If a donor has made an imperfect gift, i.e. lacking the formalities required at common law, equity will not assist the intended donee.
"The common law derives from the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people, framed by mutual confidence, and sanctioned by the light of reason." ~ US Dept of Justice
this is the why the paperwork?
... For the unification of Common Law with Equity and the why is the paperwork such a pain the ass?
is because the formalities required at common law must be observed before equity can assist and Man, in his infinite wisdom, does not trust another man, so the common law is as convoluted as man's own distrust.
The common law is man's law, not Natural Law and certainly NOT God's Law; common law is a DIVISION within the Law and there is to be no division with the body.
Thus, when all these so-called "christian-patriots" are out there promoting that we must go back to Common Law
, they are hypocrites and blasphemers for they REJECT the unification of ALL LAW for Reconciliation with God's Law; DEMANDING man's law to be the "voice of reason:" Satanism.
The Law has been fulfilled with the surrender to the will of divine Creator and Acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; in other words, one has an integral part to play within both the construction and operation of the universe and if one surrenders to the will of the divine Creator, one will find the light thru the darkness, illuminating the way allowing one to evolve into the Truth; who and what one was created to become, and that Truth shall set one free.
And since The Law has been fulfilled, there is nothing common or unclean which God Almighty had made clean and to speak of the Law as common, is to call something impure that God Almighty has made clean of which means one acts without faith, thus is acts in Sin.
We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims;
Resistance is futile.
