Statement of Faith
There is only One God who is indivisible in both his person and his deity. He is trancendant, eternal, omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. He literally created the world in six days as stated in Genesis. He made man in his image. Man rebelled and his DNA was altered as a result so that death became possible and his descendants became tainted with the influence of his sin so that they too sinned. God, in order to redeem fallen man, became a man, died for our sins, was buried, defeated death, hell, and the grave, and rose on the third day. Those who believe on Jesus may become born again through repentance, baptism(in Jesus’ name), and the baptism of the Holy Ghost however salvation cannot be earned. Baptism isn’t a means of earning salvation but is a necessary exercise of saving faith by obedience to God’s word. Similarly a believer should live a holy life not to earn salvation but because he already has it. And finally the Bible is the infallible innerant word of God however this only applies to the original manuscripts. Of the current translations God preserved his word almost perfectly in the KJV but no translation is unacceptable except for the Watchtower’s fraudulent New World Translation. All other translations should be read with the KJV being used to settle disputes between translations.
On economics The Apostolic Libertarian believes in a strong market based currency backed by gold and silver and ending the fed. He also believes in a balanced budget amendment if it either includes a clause caping the income tax rate at 10% or is accompanied by a sperate amendment for that purpose. He also believes in a flat tax, elimination of taxes on corporations, business, and inheritance and a 1% sales tax to replace the FICA tax. Additionally he believes in massive budget cuts, free trade, and free markets.
In regard to immigration The Apostolic Libertarian believes that we can tackle our problems, solve them successfully, and still be compassionate in the process.
In regards to armed conflict The Apostolic Libertarian is a noninterventionist believing in trade and deplomacy rather than war. However he is a “defense hawk” who, while he believes in massive cuts to “war spending”, believes in maintaining a massive defense force.
With regards to the Constitution The Apostolic Libertarian is an Originalist in his interpretation and believes that current methods of interpretation have permitted the government to over reach way too far into the private lives of private citizens as well as permitting too much intervention in state affairs.
As regarding social issues The Apostolic Libertarian is socially tolerant believing in legal weed, legal prostitution, and marriage equality. However he is also pro-life regarding abortion as murder. He opposes social engineering which he sees as taking place in multiple forms in American society from public education to affirmative action.
