    I have often heard Anarchism and Monarchism. What do you think?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Do you mean under what system of government does Christianity thrive?
    Or what system should a denomination use to govern its own membership?

    I don't think a better system of government has been devised by man than the original Republic of the United States. However, even it has failed, because you can't set up the Kingdom by the arm of flesh.

    There is only one governance to a follower of Jesus and that would be the governance (King-dom) of God. No Republics or democracies or polity in the next world.

    Wonder why they think Christianity should be run the way governments of man are in that case.

    Anarchism is rebellion.

    Monarchism currently is the largest part of the beast world politics , or in the top 5 anyway - with the religious part, the medical part, and the commercial part

    Do you need to be contentious in every thread? My question was simple.

    Some say anarchism is good since the only real authority is God, and a lot of monarchs have helped making Christianity popular.

    Christianity yes, but the Kingdom of God no. Too busy setting up their own.

    Both ideas are seriously wrong and opposed to the truth of history and Scripture.
    In anarchism, Yahweh and His Word are ignored, everyone does what they want to do.
    Historically , at least recently, where is a monarchy that is Godly ?
    Christianity (real Christianity) has almost never been popular. Patrick's country some time ago was one country which served God and kept His commands, obeying Him. They had the greatest peace during that time of serving God. Have not heard of many countries at all serving God .....

    Most seem to have been, at best, like indonesia recently - when a Christian was elected in the country that was and is 80% Islamic..... a miracle that a Christian was elected,
    and the enemy worked fiercely to overthrow the Christian, and got him removed in a couple years or so....

    As Jesus and all Ekklesia say, simply ! :)
    OUR kingdom is not of this world, and we are hated by this world, because Jesus is hated first.

    Elizabeth tries but of course is no God. A humble Queen if that is possible. She establishes an image of servitude to the commonwealth yet represents responsibility over rights while attempting loving neighbour as self. Less hypocritical a setting than religious leaders of religious empires. Too bad the government does not follow her lead but to them she is only a figurehead, like God is to some Christians.

    Still questioning...... where is any Godly, Righteous Government ,
    or even a righteous person in any government of any country ?

    What territory of man is not first subject to the peeing on the end of the driveway marking territory mindset of tribal behaviour based upon animal territorial claims? It's part of who we are. Jesus said to let them play their games and live alternate to mankind's opposing tribe mentality. God can't establish His Kingdom here yet but we as individuals can strive to be loyal to the ways of the spirit rather than the aggressive survivalist flesh. We all have it within us to be activated as our other nature.
