Hi friends! Welcome to the lesson in our series about "The Bible and You: Practical Answers—Real Hope."
When we face problems, whether crime in our neighborhood or unemployment, threats of terrorism or potholes in the street, it is natural for us to look to our governments to help solve them. But we've all heard the cynics' comments about government:
•Henry Ward Beecher said: "The worst thing in this world, next to anarchy, is government."
•Milton Friedman said: "The government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem."
•And P.J. O'Rourke quipped, "Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys."
Why does it seem that our governments are helpless in the face of problems or can become the cause of more problems? Corruption plagues governments around the globe. And conflicts between governments seem to spiral out of control as our world becomes a more and more dangerous place.
But Jesus Christ promised a solution to all these problems! He is coming back to this earth and promises a perfect form of government that will truly serve your needs and the needs of every human being!
