We believe the the nations and their governments (kings, presidents, legislators, etc) are required to order the personal lives and the life of the nation by the Bible. Dr. Jay Grimstead writes:
6. The Bible Is the Plumb Line for All Nations as to How They Are To Govern Their Countries
which laws to impose as civil law, how they are to run their courts, families, economics, what morals to require of their societies, and what worldview (philosophy) should undergird their culture, this being true whether a culture is historically Christian, Moslem, Hindu, or atheistic! This is so because God created them and the rest of the universe and requires this of all men. That same God came to earth as Jesus, the incarnation of the Trinity’s second Person, and became “the last Adam” and the Lamb of God and Saviour so people may now be right with God for time and eternity. He also came as the genetic heir of King David’s throne to be King of earth now. (Article 18 of Concerning the Kingdom of God)
