To truly understand the essence of the concept of UNALIENABLE rights, and therefore to truly understand the essence of the American republic and our national claim to self-government in liberty, you have to first understand that you are entitled to absolutely NOTHING that God hasn't given you title to, and that even if God gives you title to something, it's only as a tenant.
As the Sovereign, eternal, absolute Owner of everything, He can repossess anything He's lent you - including your very life itself - whenever and however He pleases, while remaining perfectly righteous, holy, and just in doing so.
But, as long as you are His lawful tenant, living within His legitimate grant of tenancy, no other man can rightfully, legitimately, lawfully, strip you of God's generous gifts, which include your right to live, your right to live freely, and your right to own and possess private property -- all, of course, within the natural moral limits posed by the legitimate exercise of the rights of others.
In summary, legitimate human government exists to protect your legitimate God-given rights, and the legitimate rights of everyone else, while acting as a punisher of evil, and an adjudicator of conflicts that may arise between your exercise of rights and the exercise by others of their rights.
Human governments that violate God-given rights, or fail to resist evil, or that act unrighteously or unjustly, only delegitimize and destroy themselves. They don't, they can't, change the natural law as created and instituted by God.
This, my friends, is the first principle, the cornerstone principle, of our country. If this understanding is not soon fully restored in the hearts, minds, and political and governmental practices of America, this building cannot long stand. Our national destruction is inevitable. Our fall may come by degrees, or it may come all of a sudden. Only the omniscient, omnipotent Creator of us all knows that. But you can be sure, it WILL come. The laws of nature and nature's God will not be mocked nor ignored for long.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..."
