What does the Bible really teach about government? I found two resources on the web tonight that seemed worthy to share. The first is Pastor Jim Fowler’s topical outline of the Bible’s teaching on government. The second is another outline on the Bible and government at a web site called Faith Facts.
This is not to suggest that we can simply commend biblical teaching to a diverse citizenship. Yet what we can do is make appeals to truth and the common good. For example, is it not clear that government is intended to do certain things but not others? For example, government is intended to restrain evil and commend good, but it is not intended to run automobile companies.
The UAW has been given General Motors and Chrysler. Let them make these firms profitable, or let them fail, but I am not interested in seeing any more of my tax dollars wasted.
