This study guide provides first a scriptural understanding of citizenship, and second, practical insights to help Christians faithfully participate as citizens of the United States.
The focus is on God's revealed will for ordering our earthly lives and administering human affairs. Glimpses in the Old Testament combined with the full revelation of the New Testament provide important principles and instruction regarding freedom, government, and citizenship.
From that scriptural vantage point, the study evaluates the founding principles of our own form of government, diagnoses what is happening today in our society, and identifies the ways that churches, pastors, families, and individual Christians can and should faithfully participate.
