My church is sermon audios Pastor Mike Slatterly, Edward Watson, Dr. Scott Johnson and now Pastor John Weaver. Thank you for being faithful to the Lord. God bless
Great Sermon! Governments are prone to idolatry because they deal in law which is always inherently religious.
It is in the nature of government to perpetuate itself. All politicians and parties will do anything to keep their power and authority.
John 11:47 The leaders said they had to get rid of Christ or they would lose their power and place.
If they would crucify Christ to keep their power they would sacrifice a Christian in a minute.
Corrupt depraved wicked men want to have dominion over other people rather than creation. Unsaved men like to play God.

Prov 16:6 By the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.
Job 28:28 The fear of the Lord is to depart from evil and wickedness and embrace God and obey Him.
2 Kings 17:7,8 Walking in statutes of the heathen is to worship false gods. 13 Keep my commandments and statutes but they would not and followed other gods.
God here is going to enslave the Israelites for obeying civil rulers.
