The Origin of the People's Sovereignty

The Origin of the People's Sovereignty

In the Public Square: Tonight Host John Snyder discusses the Puritan Revolution and the history of the idea that law and not men hold power in constitutional government. With the swearing-in of Barack Obama and the concerns of many conservatives, there is whispering rebellion against the abuse of overbearing and non-constitutional governmental power. All true, but have we reached the point of rebellion? What is the remedy for the lawlessness of the state? How should we rather reform society and culture other than by force? Listen in as Host John outlines the accomplishments of the Puritans and shows that “culture war” is nothing new—that the transformation of society, men and states, comes not by legislation, laws, decrees, presidents, tax reform, or economic power—but by the reformation of the soul.
