The eras of the nations, in which we live, bring us to the culmination and climax of man’s misrule. … There is a well-known work, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, which traces the descent of one of the great nations. Yet Rome was just a sample of all the rest. All other nations more or less conform to this pattern.

4250 - World AffairsWorld Affairs and National Politics:
And the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus
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!
