Government & Righteous Leadership
Thus says the LORD: "Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ – Jeremiah 6:16
Government is a God-ordained institution. As long as it governs according to God’s Word for God’s glory, it is a minister, a deacon and servant of God. Yet, that does not mean a wicked man elected to government office is able to lead a people justly before, and pleasing to, God. An unregenerate man, trusting in Satanic deceptions and worshiping the false god (s) of his false religion, is incapable of leading a people justly down right paths before God, for he, being dead in sin, is at enmity towards God and His people; his spiritual foundations are 100% hostile towards God and Christianity.
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. – Hebrews 11:6
