(Before It's News)

I hate false assumptions. I am offended by people equating their system of government with the Kingdom of God. This has been common in Christian history.

  • After Constantine, Christians assumed that the Roman Empire could be a vehicle for the emergence of the Kingdom of God.
  • A thousand years later, German and Austrian rulers of the Holy Roman Empire believed they were bringing in the Kingdom of God.
  • The British people assumed that their parliamentary monarchy equalled the Kingdom of God.
  • Many American Christians were taught in their high school civics classes that their republican form of Government aligns with the Kingdom of God.

None of these assumptions are true. The Kingdom of God has a king, and his name is Jesus. Any other system of government is an inferior, alternative government. God may use them to accomplish his purposes, (as he used Egypt and Babylon), but he does not bless them.
