Through us God offers to the world an alternative society. Have you noticed how fast the American system is becoming Marxist? Those who are timid call it socialist, no it is Marxist and keep an eye on how this administration is controlling more of people’s lives; their kind of change and new society is going to be implemented more by force and coercion than anything else. Christians must prepare to offer an alternative by applying God’s kingdom principles in all areas of life.
Between 1560 and 1599, The Geneva Bible was providentially unleashed upon a dark, discouraged, downtrodden English speaking world. Just when it looked as if the Machiavellian, Divine Right kings, such as the Tudors of England, were about to drive Christendom back to the days of Caesar worship, a Bible appeared that set the stage for a Christian Reformation of life and culture the likes of which the world had never seen. By the time of the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, just 28 years after the first printing of the Geneva Bible, it was already being said of the English that they were becoming a “people of the Book.” The results of a people reading and obeying the Word of God were the explosion of faith, character, the first missionary movement in history, literature, economic blessing, and political and religious freedom.
