A Comparison of the Biblical and Libertarian Philosophy of Government

What is the source of liberty?

Is liberty based on the principle of self ownership?

By what authority do we take the life of a murderer? a homosexual fornicator?

While Christians and Libertarians often agree on many things in the practice of government, we do so from a vastly different foundation because we have a markedly divergent view of authority.

See where we differ and why in this side by side comparison.
