Gn 1:26  Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every moving thing that moves on the earth.”

So it has been given to man to rule. Rulership then is the God given position, duty, and responsibility all men are to participate in while practicing and doing his virtues provided by Creator God in His image in man.

In the United States of America, the virtues are to be applied by citizens and statesmen within our constitutional democratic republic. Corruption in government must be exposed, the corrupt politician voted out, and the virtuous statesman elected. Corrupt unelected appointments must then be replaced.

Dt 19:19 then you shall do to him just as he had intended to do to his brother. Thus you shall purge the evil from among you.

Dt 19:20 “The rest will hear and be afraid, and will never again do such an evil thing among you.

Dt 19:21 “Thus you shall not show pity: life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

Correction in the Church, Culture, and Government

Part of the purpose of the church and its clergy is to point the prophetic finger at corruption in community, culture, and government. The churches’ clergymen have allowed the Johnson Amendment to silence its prophetic voice against unjust law and the usurpation of church authority for fear of losing their 501c3 tax-exempt status, property, and pay.

Jd 11  Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.
