This sermon is a defense of the fact that God's kingdom has political implications in the earth. Many Christians believe that Christianity should be politically neutral. This sermon shows there is no neutrality and God's Kingdom does in fact have political implications in the earth, affecting the governments of men. This sermon shows that this fact has resulted in the Church finding itself in confrontation with the State down through church history. The sermon ends by looking at the life of John Bunyan who himself suffered at the hands of the State because of his allegiance to Christ and His kingdom.
