From what's absolute
And found in God's holy law,
America planted roots.
The line in the sand was drawn.
American constitutionalism was rooted in the absolutes of God’s law. True law is in accord with God’s law. William Blackstone, whose Commentaries of the Laws of England (1765) was a primary resource for those studying law in America until the twentieth century, said that “no human laws are of any validity, if contrary to the law of nature [which is] dictated by God himself…[or to] the law of revelation [which is] to be found only in the holy Scriptures.”
