Wednesday Devotional For September 28th, 2022

Right now there is a lot of talk about political ideology, some support capitalism which favors businesses while others feel that socialism, which puts more emphasis on the citizens is a better form of government.  Each has it’s own pros and cons of how to run a civlization, but Solomon back in 700 BC, saw through all that, thanks to his divine revelation from God.  

Ecc 5:8  Don’t be surprised if you see a poor person being oppressed by the powerful and if justice is being miscarried throughout the land. For every official is under orders from higher up, and matters of justice get lost in red tape and bureaucracy.

Regardless of the government style, monarchy, free market, marxist….all governments that are run by man, will be reflective of man’s original sin.  None of these governments or rulers are perfect, they are all just as flawed as the one’s that came before them.  Monarchies lent themselves to corruption back in France that precipitated the French Revolution.  Capitalism has it’s own issues that we still see today, big corporations like the airlines collude with one another to screw over their customers and marxism is a great idea in theory, but the implantation of it has never worked out properly as we have seen with places like Cuba, Russia and Venezuela.  

There is no perfect government, because every ruler is flawed.  On the other hand, the One perfect Kingdom is Christ’s Kingdom which is 100% just, with Christ, we know that matters are not swept under the rug and there is no favoritism when it comes to God.
