True Theocracy – 24 August 2006

In my Blog, “Is a Christian Nation Possible? – 21 August 2006,” I explained why I think the separation of Church and State is best. A true theocracy can only work when Jesus returns (see The Revelation to John) – and even then He will have to rule with a righteous rod of iron – which no human is qualified to do. To think that humans (no matter how “Christian” they may protest that they are) can establish a true theocracy (government by God) is wishful thinking and doomed to failure.

Revelation 19:15-16

15 And from His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may smite the nations; and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.

16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS."
~ New American Standard Bible

In this fallen world, all humans can be led astray – especially when they find themselves in powerful positions; then they can also lead many others astray. Surely, Christians, who are taught that Satan, the tempter, roams the earth searching for those he can devour (1 Peter 5:8), are forewarned. They have no excuse for falling for the slick political ploys of those who take these believers for granted as a large captive voting block.

1 Peter 5:8

8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
~ New American Standard Bible

Without a balance of power, a human government easily descends into a dictatorship. Christians are easy pickings for politicos who lead them down the “broad way” – and I don’t mean “Broadway, New York”! J

Matthew 7:13

13 "Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it.
~ New American Standard Bible

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
