I’ve said before that I believe we are now living in a Post-Christian culture. That is to say, a culture in which Christian justifications for cultural norms and morality no longer are held as authoritative. In other words, “everyone [does] what [is] right in his own eyes.” Judges 21:25 NASB. So how do I expect to move from that to Theocracy? I don’t, but stay with me for a bit longer. In the end I will make what I believe is the most significant political statement of which I am capable.
First let me say, by way of explanation, that regardless of the probability of success of an undertaking some things MUST be undertaken. Second, I would argue that the specific form(s) of Theocracy I will advocate for are amongst the callings of every man and woman who has called upon Jesus Christ for their salvation. Christ called himself a king, “Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king.” John 18:37 NASB. If we take Him at His word what can we be for other than Theocracy?
Yet, I’m not calling for rebellion against current government. Romans 13:1 tells us, “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (NIV). There is a lot that could be said about how this verse applies to governments like those of North Korea, Iran, Nazi Germany, and the like and perhaps I’ll write on those in the future but for now I’ll leave it here as is and springboard off of it into my next point. The most significant political statement I can make is also a highly significant spiritual statement,
I would have Theocracy where Christ is my King and I would have it
In My Heart,
In My Home,
In My Ministry,
and In My Church.
But I would have Republic In My Land!
The dirty secret is Our Lord will be on His throne no matter whether or not we acknowledge it.
