Throughout history, one can trace the development of certain Biblical principles which serve to draw man and his government toward freedom and away from tyranny. The purpose of this thesis, then, is to explain these principles by providing Biblical support and historical evidence for them. Also, included in this work is a collection of historical documents which were included for their relevance to these principles.

Briefly stated, this work will reveal that freedom is achieved by acknowledging the sovereignty of God in aU areas of life, specifically in the realm of government, and the subsequent importance of patterning human relationships according to Biblical principles, which requires adherence to covenantal principles.

This work was done in consultation with the Oral Roberts University Educational Fellowship, and was designed to be a possible resource guide for teachers of History, Government, and Bible in Christian schools.
