This the second part of my pieces regarding Bob Enyart’s vision of a new America.  To read part one of this piece, please click here.

Bob Enyart has kept under wraps for many years his vision for a America being ruled by not only a Monarchy but also under a theonomy as well. While many Reconstruction Calvinists have promoted some forms of democracy, Enyart says no way. Enyart is all for an America that is ruled by a powerful King in all 50 states. Don’t worry I don’t think he will try to take the crown for himself if given a chance. He just feels that this is the closest thing to a true Christian government. Enyart for the record is not a Calvinist and does not quite fit the typical Christian Reconstructionist. His worldview is very unique when it comes to the Christian Worldview and his interpretation of the Bible.

In my previous piece I dealt with some of the key sections of Bob Enyart’s Biblical focused Constitution for America. In this piece I shall deal with Enyart’s proposed Criminal Code. It only has five sections and they are based on five of the Ten Commandments.

You shall not murder.

Judges will execute those convicted of murder (Gen. 9:6; Ex. 21:12-14; 20:13; Lev. 24:17, 21; Num. 35:16-21, 31; Deut. 19:11-13; 1Ki. 18:22, 39-40; 1 Tim. 1:8-10) including those euthanizing, starving, or aborting (Ex. 21:22-23) human beings from the moment of fertilization to natural death. Judges will flog those guilty of assault and impose restitution for lost income and medical expenses (Ex. 21:18-19), and for permanent injury also require an eye for an eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, life for life (Lev. 24:19-20). Judges will carry out all corporal and capital punishments swiftly and painfully, within twenty-four hours of conviction; and limit floggings to forty blows (Deut. 25:1-3; Lev. 24:19-20; 19:16-21; 1 Pet. 2:20). Judges will not convict for the use of force in defense of property and the innocent, in escalation to match the perceived threat up to lethal force; nor for purely accidental homicide (Deut. 19:4); will execute those guilty of negligent homicide (Ex. 21:28-30; Deut. 22:8); and flog those who could have avoided otherwise accidental homicide, and anyone committing revenge killing (Num. 35:26-27) of those guilty of capital crimes.

You shall not commit adultery.

Judges will execute those convicted of bestiality (Ex. 22:19; Lev. 20:15-16); those convicted of incest including with in-laws (Lev. 11-12, 14-15, 17, 19-21); of homosexual acts (Lev. 18:22, 29; 20:13); of child molestation; of kidnapping or rape (Ex. 21:15-16; Deut. 22:25-27; 24:7); and of adultery with a married woman (Lev. 20:10; Deut. 22:22; Ex. 20:14). Judges will flog those convicted of fornication; of public use of vulgar sexual and excretory language; of sexually suggestive dress or behavior; of intoxication; and of possession of pornography. Judges will flog more severely those convicted of transvestism; of public nudity; and of distributing pornography. And judges will flog more severely still those convicted of prostitution; of producing pornography for any use; and of sexual acts in public places.

You shall not steal.

Judges will flog and require restitution for convicted thieves, negligent recipients of stolen goods, and those who violate contracts (Deut. 25:1‑3). Judges will impose double restitution for recovered goods, the return of the goods plus one-hundred percent value (Ex. 22:4, 7-9; 20:15); quadruple for destroyed or sold goods; quintuple for intellectual, irreplaceable and sentimental goods (Ex. 22:1); seven times for insignificant goods (Prov. 6:30-31); and twenty percent for promptly and voluntarily surrendered goods (Lev. 6:1-7). The judge shall impose corporal punishment and life for life penalties for collateral damage from any crime, including bodily injury resulting from the destruction of property which warrants greater than even restitution. A person or his resources causing unforeseeable or unavoidable property damage including by natural disaster without negligence shall pay no restitution, or with negligence shall pay even restitution. Persons taking shared risk shall pay mutual restitution (Ex. 21:32-36; Lev. 24:18). Avoidable accident without negligence, including the malfunction of a maintained resource requires even restitution but with negligence, including by a neglected resource demands double restitution. Gross negligence requires quadruple restitution and intentional destruction demands quintuple restitution. Excepting those executed, judges will sentence those who cannot pay restitution, to indentured servitude for up to seven years with the victim receiving all service or earnings.

You shall not bear false witness.

Judges will fully punish those convicted of perjury, false confession, credible threat, conspiracy, abetting, or attempted crime, as though they had personally committed the crime (Deut. 19:16-21; 2 Sam. 1:15-16; Ex. 20:16). Judges will flog and impose restitution on those convicted of slander. Judges will flog those in contempt of court, and execute those guilty of treason and violators of court orders which protect victims (Deut. 17:12-13). A man is not innocent until proven guilty. He is guilty the moment he commits a crime, but presumed innocent (Deut. 22:22-27) in court until convicted. Convicting the innocent and acquitting the guilty are equally unjust (Pro. 17:15). A judge at his discretion, suspends the rights of liberty including the use of weapons, for the credibly accused, and mandatorily confines one facing a likely sentence of maiming or capital punishment, until the rendering of a verdict. Reasonable evidence from two or three witnesses, whether from eyewitnesses, physical, or strong circumstantial evidence, shall suffice for conviction; individual rights shall not supersede the judge’s God-given right and responsibility to impose punishment on the guilty. Judges shall not grant nor have special immunity from prosecution; shall not give more lenient punishment to minors; shall not give special recognition to lawyers or experts in the law; may observe and advise other judges during trial [B P]; shall not allow witnesses to swear or give an oath (James 5:12, Mat. 5:34-37; 2 Cor. 1:17); and shall question witnesses directly. Judges shall not accept no-contest pleas or bargains; shall punish criminals for all collateral damage; shall permit witnesses and victims to participate in punishment (Deut. 13:9; 17:7); and shall show no mercy to the guilty (Num. 35:31; Deut. 19:13, 21; Pro. 6:30-31).

You shall not covet.

In criminal trials as in civil proceedings, though not always necessary to identify in order to convict, motive is shown by evidence that the accused has coveted his neighbor’s wife or goods (Ex. 20:17).

America’s Criminal Code shall be enforced by the King as authorized in The Constitution of America.

My Thoughts:

Enyart really covered the basis here, and has packed the Seventh Commandment with not only unfaithfulness, but other sexual perversions as well as restrictions on the use of language. Unfaithfulness to your spouse will translate into immediate conviction and death for the one caught in the affair. Other sexual crimes that will sentence you to death include abnormal sexual relations aka sodomy. You see if you valid your life, you shall stay away from these things, and not “destroy yourself” and honor God and his Law. Get married, and have lots of children instead. If you don’t avoid sexual perversion then you deserve to die. Would you be put to death for telling dirty jokes? No, but you shall get lots of lashings (i.e. flogging). Others that would be getting whipped and the Cat o nine treatment include transgenders, those who distribute porn, not dressing modest or going nude in the general public. If your caught producing porn of any kind or having sex in public places will get even more floggings. Why a death penalty for sexual unfaithfulness and flogging for dirty jokes. I think it all comes down to honoring life…especially in the womb and legit health concerns as well.

When it comes to theft, you will not only have to playback the person you stole from, but you shall also get flogged as well. Those who can’t payback the person, basically become a slave to the person they stole from (or indentured servitude) for up to seven years.

When it comes to telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth…so Help You God indeed. If you are convicted of perjury, false confession, credible threat, conspiracy, abetting, or attempted crime, as though they had personally committed the crime…let the whipping and payback begin.

Oh, one nice thing about the death penalty in a Christian government envisioned by Bob Enyart. If the criminal killed a child for instance, the parents will have the right to partake in the execution.

Be very careful if your motives, cause if their is coveting in your heart and and crime happens at your neighbor’s house…they are going to point the finger at you cause you were not content in what you have and wanted what your neighbor had…and thus you shall be punished. It seems that people afraid of pain and execution will honor God’s Law and why Bob Enyart’s vision of a Christian criminal justice system will apparently work…or so he thinks and believes.

My overall analysis will be done in a future piece.
