From Doy Moyer

People are concerned that there is evil in the government. Not to be trite, but of course there is evil in the government. It is the nature of human governments. There is a reason why Scripture uses the imagery of beasts to represent world empires (Dan 7; Rev 13; Isa 27:1). Every human government ultimately comes under the sway of the dragon of old. Every human government becomes Babylon, in which God’s people are in exile. Christians are told to come out of them, to trust God, and to rely on the blood of the Lamb. Christians who trust God will not resort to violent overthrows or become insurrectionists. No good will be accomplished in the name of Christ by these means. We may be persecuted, beaten down, afflicted, and perplexed, but not driven to despair, not forsaken, and never destroyed (see 2 Cor 4:7-12). Let us take the perspective of heaven. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.
