Glenn Peoples says that a Christian cannot be a libertarian. He says, “A Christian, by becoming a libertarian, compromises and gives up part of her Christianity.”
His argument is that libertariansm is based on the Principle of Self-Ownership or Individual Sovereignty
Each individual is the owner of his own life and has the right to live it as he sees fit, as long as he respects that same right in others.
and that this principle is incompatible with the commonly held Judaeo-Christian view that everything, including one’s own life, is owned by God.
The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it (NIV)
Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine (KJV)
It does not follow from this incompatibility that a Christian cannot be a libertarian, because libertarianism does not have to be based on the Principle of Self-Ownership. My view is that Christian libertarianism is based on the Principle of Self-Custodianship.
Each individual is the custodian of his own life and has the political right to live it as he sees fit, as long as he respects that same political right in others.
