When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice!

Dr. Kent Hovind November 2nd, 2010

The division in this country is not Democrat versus Republican or liberal versus conservative. The real division is given in Proverbs 29:2: “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bear rule, the people mourn.” It’s not about electing conservatives; we need godly people to be elected at all levels of government. Then, we need to hold them to the Constitution in the same way that God’s law dictated what Israel could do and how to run their county.

Congress should not “make laws.” The elected should not be called “lawmakers.” God is the lawgiver. We need godly people who “seek His face” and rule accordingly (see 2 Chr 7:14). Since the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Tm 6:12), we need to examine many things about our system and be willing to modify them to match God’s law (the common law) and the Constitution. Washington should be about 10% of its current size (or less) as soon as possible. Where in the Constitution does it grant the Government the power to be involved in welfare, education, drug-law enforcement, National Endowment for the Arts, National Public Radio, and scores of other things? Follow the money.

Let’s elect “righteous” people and rejoice in the abundance of peace that following God’s laws and wisdom bring! Go vote while we still have that freedom!
