1. Civil government is one of the 3 God-ordained institutions established by God's providence for the preservation of mankind for His divine purpose. (Family and Church governments are the other two).
2. The purpose of civil government is to provide order and preserve peace among individuals, families and tribes in an established society, through laws and ordinances, to enjoy individual liberty, create opportunities for prosperity, and have freedom in the pursuit of happiness.
3. God, the Supreme Ruler of the nations, commands governments to exercise righteousness and dispense justice in order to preserve man and the world. Without righteousness there will be chaos; without justice--bloodshed. (Isa. 5:7) (read more...)

Author: Butch Belgica
Published between 1987 and 1991
One journeys through life and his life becomes a book - Creating for him a new totality, and identity without which, such life will be formless, inchoate even.
Bro. Butch Belgica's book is the story of a search for a more profound meaning of life, a deeper sense of worth as a Christian, a life which would fulfill the promises of Genesis: "Then God says, Let us make man in our image, in our likeness."
