When Kingdoms Collide: God or Government?

There was a time when Christianity was part of the accepted mainstream culture of our nation. But our nation has allowed an ill wind to fill our sails and we have sailed into the uncharted waters of moral relativity and wickedness.

Sadly, I know some evangelical Christians who say “our kingdom is not of this world” so they embrace a hunker-down mentality and just wait for Jesus to come and rescue us from this mess. But they forget that Jesus said, “Occupy until I come.” (Luke 19:13). He meant we should be busy in the world until He returns. We shouldn’t retreat behind our stained glass windows and wait for the rapture. Jesus commanded us to be salt and light in a decaying and dark culture. Thankfully, we live in a political system that invites our participation. From the beginning, our government has been of the people, by the people and for the people.
