"theocracy." The 20th century will be known as the
century that repudiated the idea of "theocracy" and
became the most violent century in the history of the human race.
Actually, it repudiated the idea of Christian
Theocracy, in which our laws conform to the will of God, and

admit that we advocate "Theocracy." Our
goal is to turn America into a Christian Theocracy.
This frightens most Americans, and understandably so. When most
Americans think of "theocracy" they envision a nation
dominated by corrupt priests or armed ayatollahs. In the post 9-11
era, "Taliban" might be the word most frequently
associated with the word "theocracy."
There is a world of difference between Osama bin Laden's
version of a Muslim theocracy and the
prophet Micah's version of a Christian Theocracy, an ideal
which had a great influence in creating America.

his vine and fig tree"
is a world without terrorists, mullahs, priests, and politicians.

A Definition Surprising in its
"Theocracy" comes from two Greek words, Theos,
God, and kratein, to rule.
A Theocracy is where God
rules, or governs.
Nothing here about priests; nothing here about the Taliban;
nothing about a policeman standing on every corner.
- A society where priests rule is better called an "ecclesiocracy"
- A society where a king rules is called a
"monarchy," and the
Bible says this form of government is a rejection of
Theocracy (1 Samuel 8).
- A society where lots of little kings rule -- but are called
"CEO's," or anything else -- is still a violation of
the spirit of 1 Samuel 8,
and is thus not a "Theocracy."
Many societies throughout history have been called
"theocracies." Some societies in our day are called
was once called a Theocracy. But our standard is not any other
country, past or present. My goal is not to make America like
any other nation, but to follow the blueprints given to us by
our Creator. In America's Declaration of Independence, those
blueprints are called "the Laws
of Nature and of Nature's God."
"God Bless America"
heard this phrase a lot in the days following 9-11. But do we
really want God intervening
in human history, changing things, ruling things, undoing what
man has done? Isn't deism more comfortable: God creating the
universe but stepping back, refusing to get involved in any way,
letting man the new god have his own way?
Are we a nation of hypocrites?
God Bless America, by Irving
"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer.
God Bless America.
Land that I love
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies ,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America
My home sweet home."

Every "solemn prayer" is a request for God to take
charge. Every prayer is
a request for Theocracy.
Theocracy: A society without priests and kings, all
people reconciled to God and to each other, living in harmony
and prosperity, blessed by God, governed by "the
Laws of Nature and of Nature's God."
"Theocracy" vs. "Providence"
In a sense, God
rules everywhere. Communist China can be said to be a part of
"God's Government" or Theocracy, and the eye of faith
can see God's judgments in China.
But the normal sense of the word "Theocracy" is a
political state which officially acknowledges the
authority of God and allows God to call the shots, politically
speaking. We distinguish between "Theocracy"
as a social state and "providence"
as God's government over nations which do not have a Theocratic
form of "government."
America Ever a Theocracy?
- If a "Theocracy" is where God makes the rules,
then America was (or was dedicated to progress along the path
of being) a benevolent, clergy-free Theocracy after 1776, a
nation "under God."
The Declaration of Independence declared that it was a
Theocracy; a nation officially acknowledging "a firm
reliance on the Protection of Divine
Providence." The thinking of philosophers like Locke
was embodied in the Declaration: "the
Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" reflected the
belief that America was obligated to obey God's will. That
"God rules" America was clearly stated by every
agency and branch of government on state and federal levels.
As the Supreme Court in Holy
Trinity vs. United States (1892) put it, "there
is a single voice making this affirmation."
- The real question is one of consistency:
- Is America being consistent with its Theocratic
- The national motto is "In
God We Trust."
Thus the question is not whether America is a
The question is, Are we consistent Theocracts, or are
we backsliders and apostates? And if we are not consistent,
can we really expect God to Bless America?
