As voting season is upon us, we must study the Scriptures. Theological errors more than anything else explain our present situation. Indeed, they explain the situation we have been in since 1789, when the foundations were laid to replace our national God and covenants with a theory of government that owes more to Locke than to Moses. This has been the cancer eating away at our national heart for over two centuries. If we submit to what God says about kings and kingdoms, our responsibility will become clear.
