Government is not a necessary evil. God established government and has given it authority to rule. God also requires that government uphold justice, build platforms of peace and order, and set the stage for God’s people to have opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
A church is not a lobby group, but an embassy of heaven. It is political in the sense that we worship the King of Kings. It has been given authority by God to recognize the people of God, that is, who belongs to the church. A church is to be multiethnic. In all that it does, it must keep the focus on the gospel.
