We know from scripture that there are two spiritual kingdoms – the Kingdom of God, and the Kingdom of Satan. Both Kingdoms rely upon authority, but use it in very different ways. Since God is not a God of disorder but peace, His authority, which we find in self-governance, in the government of the family, the civil government and within his kingdom overall, are all given to man to bless him and order his reality. Satan, on the other hand, uses his authority to tyrannize and oppress.
As a Christian the principles are clear from a societal point of view. We believe in strong and consistent authority. We support strong personal responsibility. We support strong families. We support strong faith and spiritual affiliation. We support just laws, and we support strong and just law enforcement. In this teaching Jon takes a look in the Bible at Civil Government.
