"For God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man does not preceive it."
- Job 33:14 NKJV
The principal aim of the Word In Action Ministry (WIAM) in association with the Ecclesiastical Court of Justice and Law Offices and the Native American Law & Justice Center is to empower God's people towards the acquisition of knowledge, which would enable them to hone and develop the powers of understanding and acquiring wisdom.
The abundant allegorical teachings of the Holy Bible shed more light into the mysteries of human life and experiences than any other authority on theology or theosophy. Thus, the Holy Bible is our source of inspiration from which we draw our life's longing to lead fuller, more obedient and abundant lives. To learn from the experiences of every character in the Holy Bible, from Adam and Eve to John in Patmos, and to follow the true revealed Word of God, is our only goal and our truest hope.
IF YOU NEED FEDERAL INDIAN LAW ASSISTANCE
Lots of people come into my professional life seeking legal advice regarding tribal membership, tribal benefits, issues relating to taxation, banking and finance from an American Indian perspective. Usually, I show these people the law(s) as promulgated by the Congress, decisions of various state and federal courts including the U.S. Supreme Court, and other executive and administrative policy decisions affecting American Indian Tribes whose inherent tribal sovereignty has been a constant nightmare and an inconvenient truth to our politicians from the day the Vikings, Sebastian Cabot, Amerigo Vespucci, and other explorers set foot on our tribal lands.
I expect these people to read, examine and analyze these articles, findings, congressional debates, essays, reports, and decisions. I notice a sickening habit instead – they wait to hear negative reports about Indian tribes. They love to read this negativity. They wallow in this sordid smear campaigns. Their lives are happier when they read such stupid reports over the Internet where pseudnyms and nom de guerre are used by scared writers wishing undeserved anonymity. There ought to be a law to disembowel these psychos while they are being hanged!
Recently, I had a New York attorney call me regarding tax exemptions for tribal corporations. I had earlier showed him the appropriate and applicable law regarding this issue. This deranged and psychotic fool immediately “googled” all the scams being perpetrated by unscrupulous people using tribal status as an excuse, purpose and reason for scamming others into applying for tax exempt status. And he had the gall to tell me he was a tax attorney who never heard of section 17 of the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 !!! Such morons repeatedly walk into my professional life
This is a friendly reminder to all those potentials who wish to seek my help. WHEN IN DOUBT STAY THE HELL OUT AND QUIT BOTHERING ME. I promise you I will be outright rude when you call without checking out who we are and what we stand for, who I am, and what I stand for in the matrix of federal Indian law which is still evolving as a matter of first impression after 400 odd years of oppression, depression and suppression by those who chose to emigrate here from Europe in the early 1600s and sink lasting roots here without visas, travel documents or passports.

THE CHURCH IS A SEPARATE COEQUAL SOVEREIGN,
"...The letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life" - II Corinthians 3:6 KJV
John Adams, Second President of the United States, could not have put it more succinctly when he said that...
"You have rights antecedent to all earthly governments; rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws; rights derived from the Great Legislator of the Universe".
President Adams recognized the sanctity, supremacy and sovereignty of God, and God's dominion over all things - this is Natural Law.
One of the recurring messages in the Holy Bible is the dynamic that the people of God be nonconformists to the secular world - Deuteronomy 13:12-18; 18: 9-13; Romans 12:2; James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-17. There is ample rationale and reason behind this justification and mandate of God. Small wonder that secular indoctrination works wonders upon us when it competes with the Word of God.
We have become a nation of laws and a government of men. We have some great laws, and some terribly unjust laws that are more than just flaws in man's thinking. Disobeying an unjust law finds safe and solid sanctuary in the Word of God as evidenced in Exodus 1:15-21 when Puah and Sipporah disobeyed Pharaoh in order not to incur their Jehovah's wrath when Pharaoh orders the death of newborn male Hebrew children. How many Puahs and Sipporahs are out there waiting to disobey an unjust law? One of the laws of our land claims that...
"no one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it". 16 Am Jur 2d. §177, late 2d. §256.
Unjust secular laws are mentioned in Isaiah 10:1-2, Isaiah 31:1-3 further justifying Levites as law judges - Ezekiel 44:24; and the setting up of ecclesiastical courts - Deuteronomy 17:8-13; Ezra 7:24-26; Isaiah 9: 6-7; 1 Corinthians 6:1-8. Did you know that when an individual becomes a member of a church, he/she submits to its ecclesiastical jurisdiction and he/she has no legal right to invoke the supervisory power of a civil court? Read up 76 §85 (Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of Church Tribunals in General), Corpus Juris Secundum.(CJS)
"An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed"
... declared the United States Supreme Court in Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425 p. 442 (1886). We thank God for the United States Supreme Court in that it did, quite rarely, as in this case, separate the wheat from the chaff and get down to the truth of the matter in rendering a true verdict for real and measurable justice.
And, in America today, did you know that once an ecclesiastical tribunal (church court, that is) has made a decision, no civil court can disturb such decision?
"There is nothing more terrifying than ignorance in action" - Goethe
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" - Hosea 4:6.
We cannot afford to be ignorant of our basic rights. It is our duty to learn them, remember them, and to use them everyday of our lives. Our lives could depend on these basic rights especially when we know them and insist on enforcing them. One of the laws of the state of Washington, RCW 28A.230.170 states that the study of the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the state of Washington is compulsory in that it "shall be a condition prerequisite to graduation from public and private high schools of this state". Yet, how many our students, or adults for that matter, really know the federal and state Constitutions?
Did you know, for example, that once you have requested a church to solemnize your marriage, no civil court has the right to interfere even in matters relating to divorce, child custody, and property distribution because you have become a member of that church that got you married in the first instance. 76 §85 CJS, remember? But remember also the speed at which some "church folk" run into secular courts to obtain a divorce in a no-fault divorce state court!
The Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights has clearly underscored the fact that the secular government cannot make any law undermining the free exercise of religion. This must be viewed as an open confession and admission by the supreme law of the land - the federal Constitution - that the Church is not to be interfered with, or intruded upon, by the three organs of secular government - the executive, the legislature, or the judiciary. In other words, the supreme law of the land is saying to the Church - you are a coequal but separate sovereign. And I have made a law - a supreme law - identifying the fact that I cannot interrupt, intercede, or interfere with your affairs.
As if the supreme law of the land was insufficient, the Congress of the United States passed Public Law 97-280 in October 1982, which declared the Holy Bible as the Word of God. Soon thereafter, several pieces of legislation were promulgated, and some powerful United States Supreme Court decisions were handed down, to maintain the separate and coequal sovereign status of the Church.
Many churches in America today have unknowingly and unwittingly opted for the dreaded 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status of the Internal Revenue Code. This exemption, which churches apply for, has effectively removed the separate sovereign status of the Church, and instead has placed its neck, willingly, in a noose whose controls are usually in the hands of the secular government. When a church is seen to be endorsing a political candidate, or preaching and teaching against same-sex marriage, or condemning abortion, or gay and lesbian rights, the noose tightens often with the threat of losing the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Many churches have unnecessarily suffered at the hands of the government because they opted to knowingly make the dreadful mistake of applying for a tax-exempt status. The strange anomaly of it all is the fact that churches in America think there is no way out of this quagmire! And there are Christian attorneys and accountants and authors who nonchalantly endorse the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
BUT IS THERE ANOTHER WAY to get around the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status? Yes, there is. That is achieved by invoking the 508(c)(1)(A) status of the Internal Revenue Code whereby a church, their integrated auxiliaries, and conventions or associations of churches are mandatorily excepted from paying any taxes.
In other words, you invoke an exception instead of applying for an exemption. Surely, you can spot the difference between an exception and an exemption.
And the time has come for the Church in America to distance itself from the secular and be the coequal separate sovereign that it truly is by conducting its own internal affairs by and through its very own ecclesiastical government. After all, the Vatican is a prime example of the sovereignty of the Catholic Church in world affairs. The Pope is the Head of that ecclesiastical government. The Church of England enjoys the same powers of sovereignty in England with the Archbishop of Canterbury as the titular head of the ecclesiastical government of the Church of England.
So, why is this not happening in America today? Where does the church stand in America today? Is it subservient to the secular? Is it dependent upon the secular? Is the church holding its hat in hand when it comes to the secular "seeking permission" to do this or that in the name of God?
There is NO LAW in America that can stop the Church from exerting and exercising its true sovereignty by establishing its very own police force, banking industry, executive, legislative, and judicial branches because the supreme law of the land - the federal Constitution - says that Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion.
WILL THE CHURCH WAKE UP TO THIS CALL AND DO THAT WHICH IS RIGHT IN GOD'S ECONOMY? We cannot wait for the next generation to take cudgels on our behalf. We must do it now. We must take the Church forward through a quantum leap of faith, understanding, and courage. And we can do it, NOW. The only thing stopping us is our negative perceptions, our unfounded fears, and our hopelessness in depending upon the secular governments of the day in municipal, county, state, and federal realms.
"Thou shall not steal" is one of the Lord's Commandments, and it includes the stealing of ecclesiastical jurisdiction by a non-ecclesiastical station in life. Remember Moloch in the Old Testament (1 Kings 6:5,33; Jeremiah 32:35)... Moloch worship is state worship - the government which arrogates to itself all power and bow before no other. The state is an agency of law. GOD is the only true source of law. You must get yourself a copy of "The World Under God's Law" by T. Robert Ingram for real enlightenment on this subject.

Francis Bacon once said that...
"knowledge is like waters; some descend from the heavens, some spring from the earth. For all knowledge proceeds from a twofold source - either from divine inspiration or external sense".
The application of such acquired knowledge plays an equally powerful role in our lives.
WIAM has put together a Law School Program for those aspiring a legal profession built on the foundation of an understanding of Biblical law and a proficient working knowledge of our civil laws and legal system. This Law School Program is quite unlike almost every law school in the country. Please take some time to look over the Syllabus to understand how we are refreshingly different.
And please remember "that a complacent satisfaction with present knowledge is the chief bar to the pursuit of knowledge". - B H Liddell Hart
The Holy Bible, in the book of Proverbs, has much to say about wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. Yours is the world, yours is the victory if you care to acquire the mercurial tenet called knowledge.
John Locke, in his treatise, Some Thoughts Concerning Education, 94, 1693, put it beautifully when he said "The only Fence against the World is a thorough Knowledge of it".
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,
and all these things shall be added to you." - Jesus, Matthew 6:33 NKJV
