The Bible is our textbook for civic action. It contains principles that are valid and workable for all people, all cultures, and all time. It must be society’s starting point today.
Heroes of the Church in past centuries have recognized there are different jurisdictions within society, each being directly accountable to God, and each of which has certain boundaries and its own governmental structure. Those jurisdictions are: Self Government, Family Government, Ecclesiastical Government, and Civil (state) Government. Tyranny arises whenever any one of these jurisdictions steps beyond its own God-given boundaries and interferes unbiblically with the legitimate action of any of the other jurisdictions.
Civic actions are relevant to all members of the group, because no one in society can function long without affecting others. Choices have consequences, not only for one’s self, but for others also. In society we live with and in dependence on others. In order to function in this relationship, we need mutually acceptable rules to ensure that our actions are relatively predictable and fair. (I Cor 12:12-31; Romans 13:1-7; 1 Peter 2:13-17).
