The Jews want to be a nation at a time when God does not want them to be one. … A great deal of the trouble of today is due to the fact that this nation which God does not want to have power, is trying to get it. … It is not in accordance with the mind of God. God’s time is future, but they have underground methods. I do not blame them in a way. If we had the background that they have, of being the nation that God has chosen, we would probably do likewise. … When any body of people tries to do something contrary to God’s plans, instead of being a blessing they will be a curse.

Since Constantine, the “Church” has taken part in earth’s politics, with very evil results, and now Protestantism, like Catholicism, threatens to take a large hand in controlling the “temporal powers,” in order to make a new world.

Friendly Aliens in a Foreign Land

We are called to be a pilgrim and a stranger. We must suffer quietly the present discomforts and risks of being out of gear with the world’s mighty machinery, national and international. Christ’s follower is to “set” his “affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2).

No one can be both a pilgrim passing through a given country and a citizen of it. In relation to this present world system we cheerfully adopt the former status. To the end of his sojourn the right-minded alien, wherever he may be, will do his utmost to benefit those about him; but his activities must be conducted by his alienship.

The heart of an alien should be set on the things of his fatherland, where are his sovereign, his home, and his permanent estates, and should not be “set” on the land where he is only a stranger and sojourner. Now an ambassador is never a citizen of any state save that which sends him.

by — Clyde L. Pilkington, Jr.

When did nationalism begin? What is God’s purpose for nationalism? Is the United States a Christian nation? Does any government have Favored Nation Status with God today? Should believers support Israel? What did Paul have to say about our citizenship? What is our role in relation to nations? Is our job to rid the world of evil? What should the believer’s attitude be toward earthly authority? Should all obedience to earthly magistrates be absolute? Are believers to pay their taxes? Where does voting and jury duty fit in? Why was the apostle Paul executed? These and many other questions are addressed in this groundbreaking work!
