Many Christians say they believe that God is sovereign over all spiritual matters. But at the same time they feel that He has surrendered all civil matters to the State. From their point of view, government is being totally directed by carnal men and ultimately Satan. Consequently, they be-lieve that it is not God’s will for believers to be involved in public government. This may be a religious view or tradi-tion, but it is not in agreement with the Word of God.
