The laws of commerce are expressed in ten maxims, which are the eternal and unchanging principles of the law:
- A workman is worthy of his hire. Authorities: Exodus 20:15; Lev. 19:13; Matt. 10:10; Luke 10:7; II Tim. 2:6. Legal maxim: "It is against equity for freemen not to have the free disposal of their own property."
- All are equal under the law (God's Law-Moral and Natural Law). Authorities: Exodus 21:23-25; Lev. 24:17-21; Deut. 1:17, 19:21; Matt. 22:36-40; Luke 10:17; Col. 3:25. Legal maxims: "No one is above the law." and, "Commerce, by the law of nations, ought to be common, and not to be converted into a monopoly for the private gain of a few."
- In commerce, truth is sovereign. See Exodus 20:16; Psalms 117:2; John 8:32; II Cor. 13:8. Legal maxim: "To lie is to go against the mind." Oriental proverb: "Of all that is good, sublimity is supreme."
- Truth is expressed in the form of an Affidavit. See Lev. 5:4-5; Lev. 6:3-5; Lev. 19:11-13; Num. 30:2; Matt. 5:33; James 5:12. Legal maxim: none.
- A matter must be expressed to be resolved. See Heb. 4:16; Phil. 4:5; Eph. 6:19-21. Legal maxim: "He who fails to assert his rights has none."
- An unrebutted affidavit stands as truth in commerce. See 1 Pet. 1:25; Heb. 6:13- 15. Legal maxim: "He who does not deny, admits."
- An unrebutted affidavit becomes a judgment in commerce. See Heb. 6:16-17. Any proceeding in court, tribunal, or arbitration forum consists of a contest, or "duel," of commercial affidavits wherein the points remaining unrebutted in the end stand as the truth and the matters to which the judgment of the law is applied.
- He who leaves the field of battle first (does not respond to Affidavit) loses by default. See Book of Job; Matt 10:22. Legal maxim: "He who does not repel a wrong when he can, occasions it."
- Sacrifice is the measure of credibility. One who is not damaged, put at risk, or willing to swear an oath on his commercial liability for the truth of his statements and legitimacy of his actions has no basis to assert claims or charges and forfeits all credibility and right to claim authority. See Acts 7, life/death of Stephen. Legal maxim: "He who bears the burden ought also to derive the benefit."
- A lien or claim, under commercial law, can only be satisfied by one of the following actions. See Gen. 2-3; Matt 4; Revelation. Legal maxim: "If the plaintiff does not prove his case, the defendant is absolved." 10.1. A rebuttal Affidavit of Truth, supported by evidence, point-by-point. 10.2. Payment.10.3. Agreement.10.4. Resolution by a jury according to the rules of common law. Because truth is sovereign in commerce and everyone is responsible for pro- pagating the truth in all speaking, writing, and actions, all commercial processes function via affidavit certified and sworn on each affiant's commercial liability as "true, correct, and complete," attesting under oath regarding the validity, relevance, and veracity of all matters stated, and likewise demanded. Resolving disputes (law) requires a universally accepted means for someone to assert his subjective truth in a manner that all understand is intended to be uttered without equivocation, concealment, deception, or insincerity. An affidavit, especially an affidavit "sworn true, correct, and complete," has evolved over time to be the foundation upon which all statutory law is written and the accepted process by which someone expresses his truth in the most solemn, absolute, and ceremonial means possible, past which nothing else exists. An affidavit, as a solemn and sworn statement of truth and fact, automatically renders the affiant the subject of charges of perjury if any portion of his affidavit is proved to be false.
