Just some facts on "marriage licenses":
A marriage license does not make or not make one "married". All it does
is make more revenue for the 'state'. It is not even required by law!
Most people are ignorant to this.
What makes a marriage is a commitment, a ceremony in front of God and
witnesses, and sacred vows creating a covenant. A ceremony is pretty
important. It states to the world that "you take this man/woman to be
your lawfully wedding wife/husband". The ceremony demonstrates to the
world your commitment to that person. This is why living together is not
truly a "common law marriage". Those that say it is do not understand
common law at all. (The state may mediate property disputes etc. if a
cohabitating couple slit up, however, this does not mean it was a
"common law marriage". There is a BIG difference between Common Law and
This is what a COMMON LAW MARRIAGE is. Shacking up, living together,
cohabitating, etc, is NOT common law. Many do not understand what common
law is. (Common law is based on Ecclesiastical Law, or Biblical Law, for
which our government, constitutions and Declaration of Independence
where based on.)
"Marriage" is NOT a "gift" for being a Citizen of the United States. The
"gift" you get for being a citizen of the United States is servitude
(read the 14th Amendment). Being an American is a blessing from God,
being a US federal citizen is not (read the Declaration, and go back to
the original findings of our govt.)
The "gift" of marriage is FROM God, and God only. Therefore, we do NOT
need the state's permission. A "License" gives you the right to do
something, that without it, you would be doing something illegal. Since
when was marriage, a God-ordained institution, illegal, if you did not
ask the permission of the state to do this? You have a "right" to get
married, without a license/state's permission. "all men are created
equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
THAT TO SECURE THESE RIGHTS, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the CONSENT of the governed..."
Decl. of Indep., paragraph 2. Again, we do NOT get our rights from government,
but from God.
Marriage licenses for all citizens is fairly new. It began in the 1800's
were citizens that wanted an interracial marriage, had to petition to
the government for permission. You see, back then, blacks were not considered human! They were viewed as animals (can you believe that?!)
However, marriages between 2 white people, or 2 black people, or 2 Chinese, did NOT need licenses. They still don't. However, the
government is happy to allow you, in your ignorance, to pay them
If you call up your local County Clerk and Recorder and ask them if a
marriage license is required, they will probably tell you "Yes". This is
out of ignorance. And remember, the state has a vested interest in
keeping their employees ignorant, and not advising them of true law.
Marriage "licenses" bring in a lot of revenue!! What do you do if you
ask them and they say "YES"? Just ask them "what law" requires this? I
guarantee you, THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COME UP WITH ONE! If they say
they don't know which one, just tell them you will give them a few days
to find out, and you will call back for their answer. After all, should
they be telling citizens there is a law for something if they don't even
know what that law is, or better yet, if one even exists?! NO!
It is not "being a good citizen" to pay for something that goes into
their greedy coffers, when it is not even required. That revenue is
better off in the pockets of those that earned that money in the first
place. When Jesus said "Render to Caesar what is Caesars", He was
referring to giving to the heathen what was theirs, not throwing away
what belongs to the righteous and giving it to the heathen. Big
