Faith-Base Government – Oxymoron

God doesn’t care what type of government rules. God works through the individual, not the collective, associational, communal, or societal organization whether public or private. Jesus teaches that an oppressed individual may know God better and have a greater contentment than his persecutors.

No, faith-based government scares me. Jesus said to render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's. I would think government would certainly be within Caesar’s domain. And if they are not representing God, what are they representing? That's what scares me. The best example of a major mistake by a faith-based governmental decision was the votes that lead to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The faithful lead by their religious leaders chose a common criminal over the Son of God. It was not those of the low culture, but the upright and faithful doing as their religious leaders insturcted. Voting as they were told.

What goes around comes around. God protect us from the righteous crowd. Yea verily I say unto thee, go forth and do likewise.
