ONE OF OUR GREAT RESPONSIBILITIES AS CHRISTIANS TODAY is to follow the instructions of our God, especially as they relate to our obligation as members of His Church and as citizens in the great nations of His Kingdom. Too often today’s clergy say that the Christian has no responsibility, politically or socially, to the society of which he is a part. He is told that he is not to be involved in politics, and that he has only one responsibility: to believe what is in the Bible, accept the proposed salvation which the church offers, and get ready to go to heaven when he dies.

Well, this my friends is far from the teaching of the Scriptures. This is not the Gospel of the Kingdom that Jesus preached, nor is it the instruction that He gave His disciples. In a parable in Luke Chapter 19, He tells about a certain man who went away from the area of his administration and his inheritance, and left it in the hands of the Church; and he told his servants “Occupy till I come”. This is a parable of Christ in His Kingdom; it is the instruction which He has given to those who constitute His Kingdom.

There is a great error in the minds of many today concerning what constitutes God’s Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is made up exactly as the Kingdom must be–of men. It is made up of nations–a great nation and a company of nations.
