I ended my last discussion with these questions. Is there any governments on earth that represent the true God? Even one? What about all the different religions on earth, are they from the true God? Is there a true religion on earth backed by God?
We will begin with governments. Which governments on earth represent the true God? As far as I know every nation on earth claims devotion to a god of some kind. As we continue to peer into earth’s affairs from God’s perspective, it should be easy to locate the ones that follow the two laws stated by Jesus when being tested by the Pharisees at Matthew 22: 35 through 40.
“One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Now you may ask, how is what Jesus said to the Pharisees connected to governments of the world? In his day, the nation of Israel was under the rule of the Roman Empire, but it claimed to maintain that it was God’s chosen nation, thereby making it also the kingdom or government of God.
