The Purpose of Government


What is Governments Purpose


We have established the fact that we are a nation with a Constitution based on natural (God given) law. According to God’s word the purpose of government is to protect those who do right from those who would cause harm to others. Rom. 13:4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer..

It would appear today that somehow the purpose of government has become skewed when we attempt to rationalize the type of law that has been legislated in the past and is currently under consideration. As we continue this journey it will become apparent that the death of 56 million babies, the destruction of 30% of marriages through no fault divorce laws that has given rise to at least half of all prison populations and the loss of our freedom of speech are consequences of bad laws passed by people of less than impeccable morals, elected because people of Godly moral character were convinced by the liar that they should not sully their character in such lowly pursuits as politics.


Pray for Christians to see their responsibility to not assist leadrs that oppose God, 2 Chron 19:1-2


The material used for this has been taken from our small group study , 40 Days Toward A More Godly Nation by Neil Mammen. I encourage you to get a copy of the book as I cannot adequately lead you with the fervor that the topic deserves. Mike Hanson
