Great vid but I believe that the Bible tells us that the governments are not evil - though they can be run by evil people.
The governments were established by God and are on his shoulders and those who work for the government are our ministers!
Hi tyrannosaurus! Thank you for your message!
Yes, the principle of authorities (Romans 13:1; cf. Genesis 6:5–6) is definitely from God. But the difference must be made between what God has instituted and what man did with it, as well as the corrupting influence of the invisible evil powers, and the prince of this world (as a system of things against God). Satan can give the kingdoms to whom he wants (Matthew 4:9; Revelation 13:2). This tells you a lot about who truly is behind the system. For example, politics and the way our authorities work are against God in their workings, not necessarily in the appearance of things.
The world system, in all its institutions, is rejecting Christ, rejecting God, rejecting the idea of sin, judgment, and salvation. Are there good things, even from a Bible perspective? Yes, but the system is against God. The goal is not to eliminate all that is good, but of God. Man can govern itself without God, man can know better than God, man can exalt itself to be like God. This is the lie of Satan (Genesis 3:1–7; Isaiah 14:12–14). Yet, man was made to live and have fellowship with God, be dependent of God for He cares for us, and give glory to God. The system is rigged against God and His truth.
But one day, God will establish His king (Psalm 2)! God will keep nothing of the present system of things we actually know. He will establish His perfect kingdom of justice, and Jesus Christ will be the sovereign.
YEah, no problem.
