Marriage License—in Bed with the State! http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Family/Marriage/license.htm
By David J. Stewart
In every state, your marriage license gives the government parental rights over your children!
Marriage is Still the Right Way in God’s Eyes
Please understand that I am NOT discouraging marriage with this article, I simply want you to be aware of what is happening in America today. And by the way, this article applies to women just as much as men, because when you get married the State becomes your children’s surrogate parents. Literally, the State has the legal right to tell you how to raise THEIR children. If there is a divorce, BIG BROTHER will come down on you and make all the decisions for your marriage and family.
If you understand this fact, then you can see why the State wants people to divorce, because it puts the government into the steering wheel of your marriage, home, assets, children, retirement and family! Most often, the State will demonize men as abusers if the wife is willing to go along, portraying women as victims, and making children the property of the State. Argue as some may, this is just an irrefutable fact in America today.
I am for marriage! Marriage is not just the old-fashioned way, it is the right way. I realize that marriage scares many people, but Hebrews 13:4 teaches that God will judge adulterers and whoremongers. Walt Disney teaches teenagers to live loose, be immoral, dress immodestly, fornicate, score, and live together without being married; but such wickedness brings the judgment of God. Hebrews 13:4 teaches that marriage is honorable in all, and that is what I teach as a preacher of righteousness.
It’s better to suffer within the will of God; than to prosper outside of God’s will. It’s better to suffer within the Scriptural bounds of marriage; than to shack-up outside of God’s will, where there is no commitment. Shacking-up nearly ALWAYS leads to a lifestyle of fornication, going from one sex partner to another. Even if you’re the one couple who remains true to each other in a shack-up relationship, it is not God’s will. Marriage is God’s will.
Sad to say, everything going on in America today with the feminist courts, unfair tax laws, State-controlled CPS, feminism, thug police, and other evils in the U.S. are discouraging young people from getting married anymore. Walt Disney and all of the major influences on America’s youth today teaches them to be rebellious, defy their parents, drink booze, fornicate, get pregnant, have an abortion, and do it again and again… party, party, party! Americans have become the most irresponsible people in the world. Fifty-one million abortions? Talk about an irresponsible society!
Feminism has turned women into monsters, to the point where they’re turning into lesbians instead of marrying a masculine man. The corrupters of our nation want young women to get pregnant through fornication, avoid marriage, forfeit a family to pursue a career, let childcare raise her brat, and only have one child. This is everything that Walt Disney, MTV and Holywood are teaching teens these days. Behind the euphoria of today’s modern music is a thug Police State waiting to take your child and slave you out in a heathen workplace for the rest of your life, living in government housing, depending upon the government for everything, and the government having total control over your life. Wake up!
I don’t condemn anyone for their sins, because only God has the right to judge (Romans 14:10-12; James 4:12; 5:9). I am the biggest sinner I know (and so are you if you’re right with God, James 2:10). The purpose of this article is to inform you that at some point in American history, the State government felt it was their business to become a part of everyone’s marriage. Men rush into marriage, but American women are infamous for being cruel, malicious and taking everything they can get in a divorce. Asian women are much more respectful because of their upbringing, and they generally make much better wives. They are taught to take care of their elderly, not stick them in a nursing home and forget about them like Americans do. If that offends you, then get right with God.
American woman stay away from me! That song is very popular worldwide, because American women are infamous for being evil. The fact that America is a major producer of pornography and sleaze in the world, and that 51,000,000 American women have killed their babies, and the whorish way American women take their clothes off in public, and the spoiled brat attitude of the American woman is cause for concern. Television is saturated with lewd sleaze… MTV, CMT, VH1, LIFE, FOX… it’s all of the Devil.
The Whole Court System in America is Evil and Rotten to the Core!
Having said that, I am not saying that all women are evil in America, not at all. What I am saying is that when a marriage has problems, there are plenty of evil feminist monsters who are a threat to any Christian wife. There are many serpents lurking, seeking their next victim, poisoning the minds of impressionable wives to divorce, divorce, divorce! The government sponsors all sorts of social programs intended to promote divorce, just as the government sponsors Planned Parenthood to promote abortion. Are you gullible? Every time you open a newspaper what do you see… divorce for a reasonable price!
You’re a fool if you believe that you can get a friendly divorce, because everything you own goes through the court system… everything!!! There’s no such thing as a friendly divorce when you examine the court documents. It’s all cut-throat, cold-heartedly laid out in black and white as a demonic agreement. God hates divorce, and so should you if you love God (Malachi 2:16; Jeremiah 3:20; Matthew 19:8; Hebrews 13:5; Matthew 18:22; 1st Corinthians 7:10-11; Matthew 7:3-5).
The courts divide everything and turn any divorce into a war. It is deliberate that judges, CPS, lawyers, police and everyone involved in any family matter make a major case out of anything and everything. They declare war between husband and wife… an all out nasty malicious battle in the courts. This is how the system bilks people out of their money, retirement, home, savings, assets, possessions, and everything you’ve ever worked for. Judges and lawyers are scavengers, preying upon the public, making a major production out of anything they can to rob their victims of tens-of-thousands of dollars. Judges are simply overpaid lawyers. The banks foreclose on people’s homes. Court cases are deliberately dragged on for years so they can make money for the courts, so they can ruin people’s families and lives, so they can play god with people. It’s evil as can be. It’s all deliberate. America’s court system is filled with thugs!
America incarcerates 25% of the world’s prison population. That is absolutely shocking and reveals just how corrupt America’s court system has become! We have 1-out-of-20 of the world’s population in the U.S., but we have 1-out-of-4 of the world’s prisoners. Our prisons are packed full of American citizens, because the prisonhouse system is a multi-billion dollar industry in the U.S. It is sickening. Americans are being locked away for 10-years for possessing $40 worth of illegal drugs, while Wall Street thieves rip off trillions of tax-payer dollars through Federal Reserve Banks and no one is arrested.
While Dr. Kent Hovind rots in prison for 10-years for not applying for a $50 state-license because of his religious convictions, Casey Anthony’s mother is acquitted of murdering her child and slapped on the wrist for lying to police repeatedly. Talk about a rigged jury! Scott Peterson didn’t receive the same treatment, they crucified him in California. Florida is a corrupt state, which is also where poor Terri Schiavo was murdered. Florida’s judges are evil… punishing the righteous, acquitting the wicked, and killing the innocent.
There is no justice anyone in America. While murderers go free, mothers receive life in prison for possession of $40 of cocaine. While people are arrested and dragged into court for growing tomatoes in their front yard, treasonous criminals have taken over the White House and the evil newsmedia protects them, demonizing citizens instead. Sean Hannity is a paid professional liar and a rich stooge for the global elite.
There is a New World Order AN AGENDA to put undue stress upon families in America, to cause as many divorces as possible, to take your home, to take your children… to STEAL, KILL AND DESTROY (John 10:10). Out of chaos the global elite are plotting to build a Godless Global Totalitarian Communist Police State!!! This will be the Beast System of the coming man of sin, a charismatic and influential world dictator, the Antichrist.
I understand that money is one of the major issues and fathers certainly ought to be required to support their children. However, I have heard nightmare after nightmare of what the U.S. courts are unfairly doing to men. I do not believe that a husband should be required to support his wife for the rest of her life if she decides to divorce. In most cases, women wait until their husband does something stupid, like Faron Young shooting his gun off in the kitchen while drinking booze. After 40 years of marriage, that one incident entitled his wife to divorce and lifetime alimony.
I have known people throughout my life who were shacking-up together, especially people who have come out of ugly divorces. I am not criticizing those people. I am simply saying that it is not God’s will. Two wrongs never make a right. If you feel that marriage is a dangerous proposition, then perhaps you should consider celibacy as did the Apostle Paul; because Hebrews 13:4 teaches that God will judge adulterers and whoremongers.
Marriage is honorable in all (Hebrews 13:4), but not for those who file for divorce (Matthew 5:28). It’s never right to quit and give up. Marriage is not a business that may or may not succeed, it is a lifetime commitment to remain faithful by your spouse’s side (until death do you part). The popular idea today that it’s acceptable to walk away and divorce a spouse that sins is nowhere taught in the Scriptures.
On the contrary, Jesus taught unlimited forgiveness in Matthew 18:22. Forgiveness is God’s way. God said in Jeremiah that it is treacherous for a wife to divorce her husband, and treacherous in Malachi 2:16 for a husband to put away his wife. God is never for divorce! Marriages end in divorce because of outside influences (marriage meddlers) who tamper in other people’s business. The greatest business in the world is to mind your own business. Those who in any way encourage, nurture and cause a divorce will give account to God for destroying that which is sacred and holy in God’s eyes. Matthew 19:6, “Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
A License for This, a License for That!
Biblically, Christians don’t need the government’s approval to get married. I am NOT endorsing shacking up. There are ministers and proper ways to get married without obtaining a State License. I am not against getting a marriage license with the State, but it is not mandatory Biblically. The same is true of 501c3 licensed churches. Legally the government says you are not recognized as a church unless you a licensed 501c3 organization. That is unbiblical and untrue. A New Testament Church is a group of believers who assemble in Jesus’ precious name. The church is not a business, never has been, and never will be.
Likewise, a marriage does not require a license to be valid in God’s eyes. In many nations, you don’t need to go through all the red tape to get married as you do in the U.S. Literally, you are entering into a legally polygamous relationship with the State as a third party in your marriage. If one of you die, the State will come after you financially to take everything you own if your spouse ever collected a penny in Social Security medical benefits.
There is no end to the ridiculous amount of licensing required by the government. God never intended for a man to be ticketed for going fishing without a license. That is just plain wrong. Not only do they ticket you, they confiscate all your fishing equipment. It is now a law in New York that all dog owners must first obtain a license. Jesus never intended for the Church to be a licensed business by the State! Where does this infringement of freedom come to an end? Will America’s parents soon be required to obtain a permit before having a baby? America is NOT “The Land of the Free” as so many citizens think (Ask this father).
A license does not record the marriage itself, only the permission granted for a marriage to take place. So why do we need permission from the State to get married? Since 1837, the proof of a marriage has been by a marriage certificate, issued at the ceremony; before then, it was by the recording of the marriage in a church register. Requiring a couple to obtain a marriage license is unnecessary. Marriage is a commitment between two people and God, so that no authorization from the state ought to be required. George Washington was married without a marriage license. So, how did we come to the time in America where marriage licenses became mandatory to get married?
Polygamy with the State Government
By obtaining a marriage license, you are entering into a business partnership with the state. I knew an elderly man who’s wife needed to go into a state nursing home for medical reasons. She was under nursing home care for several years. When she died, the state came after the husband’s home and everything he owned, including his car, seeking reimbursement. The sad fact is that the state PUNISHES married couples for being married. As a consequence, the man was unable to leave an inheritance to his children, because the state took everything. Lest you think that is fair, consider that when the states were awarded a half-trillion dollars in damages from the tobacco companies, not one penny was reimbursed to taxpayers.
A book could be written concerning the reasons why getting a marriage license is a risky thing to do. Again, I am not telling you not to get a marriage license; but you need to understand that you are also marrying the State government! The state wants to get its claws into your estate and assets. By obtaining a marriage license, you are voluntarily making the government a business partner in your marriage, and the State may seize your home that you worked a lifetime to pay for.
If you don’t believe me, then read it for yourself below. Here’s a disturbing quote from the Ohio Bar Association defining Ohio’s Marriage Laws…
“When you repeat your marriage vows, you enter into a legal contract. There are three parties to that legal contract: 1) you; 2) your spouse; and 3) the state of Ohio. The state is a party to the contract because under its laws, you have certain obligations and responsibilities to each other, to any children you may have, and to Ohio.”
That is scary my friend. So if you obtain a marriage license in the State of Ohio, then you are LEGALLY OBLIGATED to your wife, children, and THE STATE OF OHIO!!! Certainly, a good man has no problem providing for his wife and children; however, the law will crucify you without mercy with that “Marriage License” you obtained if your wife drags you into divorce court one day. Literally, your marriage license will become A WEAPON used against you. The State has no business in your marriage. You will be at the mercy of the State of Ohio. Every other state has similar laws on the books.
Consider Yourself Warned
I am not condoning “shacking up” without being married; BUT I am saying that you don’t want the State as a partner. You’re marrying your wife; not the State. The State of Ohio thinks differently. Every married person in Ohio who obtained a marriage license (i.e., permission from the State to get married) is in bed with the State. The State has no business being a business partner in anyone’s marriage.
I am NOT saying that I entirely agree with the following information, but it sure is worthy of our consideration. The following is a well-written pamphlet by Pastor Matt Trewhella…
5 Reasons Why Christians Should Not Obtain a State Marriage License
By Pastor Matt Trewhella
Every year thousands of Christians amble down to their local county courthouse and obtain a marriage license from the State in order to marry their future spouse. They do this unquestioningly. They do it because their pastor has told them to go get one, and besides, “everybody else gets one.” This pamphlet attempts to answer the question – why should we not get one?
1. The definition of a “license” demands that we not obtain one to marry. Black’s Law Dictionary defines “license” as, “The permission by competent authority to do an act which without such permission, would be illegal.” We need to ask ourselves- why should it be illegal to marry without the State’s permission? More importantly, why should we need the State’s permission to participate in something which God instituted (Gen. 2:18-24)? We should not need the State’s permission to marry nor should we grovel before state officials to seek it. What if you apply and the State says “no”? You must understand that the authority to license implies the power to prohibit. A license by definition “confers a right” to do something. The State cannot grant the right to marry. It is a God-given right.
2. When you marry with a marriage license, you grant the State jurisdiction over your marriage. When you marry with a marriage license, your marriage is a creature of the State. It is a corporation of the State! Therefore, they have jurisdiction over your marriage including the fruit of your marriage. What is the fruit of your marriage? Your children and every piece of property you own. There is plenty of case law in American jurisprudence which declares this to be true.
In 1993, parents were upset here in Wisconsin because a test was being administered to their children in the government schools which was very invasive of the family’s privacy. When parents complained, they were shocked by the school bureaucrats who informed them that their children were required to take the test by law and that they would have to take the test because they (the government school) had jurisdiction over their children. When parents asked the bureaucrats what gave them jurisdiction, the bureaucrats answered, “Your marriage license and their birth certificates.” Judicially, and in increasing fashion, practically, your state marriage license has far-reaching implications.
3. When you marry with a marriage license, you place yourself under a body of law which is immoral. By obtaining a marriage license, you place yourself under the jurisdiction of Family Court which is governed by unbiblical and immoral laws. Under these laws, you can divorce for any reason. Often, the courts side with the spouse who is in rebellion to God, and castigates the spouse who remains faithful by ordering him or her not to speak about the Bible or other matters of faith when present with the children.
As a minister, I cannot in good conscience perform a marriage which would place people under this immoral body of laws. I also cannot marry someone with a marriage license because to do so I have to act as an agent of the State! I would have to sign the marriage license, and I would have to mail it into the State. Given the State’s demand to usurp the place of God and family regarding marriage, and given it’s unbiblical, immoral laws to govern marriage, it would be an act of treason for me to do so.
4. The marriage license invades and removes God-given parental authority. When you read the Bible, you see that God intended for children to have their father’s blessing regarding whom they married. Daughters were to be given in marriage by their fathers (Deuteronomy 22:16; Exodus 22:17; 1st Corinthians 7:38). We have a vestige of this in our culture today in that the father takes his daughter to the front of the altar and the minister asks, “Who gives this woman to be married to this man?”
Historically, there was no requirement to obtain a marriage license in colonial America. When you read the laws of the colonies and then the states, you see only two requirements for marriage. First, you had to obtain your parents permission to marry, and second, you had to post public notice of the marriage 5-15 days before the ceremony.
Notice you had to obtain your parents permission. Back then you saw godly government displayed in that the State recognized the parent’s authority by demanding that the parent’s permission be obtained. Today, the all-encompassing ungodly State demands that their permission be obtained to marry.
By issuing marriage licenses, the State is saying, “You don’t need your parent’s permission, you need our permission.” If parents are opposed to their child’s marrying a certain person and refuse to give their permission, the child can do an end run around the parent’s authority by obtaining the State’s permission, and marry anyway. This is an invasion and removal of God-given parental authority by the State.
5. When you marry with a marriage license, you are like a polygamist. From the State’s point of view, when you marry with a marriage license, you are not just marrying your spouse, but you are also marrying the State.
The most blatant declaration of this fact that I have ever found is a brochure entitled “With This Ring I Thee Wed.” It is found in county courthouses across Ohio where people go to obtain their marriage licenses. It is published by the Ohio State Bar Association. The opening paragraph under the subtitle “Marriage Vows” states, “Actually, when you repeat your marriage vows you enter into a legal contract. There are three parties to that contract. 1.You; 2. Your husband or wife, as the case may be; and 3. the State of Ohio.”
See, the State and the lawyers know that when you marry with a marriage license, you are not just marrying your spouse, you are marrying the State! You are like a polygamist! You are not just making a vow to your spouse, but you are making a vow to the State and your spouse. You are also giving undue jurisdiction to the State.
When Does the State Have Jurisdiction Over a Marriage?
God intended the State to have jurisdiction over a marriage for two reasons – 1). in the case of divorce, and 2). when crimes are committed i.e., adultery, bigamy, etc. Unfortunately, the State now allows divorce for any reason, and it does not prosecute for adultery.
In either case, divorce or crime, a marriage license is not necessary for the courts to determine whether a marriage existed or not. What is needed are witnesses. This is why you have a best man and a maid of honor. They should sign the marriage certificate in your family Bible, and the wedding day guest book should be kept.
Marriage was instituted by God; therefore it is a God-given right. According to Scripture, it is to be governed by the family, and the State only has jurisdiction in the cases of divorce or crime.
History of Marriage Licenses in America
George Washington was married without a marriage license. So, how did we come to this place in America where marriage licenses are issued?
Historically, all the states in America had laws outlawing the marriage of blacks and whites. In the mid-1800’s, certain states began allowing interracial marriages or miscegenation as long as those marrying received a license from the state. In other words they had to receive permission to do an act which without such permission would have been illegal.
Blacks Law Dictionary points to this historical fact when it defines “marriage license” as, “A license or permission granted by public authority to persons who intend to intermarry.” “Intermarry” is defined in Black’s Law Dictionary as, “Miscegenation; mixed or interracial marriages.”
Give the State an inch and they will take a 100 miles (or as one elderly woman once said to me “10,000 miles.”) Not long after these licenses were issued, some states began requiring all people who marry to obtain a marriage license. In 1923, the Federal Government established the Uniform Marriage and Marriage License Act (they later established the Uniform Marriage and Divorce Act). By 1929, every state in the Union had adopted marriage license laws.
What Should We Do?
Christian couples should not be marrying with State marriage licenses, nor should ministers be marrying people with State marriage licenses. Some have said to me, “If someone is married without a marriage license, then they aren’t really married.” Given the fact that states may soon legalize same-sex marriages, we need to ask ourselves, “If a man and a man marry with a State marriage license, and a man and woman marry without a State marriage license – who’s really married? Is it the two men with a marriage license, or the man and woman without a marriage license? In reality, this contention that people are not really married unless they obtain a marriage license simply reveals how Statist we are in our thinking. We need to think Biblically. (As for homosexuals marrying, outlaw sodomy as God’s law demands, and there will be no threat of sodomites marrying.)
You should not have to obtain a license from the State to marry someone anymore than you should have to obtain a license from the State to be a parent, which some in academic and legislative circles are currently pushing to be made law.
When I marry a couple, I always buy them a Family Bible which contains birth and death records, and a marriage certificate. We record the marriage in the Family Bible. What’s recorded in a Family Bible will stand up as legal evidence in any court of law in America. Early Americans were married without a marriage license.They simply recorded their marriages in their Family Bibles. So should we.
(Pastor Trewhella has been marrying couples without marriage licenses for ten years. Many other pastors also refuse to marry couples with State marriage licenses.)
This pamphlet is not comprehensive in scope. Rather, the purpose of this pamphlet is to make you think and give you a starting point to do further study of your own. If you would like an audio sermon regarding this matter, just send a gift of at least five dollars in cash to: Mercy Seat Christian Church 10240 W. National Ave. PMB #129 Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53227.
Although I agree much with the preceding information, you must also realize that there are also legal ramifications of not obtaining a legal marriage license from the State, like not being able to claim your spouse on your medical insurance. That’s a big factor to consider. It must be an individual choice.
Likewise, no one can make you say no to vaccinating your children. There are legal ways to avoid the dangerous vaccines. Millions of children are coming down with brain-damaging autism from the mercury in the vaccines. Public schools insist on vaccinations or won’t allow your child into the school. But do those same jerks attend to the child who has been brain-damaged for life because of a vaccination gone wrong? No, they couldn’t care less. That’s our insane society today. No one cares about your family as much as you… no one! MILLIONS of adults in the U.S. now have autism because of vaccinations received as a child!
Again, consider this disturbing quote from the Ohio Bar Association defining Ohio’s Marriage Laws…
“When you repeat your marriage vows, you enter into a legal contract. There are three parties to that legal contract: 1) you; 2) your spouse; and 3) the state of Ohio. The state is a party to the contract because under its laws, you have certain obligations and responsibilities to each other, to any children you may have, and to Ohio.”
The painting to the right is of John the Baptist’s head, which Herod ordered removed. There are some things in life worse than death, and being dragged through divorce court by an angry and rebellious wife is one of them. I heard a lawyer say that he’ll never take another divorce case, because the hatred in divorce court is worse than at a murder trial.
Please read the following article because it is food for thought. Please understand that the author is NOT advocating avoiding marriage; rather, he is simply warning the reader about the dangers of getting a marriage license by the State.
Stay single, young man!

Marriage, as conceived by God, is a good and fruitful thing.
Marriage, as conceived by the state, is an evil man-trap designed to deprive men of their property and their children.
For as the Ohio State Bar Association helpfully explains, the marriage license is:
… a legal contract. There are three parties to that contract. 1.You; 2. Your husband or wife, as the case may be; and 3. the State of Ohio.
This contract grants the third party jurisdiction over all the property owned by the first two, as well as anything produced by the other parties, including children. And it is this marriage license which gives the state legal power to dictate who gets what in the case of a divorce.
The explosion of divorce in the latter half of the 20th century and the commonplace abuse of men in the family “courts” (which are actually fraudulent executive-branch entities that operate in total violation of the constitutional law’s separation of powers) is bad enough. But since feminists have discovered how the power of government can be used to forcibly transform civil society to their liking, they have been emboldened to make even more creative use of the state’s power over marriage.
In Spain, for example, a law is being passed to force men to do more housework. Since the vast majority of Spanish men – 81 percent – are traditionalists who believe that women with school-age children should stay at home and not work full-time jobs, Spanish feminists are waging war against them through the national legislature.
As the law’s sponsor, Margarita Uria, helpfully explains:
The idea of equality within marriage always stumbles over the problem of work in the house and caring for dependent people. This will be a good way of reminding people what their duties are. It is something feminists have been wanting for a long time.
No doubt they have. Because, according to Marian Salzman, described by the U.K. Observer as a “trend-spotter extraordinaire,” women are “rejecting equality in the workplace and prefer the idea of becoming full-time housewives – but not ones who actually do housework … women are happy to abandon the workplace, but not if it means spending all day at home cooking, cleaning and looking after children. Instead, they want to play the “role” of housewife with a little help from, for instance, a nanny, and someone who does the ironing.”
Her warning should sober even the most infatuated man. “Women think: ‘What’s mine is mine, and what’s his is mine.'”
Since the U.S. Supreme Court now sees fit to take international law into account when deciding what is and is not constitutional, it can only be a matter of time before a woman’s right to force her husband to do the ironing or breast-feed the baby is discovered in an emanation or a penumbra. After all, someone has to do the housework when mommy is busy sitting on a corporate board, which she’ll be doing as soon as the Norwegian concept of sex-based affirmative action for company directors crosses the Atlantic.
Young men are already responding to the increasingly odious burden of marriage by delaying it or avoiding it altogether, but for the most part, they are doing so without conscious design. It is time for men to become aware that as the more economically productive class, they are the natural prey of the government and its family-control machinery. The courts have already demonstrated that a man – any man – will do for their purposes when childsupport is required, even if that man can be proved to have no relationship to the child.
For non-Christian men, the answer is easy: Avoid marriage at all costs. Marriage only weakens your legal and emotional positions vis-a-vis a woman, and since American women will freely provide companionship, sex and children upon request, to marry is to give up a great deal for what is literally less than nothing.
A Christian man, on other hand, cannot freely engage in non-committal sexual relationships, and so must marry. He can improve his odds, however, by marrying a Christian woman who is not on the career track. This will significantly increase the chances that he will not find himself at the legal mercy of a sociopath obsessed with momentary happiness ?ber alles, but blessed by a traditional wife committed to building a family and a life together with him instead.
But is it possible for a Christian couple to avoid the state’s machinery of control and still marry before God? Yes, according to pastor Matt Trewhella. “What’s recorded in a family Bible will stand up as legal evidence in any court of law in America. Early Americans were married without a marriage license. They simply recorded their marriages in their family Bibles. So should we.”
Again, I am not condoning “shacking up” or living in fornication; but something is VERY WRONG with the State becoming a partner in one’s marriage. This is immoral and Communist! Obtaining a marriage license voluntarily places your children under State control, and makes you (the father) legally obligated TO THE STATE. This is certainly not freedom. The purpose of my article is not to encourage anyone to shack-up, and you’re a liar if you say otherwise. I just think that you need to know exactly what you are getting into before you say “I do.” Be careful who you marry and know that any assets you accumulate throughout your career are greatly at risk. The State will take everything you have and leave you dead broke.
Again, this issue is the same as vaccinating your children. It’s the law, but it’s very dangerous! This is why MILLIONS of American children are coming down with autism (from the mercury in the vaccinations). There are legal ways around vaccinating if you pursue them.
Please understand that the issue is not just marriage licensing, but all government licensing. As I type, there are preachers in America rotting in prison for not accepting a state-license for their ministry. The entire 501c3 licensing process of churches is unconstitutional and a violation of separation of church and state laws. Literally, the government has paid off churches to get into bed with them. The almighty state says, join us or become our enemy. This is why churches today are apostate, eerily quiet about the blatant crimes and treason being committed by Washington D.C. officials in bed with Wall Street and the Pentagon (commonly referred to as the Military Industrial Complex). State-licensing is the enemy of freedom and liberty.
Think about this… You can get married on an airplane, under water, on a mountain, in a park, in a church, in your home, on a train, in a tree, while skiing, in a boat, anywhere imaginable; BUT you can only get a divorce IN A COURT OF LAW.
Will your marriage license one day be used against you as a weapon?
The problem is Communist government-funded liberal social programs that pay women’s shelters to indoctrinate women in struggling marriages to file for divorce. Women are promised welfare benefits, but only if they file for divorce. As soon as the divorce is finalized and the family is ruined, such women are abandoned by the system (just as the serpent abandoned Eve after ruining her life and family).
The government also provides free lawyers to such women through the use of law school loan programs to training lawyers, which afterwards require pro-bono free legal services from attorneys to pay back the loans. This is how the government pays for free legal representation for women who allege “domestic abuse.” The entire court system is controlled from The Tower of Power in New York, controlling the entire legal system with fascist Nazi-style legal maneuvering, legal loopholes, ways around the law, thuggery and wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12).
Worst of all is the apostate theology in our churches teaching women it’s ok to divorce a bad husband. I have news for you, there are no good wives. The Bible says all men and women are bad (Ecclesiastes 7:20 and Romans 3:23). America leads the way in selfish living. If things aren’t going your way, then quit and move on elsewhere. That’s why E-Harmony and dozens of other heathen dating companies are getting rich, advertising millions of frustrated and rebellious women with 2 or 3 children who divorced their less than perfect husbands, and are now looking for Mr. Right. They’re just headed for another divorce, and another, and another. This is America today.
I’ll tell you, the TV is your worst enemy. Women sit around watching heathen television, reading heathen newspapers and heathen magazines, listening to heathen radio, gossiping on the phone with heathen friends, attending corrupt churches, and their life is as heathen as can be. By “heathen” I mean sinful, worldly, carnal and lacking any desire to obey the Bible and please God with your life. The world is 99% heathen and always has been (1st John 5:19). Sad to say, obedient wives are a rare novelty these days. There is no law in America requiring wives to obey their husbands. Rebellion is commonplace in our homes, churches, society and even our Supreme Court against God. The Bible equates rebellion with the sin of witchcraft (1st Samuel 15:23).
