A religion that needs state power to enforce obedience to its beliefs is a religion that has lost confidence in the power of its Deity.Onward p. 145
We want just laws. We seek for just laws. We want evil to be thought evil and good, good. But we are people of another Kingdom and thus do not need an earthly kingdom to do our bidding or to flourish. We should be making inroads into the world’s kingdoms not the other way around. But getting a world system to do our bidding is not the same thing as spreading the values of the Kingdom of God throughout the culture by changing people’s hearts. The latter is the way of Jesus and the cross.
