[COMMENT: Here is the oath taken (in this or some similar form) by the police, military, and civil officers of the United States, both federal, state, and (I think) local.
The two parenthetical insertions "(constitutional and lawful)" are, I suppose, addenda by some commentator to emphasize the quotes below. Just bearing an office does not make one's commands legitimate. Those commands must be consistent with the Constitution and with the Declaration of Independence upon which the Constitution is built. The Declaration supplies the worldview framework for the Constitution, which is a Biblical worldview.
Following the oath are some relevant quotes.
The primary enemies of the Constitution are (and probably always have been) domestic, those who seek to centralize government and thus destroy the very limitations which help to guarantee the freedom of the people, and those who seek to remove our government out from under the sovereign Hand of God, thus destroying the legitimacy of our government. (See Biblical Government)
Supporters and believers in
ordered freedom must recover our
Biblical worldview and Political Good News -- that not only our personal
salvation freedom comes from God, but equally, and based on our salvation
freedom, our public and political freedom comes from God. That is true
both historically and logically.
