“On file is a signed statement by Bradley Smith renouncing allegiance to the world and declaring citizenship in the Kingdom of Heaven.
“We are fellow citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven, the Government of God, which was handed to the Apostles by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper (Luke 22:29), We fulfill the Great Commission by traveling from place to place using old and modern conveyances. Our government is not of this world, and we expect to be held accountable to the laws from which we come. Our conduct is not an offense if it not an offense in the Kingdom of Heaven.”

If you follow the link above, it will take you to a post by Karl Bremer describing the Embassy of Heaven and its connection to both Pastor Bradlee and Scott Roeder, the abortion doctor killer. Roeder raised, as you may recall, “the God made me do it; therefore it’s not against the law” defense.
Here’s a bit more about the Embassy of Heaven from a Justice Department funded study:
“A religious/antigovernment group in Oregon headed by “Paul Revere,” the alias of a former computer analyst named Craig Douglas Fleshman. Fleshman started the Embassy of Heaven Church in 1987; it preaches a total separation from “earthly” government. Embassy members continue to make and sell the bogus license plates and other paraphernalia-18. Committed Embassy of Heaven adherents rarely ever show up for court dates and frequently go on hunger strikes when jailed.”
Karl has a lot more on the fetid pond in which Roeder and Smith both swim.
