Some hold it as a doctrine while others have simply absorbed the assumption that the Law of God was for another day and does not apply today. Some believe the Law of God is for the Christian only and that it does not apply to the unbeliever or to the social order. Many believe that [...]
The difference between the political opinions of Nabal and his wife are poles apart. God himself demonstrated which opinion was right when Nabal was struck dead by God.
Thy Kingdom Come
by Eugene Clingman
(To the tune of For All the Saints)
O Glorious Son You asked the Father true
Give Me the nations in justice to subdue
So will all peoples bow and worship You
Then said the Father to incarnate Son
Sit at my right hand as My will is done
Til every nation by My zeal is [...]
What is the primary need for the nations of the world and for our own nation? Is it righteous political leaders? I pray that we and each nation may have righteous leaders, and indeed we should seek such to rule us for, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked [...]
The Bible is rife with evidence of a good God who provides for His people and who opens His hand and satisfies “the desire of every living thing.” He does provide and desires to provide abundantly. Lack for mankind is not a problem with God, but a problem in man as I will discuss after the following Scripture passages.

Christ, in very un-pluralistic fashion commanded his people to disciple the nations (Matthew 28:18-20), teaching them to obey all that Christ taught them (which excludes all that other religions teach); this is also why judges and kings are commanded to “kiss the Son” (Psalm 2:10-12). Christ is Lord of all! This rule of Christ, to whom “all authority has been given” in heaven and on earth, comes through the “dominion” of the Church. Not a dominion of oppression and dominance, but a dominion of nurture and cultivation as she teaches and lives the Gospel of Christ and thus draws the nations (Isaiah 60) into the Kingdom of God. Jeremiah gives us a picture of this in the following verses.
