Believers

10 Apr

The title of this new series comes from the book Believers by Jeffery L. Sheler. We are not critiquing the book back taking some select quotes from its pages and discussing the issues raised by those quotes. At no time are we attacking Mr. Sheler.

‘Look,’ he (Dobson) was visibly irritated and shifted n his seat, ‘Some people say , oh you want to turn this into a theocracy. Well no one I know is calling for that. we know that doesn’t work…” Pg. 81

This view is based upon the observations of certain countries who put their religious ideologies ahead of political thought. But that observation is not valid, for those theocracies, currently and throughout history, have not followed God and implemented his ways correctly. They have all applied and implemented their own ideas, some based incorrectly on what the Bible says and others on their own false religious views.if God is followed and invited in to help govern the nation then the theocracy is the only correct form of government.

That style of governing brings exactly what people want- less crime, peace, justice, employment quality of life, education and so much more. Any other form of government usually excludes God and allows for evil to reign which means that they will fail to bring about what people want to see in their nation and government.

For a theocracy or any form of government to succeed, evil has to be excluded from the realms of power and God brought in. Only God brings true justice, true fairness, understanding, knowledge and so much more.  Those Christians who say that a theocracy will not work sell God short and do not try to use that form of government correctly. They also do not believe God. Israel succeeded when they followed God correctly. They failed when they stopped following him and his ways.Theocracies do work but people have to let God guide them and not their own thinking.
