The most convincing reason to me to reinstate the Common Law Grand Jury is, for example, that while I have been active in politics for many years and I have always been disappointed with the election results, I did not understood why the election results never made any sense.
Now, after becoming knowledgeable in Scripture my bewilderment can be answered by the example found in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge,” as well as that found in Acts 5:29, “We must obey God rather than men.” All of my political life I have been searching for a sense of equilibrium and not until now have I found that balance of understanding in the Common Law. It’s important to note that I believe that our constitutional republic form of government gave We, the People, a set of checks and balances on government. Logically, this “checks and balances” type of government on our three branches of government should give us the expected outcome, though keeping in mind that expected outcomes are not always the preferred results. But if the law is not obeyed and the agreement (adhesion contract) between government and We, the People, does not have full disclosure, only then can one understand why the result is not the expected outcome.
Furthermore, my bewilderment was compounded until my understanding that public schools, the government, and most churches are regulated institutions which are all corporations created by men who are either unethical or lacking truth. Because the frailty of men has diminished the checks and balances form of government that I believe in, there is a need for an alternative that the Almighty Lord God has provided in His Holy Scripture. The Common Law Grand Jury, though dormant for over half a century, provides a way to restore honor, mercy, and justice to the institution of government. “Thus those acting in the name of government must come before the common man to get permission to enforce a law.” For enlightenment on the Common Law Grand Jury go to www.NationalLibertyAlliance.org.
