The forms of government in the Bible are dictatorships or monarchies or a combination of both. The United States Government was designed to be nothing like any other county in the world. If I lived in any other country in the world, I would not worry about stuff, I would just submit. In this country, I have a responsibility as a citizen to be involved. The founders of this nation set up the people as the governing body with individual representatives that would meet on our behalf. These representatives would also be our ambassadors to foreign nations. These representatives have certain rules they are supposed to follow.

If Christians refuse to be Cops, councilmen, mayors, state and federal representatives and senators, Christians will begin to be persecuted in this country for sure. Christ influences governments through the Sons of the Kingdom.
