Christonomy Part 10 Government- Live Like He Is The Risen King!
1)Christonomy is the only true foundation for Government in all forms. (Psalm 2; Matthew 28) 2)The risen Messiah is reigning now from Heaven. Jesus has bound the Devil and will completely crush the rebellion in His Kingdom at His second coming. (Isaiah 53; 55) 3)The Apostle to the Jews preached a resurrected Messiah who was ruling from Heaven (Acts 2:14-35). The Apostle to the Gentiles preached a resurrected Messiah who was ruling from Heaven (Acts 13:26-42). Live like Christ has risen.
"The deplorable conditions which I recently encountered when I was a visitor constrained me to prepare this brief and simple catechism or statement of Christian teaching. Good God, what wretchedness I beheld! The common people have no knowledge whatsoever of Christian teaching, and unfortunately many pastors are quite incompetent and unfitted for teaching. Although the people are supposed to be Christian, are baptized, and receive the holy sacrament, they live as if they were pigs and irrational beasts, and now that the Gospel has been restored they have mastered the fine art of abusing liberty. How will you bishops answer for it before Christ that you have so shamefully neglected the people and paid no attention at all to the duties of your office? May you escape punishment for this! Woe to you forever! - Martin Luther (preface to Luther's Shorter Catechism)
