Greetings and blessings to all of you.  It has been said, “Our nation is adrift. We are like a ship without a rudder, compass, or even a goal. We do not know where we are going because we have forgotten from where we have come.” God is the foundation of the world; but do you realize that whole generations of Americans have grown up without the foggiest idea of what God has to say about government…the institution that wants to control us? God had and have a lot to say about government.  God knows that mankind is evil and needs certain restraints because of the evil propensities of the human heart. “the heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?” Jer. 17:9 Because of our evil nature God allowed ‘government’.  But remember people(sinners) are voted in to be representative of the people(sinners).  But also remember power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. For example, … What did the government of Egypt do to the Hebrews? The tyrannical state of Egypt brought the ancient people of  God into hopeless bondage and sorrow.  What did the state of Assyria do to the Israelites? They led them into captivity torturing a lot of them to death. What about the state of Babylonia?  Well, they destroyed the southern kingdom of Judah, demolished the Temple of God and led them away into seventy years of captivity. Finally, recall who killed our Savior..the state of Rome. They not only crucified our Savior they decimated the early Christian Church with the blood of martyrs. George Washington said, “Government is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”  But God has always been in control. He allowed authority to rule over us (Romans 13). But for the Christian we hold on to Romans 8:28 “and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” God told Jeremiah “you live in the midst of deception; in their deceit they refuse to acknowledge me declares the Lord. Their tongue is a deadly arrow; it speaks with deceit. With his mouth each speaks cordially to his neighbor, but in his heart, he sets a trap for him.” The remedy to our nations moral and spiritual woes must begin at the house of God. Stop pointing fingers…vote for a governing body with Biblical values.
