In my country, the United Kingdom, we are a Democracy. That is, our political rulers are elected by the people. I spoke about this in my Weekly Thought and my Podcast.
God is a Moral Governor:
1. He is our creator.
2. We are obviously responsible to Him.
3. He is under a moral obligation to require us to be holy, as He is holy.
4. It would be wrong for Him to create moral beings, and then refuse or neglect to administer over them a moral government, since government is a necessity of their nature and relations.
The Holy Bible, which has been proved a revelation from God, contains a most simple and yet comprehensive system of moral government.
If we are not sure of the above, and much more that I have left out, we are sure of nothing.
If the law of our nation states that it is all right to end life, to lie or to deceive, to commit adultery, etc; in other words, has its foundation in selfishness. Then where does that leave the Christian?
A common idea seems to be, that a kind of obedience is rendered to God by Christians which, on Jesus’ account, is accepted by God. Nevertheless, which comes short of full or entire obedience at any moment. That the gospel has somehow brought men, that is, Christians, into such a relationship, that God really accepts from them an imperfect obedience. Something far below what His law requires. That Christians are accepted and justified while they render at best but a partial obedience, and while they sin more or less at every moment.
This is wrong!
Is it possible for a moral agent partly to obey, and partly to disobey the moral law at the same time? No!
Can a person set out with the aim of doing good to God while at the same time set out with the aim of doing bad to Him? No!
Can God, in any sense, justify one who does not yield a present and full obedience to the moral law? No!
God, and therefore Jesus, requires, both in his law and his gospel, that we should choose the same end, and do whatever they do for its promotion; that is, this should be the ultimate reason for all they do. There is clearly an obligation on us.
Also study my webpage on Moral Law, it will open your eyes to what is wrong in this world and in parts of Christianity.
Even the Lord Jesus taught that obedience to God his Father was more necessary for entering heaven than being able to do things in Jesus Name. And his Father demands that you obey his Son in order to receive his love and companionship.
John 14:23. Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.”
Disciples of Jesus, those who are born again of the Spirit of God, are living proof that the above words described in verse 23 are true. That is why they are hated so much by the Christians who are not born again of the Spirit of God, but are as described in verse 24.
The False Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ
Matthew 7:21 ‘Not everyone who says to me, “Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?” 23 Then I will tell them plainly, “I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!”
