When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
Proverbs 29:2 NKJV
We are made in the image and likeness of God, we carry His presence with us. We are to bring Heaven to earth, we are to change the atmosphere where we are. It's important for us to be involved in all areas of society. Government was established by God, as His children we need to be part of it.
