What does God say the role of government should play in our lives?
An acquaintance with libertarian views says that Jesus didn't judge while here on earth thus we shouldn't either and our sins be left to be judged by God when we die.
Though I see his point I would think God would have government play a more active part in our lives.
What does the Bible say about this?
The ancient Hebrews demanded a king like the other nations.
The government is mostly what we want or let happen.
The New Testament tells us how we should impact the world.
Did God judge evil rulers in the Bible?
All kingdoms rise or fall on His decree.
1 Kings 21:18-20 New King James Version (NKJV)
No, government cannot be Christians.
Only people can be Christians.
We are called to be salt and light.
God says honor the government.
The government is the people.
Christ changes people.
