The Best Government
| God has ordained
there be government to rule society lest there be chaos and mayhem.
Nations of the world are ruled by many different kinds of government. Some
think a democracy is the best. It has its good points when the people have
some sense of decency and morality,. But when that is dissipated it
becomes tyranny upon everybody. Many think America has already passed that
point and has so corrupted its democracy that it cannot govern properly
anymore. It goes back to the corrupt people that determine its character.
The Lord's church is a kingdom with a benevolent monarch, Jesus Christ, having all authority. That system cannot be improved. It ought be followed. Whatever kind of government men arrange, the government of God's people has been arranged by Deity and we should be content and grateful for it.
