The government was established to uphold the law mentioned in the first five books of the Bible from Genesis to Deuteronomy. Due to a fallen sin nature, EVERYONE is born with, laisse-faire government and anarchy-style governments have failed.

However, this comes with a catch: EXCEPT WHEN GOVERNING OFFICIALS ASK YOU TO SIN.
Independence Day. Almost every country has one. It is an anniversary, a reminder of liberation from slavery under tyranny. The U.S. was liberated on July 4, 1776---243 years ago. Starting as just 13 colonies off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, America was founded on Christian principles with the intention to keep the government regulated to avoid too much control in any given area. This led to the establishment of the three branches of the capitalist government: judicial, executive, and legislative. However, instead of this year feeling like a celebration to mark the 243rd year of liberation from tyranny, this year of 2020 has felt as if America has lapsed back to before it was liberated.

This post will lightly cover 1 Kings 17 with a sermon from Community Bible Church.
