DANG - Does Anyone Need Government

For Salavation

Modern governments are full salvation providers.

Roman emperors took the title saviour, but for them it was just a title. They looked after their loyal elite, but treated the ordinary people as slaves.

The modern government does not take the title saviour, but it has taken over the role by promising to solve every problem that arises. Modern state salvation includes education, healthcare, roads, poverty, crime and defence. In each of these spheres of life, the state provides only very average salvation and not surprisingly, it sometimes treats people as slaves.

Jesus claimed the title saviour by dying on the cross and rising from the dead. He proved that he was saviour by healing the sick, casting out demons and raising the dead. Unfortunately his people do not understand the scope and substance of this salvation. God’s salvation is better than anything than the state can provide.

In the next few posts, I will describe some of the activities that people want Governments do, that are not needed. The full series can be found at Dang.
