We continue the series, The Church and Politics. Last week we looked at the rebel federation of Satan in Axis of Evil. To read past episodes of The Church and Politics, please go to www.myilluminare.com/the -church-and-politics/
When it comes to politics, some Christians view the world as a bipolarity of “saints versus the world”. It’s a completely false paradigm with no pragmatic or strategic value. Such a mind-set betrays lack of understanding about the very nature of politics, portrays lack of sophistication and parades poor scholarship of scriptures. There’s the erroneous belief God allocates power based on human goodness. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Of the 22 kings who ruled the Kingdom of Israel between 1047 BC and 723 BC, only 4.5% were determined good; 86.4% were considered terrible. (9.1% were conflicted). Yet God gave all those people political power, and we shall see why.
