
able to bill the STATE for the cost of keeping you in their facilities!
So, they will most likely release you to avoid losing 'profit'. This is
their great weakness. If they feel they can't steal anything from you,
they'll leave you alone.
2 Peter 2:3, "And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:"
State is trying to make merchandise of you by bringing you out of your
Godly venue and into a commercial venue, and their means of doing this
is with "feigned words" and by the deceptive definitions of the words
they use. Since, under the Law of War, it is legal to deceive the enemy,
we must expect that all government officers will use deceit to get what
they want, which is to compel their own (and the followers of Christ)
to serve Caesar, and answer to fictitious words which describe them as
those 'persons' who are engaged in commercial activity, who are
spiritually dead, and who have no souls.
Remember, those who seek "benefits" from the government are seeking the "favour of rulers," but scripture says:
Proverbs 29:26, “Many wait on the favour of rulers; but justice comes to a man from the Lord.”
