De facto dictatorship

Fri, 09 May 2014 12:47:00 GMT

If a man cannot speak his mind or criticize his government, local or national, with full assurance that he will not be punished for it, then he lives under a de facto dictatorship, where the principle of law no longer holds, but rather the whim of someone who wields authority. A Christian will fulfill his mission, regardless of the form of government or its attitude toward him, but he will not labor under the fantasy that government is a tool of righteousness nor that a specific nation enjoys the special blessing of God.
