God and Government - Self Government

  • The first principle of a governmental system is self government. Self government relies on wisdom and the Fear of the Lord. For the Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
  • The motivation for self government begins in the knowledge that we are here to do the Lord's work. This in turn requires discipline.
  • Our hearts are naturally wicked and all that proceeds from it id evil, but for the mercy of God.
  • By being reborn and recreated by the One True God, only then are we able to self -govern ourselves.'
  • We need less state government when everyone has self government.
  • Self government leads to wisdom of speech. If you govern your mouth well you prove you have control of yourself.
